Coral Snow, anyone heard of it?

Zeovit Coral Snow is awesome but it’s not what you think

Just a short article on the stuff. Sounded kinda neat to me, though not a replacement for anything we already do.

Yes, I have some. Want it? I was using it religiously every 5 days, feeding my corals. But I started to see way too many brittle stars who like it too. I have since stopped using it and my corals (even the SPS) are growing way better without it. Less brittle stars now too.

Not really want it. Just curious about the product. Interesting about the bristles though. Wonder why their pop would go up from adding clay.

I use to spot feed with it. I saw no real noticeable improvements. It breaks down into DOC's really easily, so I stopped using it. I don't have any filter feeders that require it anyway.

Am I confused here? I read this article the other day, and it isn't a "food" like Marine Snow is designed to be, rather an alternative to carbon in home aquaria.

It's clay, that absorbs junk like carbon and is then supposedly absorbed by corals. Don't know much about it besides that.

Then I am way off track. Never heard of this stuff.

I was just making sure I hadn't read it wrong or dreamed it...

I don't know much either other than what Jake wrote in the article attached. I am curious though...

Reading the article helped.
It binds organic compounds and then becomes heavy enough for mechanical filtration to grab it, like a skimmer. Might work fine. But as all their products they are $$$$. As he said, it replaces a bit of carbon or GFO, but he didn't mention it costs many times what those cost.
