PhycoPureTM CopePod BlendTM Phytoplankton
is a unique blend of LIVE microalgae specifically assembled for use as a primary feed for calanoid and harpacticoid COPEPODS and reef aquarium filter feeders. True pelagic(calanoids) and numerous benthic species (harpacticoids) will only eat live microalgae. Live microalgae is essential to produce and maintain copepod populations. You can raise your own phytoplankton cultures and we support this wholeheartedly but in the absence of doing this, using AlgaGen’s PhycoPureTM Copepod BlendTM is the perfect approach.
Aquarists have reported great results when fed to clams, species specific corals (gorgonians, brain corals, mushroom corals, leathers, montipora, carnations), feather dusters, tube worms, sponges and certain anemones. It can also be used to gut load rotifers and Artemia. PhycoPureTM CopePod BlendTM is cultured in purified natural Atlantic Ocean water and should be refrigerated. PhycoPureTM CopePod BlendTM has no preservatives, is not subjected to harsh processing steps and is batch processed to ensure quality.
