Vitamin C Supplement For Marine Fishes And Invertebrates.
Vitamin C has been shown to enhance the immune system of fishes and invertebrates, as well as facilitate the metabolism of fatty acids, and stimulate the production of connective tissue, such as that damaged by head and lateral line erosion, coral propagation, bacterial and parasitic infestations, and wounds. Marine C helps correct vitamin C deficiencies in ornamental marine organisms. Can be used as a daily supplement or when treating damaged/sick fishes and invertebrates, although not a medication. Particularly useful when fragmenting and propagating hard and soft corals. Important: read Use & Interaction on opposite sidebar before use!
For general use and to aid fishes that are ill, damaged or invertebrates that have been recently fragmented, add 1 ml (cap on 8 oz. bottle equals 5 ml, cap on 64 oz. bottle equals 10 ml) per 50 gallons aquarium water daily. Observe reaction of aquarium residents and adjust dosage accordingly. Do not overdose!
Considerations for use:
Daily use of Marine C provides ornamental marine fishes and invertebrates with a source of stabilized high grade vitamin C compounds. It is recommended that Marine C be added directly to the aquarium in an area of high water flow. Protein skimming and use of activated carbon may be continued when dosing this product; carbon may remove a portion of the vitamin C, however you may find that the benefits of carbon use outweigh the slight removal of active product. Vitamin C is often deficient in aquariums in which no previous supplementation has been done. Do not exceed 1 ml per 50 gallons on a daily basis at any time. Use in conjunction with Kent ZoeconTM and Zoe MarineTM to provide a full range of vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids. This product is not a substitute for ZoeTM. Marine C is buffered but still slightly acidic, therefore it is important that pH and alkalinity be monitored during use of this product. Maintain an alkalinity of 8-12 dKH with Kent Marine Superbuffer-dKHTM. Please see our website at www.kentmarine.com for additional information regarding this and other Kent products.

Pink Feather Duster (Sabellastarte sp.)
The Feather Duster, also known as Giant Feather Duster, has a fan-shaped crown (radiole) that is tan or orange with brown band colorations. The radiole of some species from certain locales may be up to 7 inches in diameter, or of brighter colors.
The Feather Duster uses the radiole to filter out small floating organisms, which it directs toward its mouth, located at the center of the crown. It protects its segmented body by secreting a parchment-like tube to cover itself. When it is disturbed, it can quickly pull in its radiole into the tube. If it is severely stressed, it will discard its crown, growing it back later.
The Feather Duster is usually found in the coral rubble at the base of the reef aquarium, with some of the rubble being incorporated into its parchment-like tube. It needs to be housed in a well-established reef system as it is dependent upon plankton for its diet. It is very intolerant of copper-based medications.
Supplemental feeding of phytoplankton and liquid organic foods should be provided.
