Coral Frenzy has released two brand new products over the last few months, tripling the size of their food lineup and allowing the company to target all sorts of corals for feeding. Their original Coral Frenzy was a powder-like food with tiny particles great for targeting filter feeders and planktivorous fish. Then last year, they debuted their 1mm Reef Pellet and quickly followed that up with a 0.5mm version. We’ve seen plenty of time lapse feeding videos using the Coral Frenzy pellets, and we’re happy to say that we’ve finally got our hands on the trio of foods for review. To make the review so much sweeter, Ken Easter of Coral Frenzy personally delivered the food all the way from the Detroit area (he had other business in Houston besides meeting up with us, but we still feel special).
We’ve used the original Coral Frenzy in the past with a lot of success, so our expectations are quite high for the pellets forms. While we haven’t had the full opportunity to do our own time lapse videos or lengthy testing, we can do a quick side-by-side comparison of each food to see how they differ.
The powder version of the Coral Frenzy is the most different from the bunch. It is very fine, with a rich smell that is present in most dry foods (onyl true fish nerds can appreciate the smell of fish food). The two pellets, on the other hand, are quite similar, differing obviously in the size of each pellet. We didn’t break out the ruler to verify the 0.5mm and 1mm lengths, but the larger pellet is significantly larger…though 1mm is still quite small.
The other thing we wanted to hint at was the fact that the food comes with a manufactured date and a “best if used by” date. Most other foods on the market have an expiration date, but few if any have a manufactured date. This obviously ensures some freshness, and as Ken explained to us, it keeps products from sitting on the store shelves far past their prime.
All in all, we’re very pleased with what we’ve seen with the food and can’t wait to start shooing some serious time lapse videos of it being gobbled up.
