A nutritious diet scientifically designed for the nutritional needs of both Photosynthetic and Non-Photosynthetic coral, Gorgonia and planktivorous fish.
AZOX macro Coral diet is comprised of various size zooplankton gut loaded with phytoplankton and selected for their size, nutrition and attraction by coral. These small meaty particles are neutrally buoyant, packed with energy and ideal in aquariums with Non-Photosynthtic specimens such as gorgonia and tentacled corals. The included appitite stimulant also makes the particles attractive to finicky eaters such as Anthias sp. and Mandarinfish.
Available in an 8oz. attractive pump, AZOX makes broadcast feeding a sinch and encourages natural feeding responses in aquarium specimins. Supercharge the effectiveness by target feeding AZOZ to larger coral mouths and see an instant feeding reaction.
- Multiple particle size
- Laboratory manufactured
- REAL copepods, rotifers and nauplii
- Long shelf life and no foul smell
- Convenient attractive pump design
Feed them what they need!
Planktonic feeding opportunies are abound in the ocean. Each evening as dusk settles in and lays a deeper blue blanket over the oceans depths, etherial clouds of Zooplankton permeate the relm. These organisms account for fully one half of the feeding opportunities afforded to the seas life. In closed systems, such as the home aquarium, bringing these microscopic feeds can mean the difference between success and failure. Add AZOX and watch the reaction!
Laboratory tested AZOX casts a wide array of sizes, types and shapes of natural food to your captive specimens.
How does AZOX stimulate feeding
The idea is relatively simple. By culturing copepods, rotifers and other zooplankton naturally found in the wild food web.
Using copepods and rotifers naturally found in ocean food webs, the particle size and shape can easily be provided. An augmentation of multiple strains of shrimp nauplii packed with powerful feeds and attractants rounds out the offering. Microscopic organisms undergo a flash bio chemical process where their structure is preserved keeping the natural shape, specific gravity and chemical smell. A biochemical feeding stimulant completes.
Achieving neutral boyancy in a preserved food is the grail of aquarium food technology. Through technological advances Aqua-Tech Co. has been able to give AZOX the depth staying power needed to keep the food organizms in the water column for and extended period. They will neither sink nor float giving specimens maximum time to consume the food before they can add to nutrient loads.
Enriched with Phytoplankton
We have taken our most nutritious and digestible microalgaes and gut loaded zooplankton. These contain carotanoids (color enhancing nutrients), Astaxanthan (a powerful anti-oxidant), and Omega-3 fatty acids (nutritious probiotics). All together they make up a powerfull and attractive naturally nutritious planktonic feed.
A reef essential
In systems with Non-Photsynthetic coral such as Dendronepthea sp. andTubastrea sp., planktonic feeds and good water flow are essential since the coral cannot manufacture it's own food. The lack of zoxanthellate mean that these specimens were virtually impossible to keep in the past. With AZOX the dream is finally a reality in one convenient step.
