More coral video awesomeness

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.

This video was posted by Reef Wholesale, an aquarium goods wholesaler based in Ontario, Canada and the North American distributor for Fauna Marin, Germany (an Advanced Aquarist sponsor).
