What does PNS YelloSno do?

The water columns of marine environments--even the relatively clear waters over tropical coral reefs--can become littered with tiny bits of suspended organic matter. On reefs, this material may wash in from adjacent habitats or accumulate locally from animal feces, expelled coral mucus, copepod exoskeletons, etc. While not particularly wholesome by themselves, these particulates are nutritionally enriched as they are colonized by various types of heterotrophic bacteria. Particles consolidate as the musilage secreted by resident microbes causes them to become sticky; this reduces their buoyancy and causes them to slowly sink. Such aggregations are referred to as marine snow. Suspended and settled marine snow is an important food source for filter-feeders and detritivores respectively. Purple nonsulfur bacteria (PNSB), which are highly digestible and nutritious, are known to be commonly associated with marine snow. Composed of an all-natural chitin substrate that mimics copepod exoskeleton fragments and coated with PNSB, Hydrospace PNS YelloSno effectively simulates a marine snowfall. With a wide particle size range, this product may be captured and consumed by a large variety of suspension-feeding animals (e.g. corals). It is rich in protein, vitamins and amino acids. Just following a curing process, PNS YelloSno is preserved for a long shelf life by flash pasteurization. PNS YelloSno is specially formulated for use in saltwater aquaria. And, it is completely safe, non-toxic and non-pathogenic. PNSB may vary in color from yellow to red to purple depending upon pigment content; product color may vary from yellow to dull orange.

Directions for PNS Yello Sno as follows:

To feed, add up to one 16 fl oz (450ml) bottle for every 500 US gal system water (approximately 1 mL/gal) in an area of high flow. For best results, use frequently but sparingly. Use weekly when included as part of a regular feeding regime.

Dark purple inclusions are clumps of biofloc. Particle sizes range from miniscule (e.g. free-living, deactivated microbial cells) to huge (e.g. aggregated clumps of substrate and flocculant). Shake the bottle vigorously just prior to use for finer particle sizes; shake lightly if large flakes are desired.

Strong odours and slight colour variations are normal for this product.

Contains reconstituted water (buffered, purified water), 100% organic growth medium, 100% organic substrate and deactivated purple non-sulfur bacteria (Rhodopseudomonas palustris).
