PhytoPlasm™ Phyto Green, is a great assemblage of Phytoplankton. It has 2 different types and even contains zooxanthellae. It is a mixture of microalgae, known for their nutritional goodness as well as attributes that include natural antibiotics and antivirals that are similar to garlic. It is an excellent general feed for your reef.
It is not right to say that “Phyto is just phyto” or that “…all algae are the same and it does not matter what you use as long as you add some phyto (plankton)” Microalgae or Phytoplankton are as diverse a description as “food” is to what you have on a plate. Clearly popcorn is different from steak which differs from broccoli. The same applies for phytoplankton/microalgae and anyone who tells you other has been misinformed and is passing that on to you!
Marine organisms feed by smell and particle size and in other cases they just mass filter the water for whatever is available. We have observed some corals do this and actually reject certain types of microalgae/phytoplankton. So NO! Not all phytoplankton/microalgae are appropriate for feeding. There are specific combinations of phytoplankton/microalgae that should be used to grow certain marine animals. PhytoPlasm™ Phyto Green is a solid general approach to mass feeding a reef system.
Did you know that phytoplankton/microalgae is used to condition water in aquaculture. Live phytoplankton/microalgae will bind heavy metals and take up excess nutrient, including CO2.
The PhytoPlasm™ Phyto Green is an excellent food for amphipods, copepods, shrimp larvae, sponges, featherduster, gorgonians and soft corals.
The green species we selected vary in size to feed different organisms. We recommend using Phyto-PLASM™ Green to feed rotifers, brine, harpacticoid copePODS, amphiPODS, planktivorous corals, feather dusters, zoanthids, and can be used to create "Greenwater" for larval care and production.
Phyto-PLASM™ Green comes in the Easy Feed Packaging™ that allows you to drip-feed your system for days at a time, or it can also be stored in the refrigerator and used "manually" to spot feed when desired. The life span in the refrigerator is upwards of 5 months. The product should be agitated periodically to prevent settling and maintain its shelf life.
