Our nutrient rich, supplemental food features a unique formulation containing a proprietary probiotic blend such as but not limited to live Lactobacillus, Saccharomyces, and Bacillus species. Benereef will not overload your system with waste because the uptake percentage and absorption capacity of everything in your tank is increased. It feeds the nitrifying bacteria without clouding up your tank.
Benereef helps establish a healthy bioload and can help avoid “new tank” syndrome. The particle size is 3-3000 microns, so even the tiniest mouths can feed on it. The quality and percentage of proteins in Benereef play another major role in this process. The absorption capacity of the entire reef ecosystem is greatly enhanced. It’s engineered so that everything in the tank consumes, feeds and utilizes it. Benereef will adapt to any tank system. It’s the most forgiving reef food on the market. You’ll notice immediate feeding response and amazing polyp extension. Your SPS, LPS, softies, fish and inverts will all flourish, color and grow like never before. You’ll notice overall healthy, happy and plump corals after feedings and after about three weeks of continuous use, see an increase in coral growth and coloration.

Will not overload your nutrients
Does not cloud your water
¼ tsp of Benereef treats 25g of tank water
Mix a ¼ tsp (1.23 ml) of Benereef with ½ Tbsp (7.5 ml) of tank water, stir and wait 3-5 minutes for the beneficial probiotics to activate before adding to the tank. Feed 3 times a week for the first two weeks and then adjust to your systems needs thereafter. You can slowly increase your feedings each week depending on your system. You can broadcast or spot feed without turning off your equipment. For maximum results, leave your blowers on and turn off your pump 15 to 20 minutes. Do this once a week for your heavy feeding. Benereef can be fed daily in smaller doses. Add Benereef to your frozen foods and feed to your fish weekly.
TO SEE MAXIMUM RESULTS USE BENEREEF FOR AT LEAST 30 DAYS.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND BENEREEF
How do corals benefit from the nutrients and microbes found in Benereef?
Answer: Benereef doesn’t have a high protein content but rather a high carbohydrate content which is important because if you have a higher surplus of proteins and they are broken down you reach ammonia levels that are toxic to your system and reef inhabitants. Benereef’s bacteria serve multiple functions for coral, such as being a food to corals. They take the waste products that the corals produce like ammonia and incorporate that into the bacterial cell so it is producing food for the corals as the bacteria grow. The bacteria also reduce the nutrient level to the point you don’t get algae blooms. Inside the corals the bacteria produce compounds, (antibiotics) among other things that inhibit pathogenic bacteria therefore creating a very beneficial symbiotic relationship.
Why is Benereef better at not creating phosphate pollution in salt water tanks?
Phosphate cycle: Benereef has been engineered with the perfect balance of phosphates which are an essential nutrient in any system. As food and nutrients are consumed and excreted during the phosphate cycle it will release orthophosphates into the water and if those orthophosphates are not used you’ll get algae blooms. Bacteria are scavengers and they seek out and capture those phosphates and store it and when the coral eats and consumes those bacteria you move those phosphates from the bacteria to the coral.
The Nitrogen Cycle, Benereef, and the nutrient composition of waste compounds such as ammonia and nitrates
When protein is being consumed and broken down it produces ammonia. The Natural environment for corals and the ammonia levels in the ocean are an extremely low concentration of ammonia in the water around .001 parts per million. Some algae (particularly those that are associated with corals) can fix nitrogen by taking the atmospheric nitrogen and convert it into ammonia and the ammonia is assimilated by the algae and corals in protein. When the proteins are re-digested the ammonia is released which creates toxicity. There are certain types of bacteria that will convert that ammonia to nitrites and others that will continue to convert it into nitrates which are less toxic than ammonia. Benereef’s bacteria and other algae will also take that nitrate and use them for growth material and then the corals consume those algae and bacteria for food. Benereef’s proteins come from multiple sources of high quality proteins that play an important role in this process.
How Does Benereef help “New tank Syndrome”
Every tank system is different and we at Benepets understand this. We have cultivated the perfect community of bacterias and other nutrients to avoid the initial shock of nutrient overload in the water to keep the perfect balance of organisms for the salt water ecosystem. Benereef can be used skillfully to help establish a healthy bio load quickly
