Difference between microplankton and phytoplankton

Concerning the feeding of corals, is there a difference between microplankton and phytoplankton. Would it be OK to feed a coral that eats microplankton phytoplankton. I ahve a bubble, flower pot, and shrooms, is that acceptable for them (phytoplankton)? TIA.......

phyto just means it is photosynthetic. It should be just fine.

Many corals have a specific particle size they prefer, hopefully your phytoplankton is a variety of species rather than a monoculture, and therefore has a variety of particle sizes.
