phytoplakton is a very very small (like microscopic to slightly bigger than microscopic) food which is utilized mainly by corals as dietary supplement.

Phyto is mainly fed upon by soft corals whereas sps prefer carnivorous fare. Many lps will consume either.

I target feed some to my clam and just let the rest flow through the tank (all pumps off for the clam, then PH back on, then main goes back on).
