Rotifers average size are around 0.1–0.5 mm long making them a great food for filter feeding animals like most corals, clams, many other members of the reef tank. Rotifers are nearly microscopic and are a crucial part of the natural food chain being a primary food source for copepods, and amphipods as well as starfish.
Feed only as much as your tank will consume in a 1 minute period, multiple times a day. It is best to feed very small amounts multiple times a day over a single large feeding. Fish and other filter feeders will naturally graze and scavenge for food throughout the day and by offering different foods multiple times a day will mimic their natural feeding instincts and lead to better coloration and overall healthier fish.
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.
