Live marine Tetraselmis microalgae starter culture

Live marine Tetraselmis microalgae starter culture

Live marine Tetraselmis microalgae starter culture

This phytoplankton algae has been cultured for invertebrate culture at ZM. Invertebrates fed on live algae will have a higher natural HUFA content and therefore increase their nutritional value to fry. To maintain and develop this culture you need to set aside an area with a warm stable temperature, aeration for the culture vessels, 1-2 plant bulbs rigged approx. 200mm to the side of the culture vessels, and a timer providing 12-14 hours of light per day. It is important to avoid culture contamination from nearby fish tanks as any rotifers accidentally transferred will start consuming your algae. Aim to set up 3-6 separate cultures in case a culture crashes and aim for approx 3-4 times the volume of algae to invertebrate cultures being reared.

5 out 5 Amazing quality

This review is for: Live Tetraselmis microalgae

This is quite simply the highest quality phyto available to buy anywhere. I've purchased several types of phyto from other places in the past which have always been overpriced and very weak in comparison. This phyto is always very dark with a very strong density and I couldn't wish for a higher quality phyto. Highly recommended!

This review is for: Live Tetraselmis microalgae

Good product. I was a bit surprised how well two 100ml bottles, into a 10L bucket grew, nice surprise after being away all week, went from barely noticeable green hint to a soild green colour. Had 16 hrs of LED light a day and 5ml of the Micro Algae Grow, in a Greenhouse & aerated. The second bucket under same conditions didn't fair as well but still better than I hoped.
