    I was always sceptically:whistling: in regards to these liquid foods as the main ingredients were CA, ALK, MG, SN and very little actual proteins, lipids, etc.

    Last night i put 5 ML in my Tank as my CA and ALK was finished and low and behold i got a crazy feeding response from the tiny Bristle stars and coco worms in the Mushroom rock that i have i could not believe it as about 7 bristle stars were filter feeding as well as 5 coco worms all at the same time i usually only see 1 open at a time. Oh yes and the Mushrooms expanded like i have never seen before

    I will admit that the reef snow from Brightwells is an awesome product and is not just a balanced elemental complex.

    Oh its also about a year old as i never used it and always kept it in the fridge

    glad to hear that you are using it. i read an article(comment) on another site that said it was no good. this was after i had just bought some. i hadnt been using it and i found it amongst my bottles of impulse buys last night. i started using it again because i got a tiny crocea clam yesterday and want to make sure it gets what it needs. i now feel inspired to use mine because of your comment!
