Piscine Energetics Calanus are harvested from pristine arctic waters and make a great coral and small fish food. Their bright orange coloration stems from the high levels of astaxanthin along with other carotenoid pigments. Using the same flash-freezing process as the famous PE Mysis all the nutrition is bio-encapsulated within the zooplankton making it a great food for fresh and saltwater tanks.

Highly nutritious Calanus are a zooplankton that is highly desired by fish, invertebrates, and corals. They are great for target feeding corals as well as other filter feeding organisms with their small particle size the PE Calanus is easily digested and broken down into precious energy for the animal. The minimal particle size is attributed to the unique stage that the Calanus is at in their life cycle when they are sustainably harvested.

Fish - It is recommended to feed no more food than what your fish can consume in a 1 minute period of time, multiple times a day. It is best to fully thaw the cube and broadcast throughout the water column. With smaller aquariums, the cube should be proportioned accordingly.
Coral - PE Calanus can be used for target feeding or broadcast feeding. Feed only as much as your corals will consume in a single feeding session. With smaller particle food it is best to feed very small amounts multiple times a day over a single large feeding. When feeding corals it is best to put a very small amount in the water column a few minutes before to activate the natural feeding response from corals, then target feed the corals with a pipette or similar tool.
NOTE: Handling a frozen food that is derived from a live animal can cause the same allergic reaction possible by handling the live animal itself. To avoid potential problems, always wash your hands immediately after use and avoid contact with your nose and mouth prior to washing.
