We offer Copepods with 5 different live varieties of calanoids and harpacticoids copepods, rotifers, and live mix of phytoplankton. These, unlike Tigrios, are warm water breeders and we believe that one or all will reproduce in your tank establishing a population in your aquarium that will serve as a food source and an important part of your ecosystem. These Zooplanktons are generally smaller than Tigrios and each bottle will contain the entire life cycle from egg cases, nauplii, juveniles, pregnant females and adults. We recommend adding the entire contents to your tank after dark so that the critters can find hiding places in the rock and sand. Depending on tank size and benthic
inhabitants, this product should be added regularly to your tank to supplement the population and can be added weekly or monthly. We also recommend loading all new tanks with one bottle per 30 gals to enhance cycling and jumpstart your zooplankton population.
We also offer a live phytoplankton with as much as 60,000,000 cells per cc in a 12 oz. bottle. This product should be refrigerated until used. This product is entirely live as we believe that concentrated live phyto are damaged by the concentrating process and only add to the detritus in your tank. Our live phytoplankton is a mixture of 6 different varieties of motile and non-motile organisms including Nanno, Iso, Tetra, R lens, Platymonas, and D. Salina. As in nature the percentages vary by season. Non-motile phytoplankton such as Nanno will settle in the containers and will need to be shaken regularly. Phytoplankton is a critical source of food rich in EPA and DHA (Omega3 fatty acids) for zooplankton, corals, and fish and should be added regularly. We recommend adding one capful of Phytoplantkton per 30 gals daily
