The LPS Coral Pellet from New Era Aquaculture is a new coral food for target feeding of large polyp stony corals. The New Era LPS Coral Pellet will cost about the same as the marine pellet, about $15 for a 150g container which is considerably cheaper than $25 for 100 ml of Fauna Marin’s LPS coral pellet. The New Era LPS Coral Pellet is not much different from the the New Era Marine Pellet, it is cold-extruded, soft and mashable into larger sizes, but it does include a few tweaks to optimize the coral feeding process.
Certain Amino Acids have been added to the New Era LPS Coral Pellet to elicit a stronger feeding response from corals, stimulating polyps into feeding mode and getting the feeding tentacles to emerge so that the coral can take the food in the first place. Additionally, the calcium content of the New Era LPS Coral Pellet is higher than the marine pellet due to the addition of shrimp shell powder. It is not clear whether corals can uptake extra calcium gastronomically but a little calcium bump in the food couldn’t hurt. The New Era Aquaculture LPS Coral Pellet has only experienced a soft release with certain UK dealers and Aqua Digital in Canada receiving one of the initial batches of the new food.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Easy to use, soft pellet
Cons: the container is too big

I've been using this coral food for many months now. It's really easy to use and my plates and brains do well on it

I just don't like the minimum container size you have to buy it in. If I would not give some to my fish, they would dry out before I would get a chance to use it all

If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
