In addition to this, it will also require the correct levels of Calcium, Alkalinity, and Magnesium along with various other trace elements found in natural seawater.
Additional feeding isn't required to maintain its health, as they get the majority of their food from photosynthesis.

Be sure to keep an eye on your nutrient levels though, as excessive nutrients can cause it to lose colouration.
