Food for filter feeders and some coral. Just another part of the ecosystem! Very Happy

If you have seeded live rock then there is a good chance that you have zooplankton. If you want to add to the tank i would add a phytoplankton. That is going to boost your pod and zooplankton population and the overall nutrients in your tank. As well as provide food for filter feeders, ie fan worms clams, and some coral.
