AlgaGen PhycoPure Copepod Blend Phytoplankton Food - 16oz Information




If you are managing a coral reef tank, or planning to have one, the most important thing you must know is what corals eat. If you don't know what they feed on, then there's no way you can make them grow and thrive in your own reef tank.

First and foremost, corals eat a lot of stuff but that stuff is usually provided for by the ocean. Corals eat anything from algae, microscopic organisms to trace elements found in the water. When corals are in their natural habitats, it isn't hard for them to get the food they need. But when they are in a man-made reef tank system, it's up to you - the owner -- to make sure that your corals are well-fed.

What you need is a bottle of the AlgaGen PhycoPure Copepod Blend Phytoplankton Food Pet Store. This bottle is full of a rich and nutritious blend of microalgae and zooxanthellae. At 2 to 20 um, the particles are small enough to be effectively consumed by corals.

The microorganisms in this blend come from ecosystems found in tropical reefs so you can be sure that what your corals are getting is as natural as it can get.

The AlgaGen PhycoPure Copepod Blend Phytoplankton Food is produced in seawater that has been treated with charcoal filtration and UV sanitation.

PhycoPure: 7-8 spp blend of microalgae plus zooxanthellae. Particle size ranges from 2-20um. Spp include nanno, micromonas, pavlova, chatoceros, thallassiosira, tetraselmis, T.isochrysis, rhodomonas, and zooxanthellae clade A and/or B. These sp. came from tropical reef ecosystems and/or successful aquaculture operations. It is produced in natural seawater that has been treated with ozone/uv/ charcoal.

Package does contain nutrients (N and P) but not enough to impact ones’ tank when fed according to directions. Shelf life is 3 months but has stayed live for up to 7 months in our lab. The sp profile shifts over time to the more aggressive spp which is why we advertise 3 months-refrigerated. Blends are produced weekly to ensure freshness and quality.

Note** Be aware! This product does have a smell.
