AlgaGen PhycoPure Reef Blend Information

PhycoPureTM REEF BLEND is a blend of LIVE microalgae specifically assembled for use as a supplement for marine reef aquarium filter feeders. PhytoPlankton are single celled “plants” that are important to the health of a reef tank. PhytoPlankton take excess nutrients such as nitrates, phosphates, heavy metals, iron, as well as carbon dioxide, and combine them using sunlight, during photosynthesis, to create oxygen and the essential fatty acids that are critical to the health of marine organisms. These Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) are either consumed directly by corals, clams, or other filter-feeders. Copepods also consume PhytoPlankton and are in turn eaten by fish or corals. In this way these super important fatty acids enter the food chain. PhycoPureTM REEF BLEND is composed of 9 different species of microalgae spanning a range of particle sizes (some-thing for everyone).

In addition, these species are well recognized for their nutritional properties. All come from temperature acclimated aquaculture strains are cultured in purified natural Atlantic Ocean water, pathogen-free and cleansed of excess nutrients. PhycoPureTM REEF BLEND should be refrigerated. It has no preservatives, is not subjected to harsh processing steps that might damage the cells, and is never prepackaged.

Ingredients: T. Iso, Rhodomona lens, Pavlova, Nannochloropsis Chaetoceros, Thalassiosria weissflogii, Zooxanthellae (2 clades), Micromonas, Synechococcus

Feeding Instructions: Shake before using, 5mL per 10 gallons, 3-4 times per week. May be spot fed, turn off skimmer for approximately ½ hour to ensure maximum benefit.

Manufacturer Info

AlgaGen LLC
AlgaGen was formed in 2002 with the goal of deriving products from plankton to benefit human and animal health. Early on, our passion for the aquarium hobby led us to ascertain that there was a need in aquaculture and marine ornamental market for a consistent supply of high quality live plankton cultures for breeding and feeding efforts. We decided to step up to the plate.

We are a small company comprised of only 8 people. We are just the right mix of academic and commercial experiences with a real understanding of how important quality is with regards to this stage of the food chain. We have an experience set that spans greater than 30 years producing phytoplankton and zooplankton for hatcheries, scientific institutions and public aquariums where quality and attention to detail is critical.

AlgaGen is a world leader in the production of copepods and phytoplankton. Our products have been utilized in countless novel species development projects such as leafy sea dragons, lookdowns, sea horses, palometa, mandarins, angels, tangs, snook, tuna, cod, sturgeon in addition to various coral and jellyfish propagation projects.

We Practice Sustainability! We grow products that are not only good for your marine life, they are good for the environment! Microalgae consumes carbon dioxide (CO2) and in turn produces oxygen (O2). We recycle! The phytoplankton we culture feeds the copepods and the wastewater from the copepods feed other production systems. It is considerably more cost effective to grow PhytoPlankton and CopePods than it is to harvest them from the wild. We use less fossil fuels to grow plankton than are used to run a boat…. less pollution too!

Our Products are Safe for your System! AlgaGen products are safer to use than wild harvested - no pathogenic bacteria, no parasitic organisms, no related fish diseases. We maintain strict protocols to insure our products are free of pathogens and we test them on a continual basis. When you use an AlgaGen product, you are getting a product with uncompromised quality and value, produced in a controlled laboratory setting.
