If you are looking into getting Reef Roids, this review may give you a better idea on what to expect. This is my Reef Roids by Polyp Lab review.
For corals and fish, it smells delicious. Once it hits the water, you can see all the critters coming out from the crevices to get some. For us, it smells like any other pelleted fish food. There are no strong odors that will surprise you. If you can stand the smell of fish food, you can stand the smell of reef roids.
Do Corals Like It?
No, they love it! Seriously, corals seem to really like this product and will eat it every time offered. I have yet to see any coral with a mouth refuse the food. Feeding tentacles are always out for more.
Do Corals Grow Faster Eating Reef Roids?
In my opinion, yes corals do grow faster when fed Reef Roids. I have noticed better polyp extension on my SPS corals, and more polyps growing from my Zoanthids.
Does it Cause Phosphates and Nitrates to Rise?
I’m sure if you overfeed the tank with anything, you will see rises in both phosphates and nitrates, but if fed according to instructions, you shouldn’t see your levels rise. I have yet to see my phosphates or nitrates rise and I’ve been feeding this stuff for 5 months now. Keep in mind, I do weekly 15% water changes.
Is it Better to Target Feed or Broadcast Feed?
I prefer to target feed with a syringe or turkey baster. Knowing that each coral is eating is how I like to feed the tank. I do see my zoas and chalices reacting a lot better when I target feed too. When I broadcast feed, I feel like the filter catches most of the food.
How Long Will The Food last?
It all depends on how much you use. For me, the 4 oz container should last me the year with only using 2-4 pinches of it a week. Speaking with other users of this product, it seems to last them a very long time too.
What’s the Worst Thing About It?
Since everything loves it, you can imagine how crazy aiptasia goes for it. I did see an explosion of aiptasia once I started feeding this stuff. I assume it’s because the aiptasia thrive off this stuff. Just make sure you have your aiptasia-x on hand if you have aiptasia. If you don’t have aiptasia, then there’s nothing really bad about feeding Reef Roids.
Reef Roids Review Analysis
Reef Roids definitely lives up to it’s expectation in the sense that it acts as steroids for the reef tank. Corals, fish, and invertebrates all love it. It’s a thumbs up on our list of reef supplies to get.
