It wasn’t long ago when reefkeepers underestimated the importance of foods for coral, but recent studies confirm the value of feeding corals.  It’s difficult to view corals as voracious animals because of the tiny scale and slow motion of their predation, but when you zoom in on a coral and speed up the footage, we can better appreciate their ability to consume food. This R.yuma mushroom coral (one of the most beautiful I’ve seen) proves corals pig out … even supermodel corals.
