Continuum Aquatics Phyto-Blast Wide Range Phytoplankton Complex Information




Phyto•Blast
Description: Wide Range Aquacultured Phytoplankton Complex

Features:
��� Wide Range, aquacultured phytoplankton Complex
• Provides proteins, naturally occurring lipids and vitamins
• Rich in chlorophyll, carotenoids and xanthins

Advantages:
Phyto•Blast is a nutritious complex of several naturally occuring marine phytoplankton in a wide range of sizes from 1 to 20 uM. Phyto•Blast is real phytoplankton, aquacultured in saltwater under pristine conditions, not simply a mixture of freshwater algae or ground up vegetables. It provides for growth and increased coloration, by providing proteins, naturally occuring lipids, including important omega fatty acids EPA and DHA, and a wide range of vitamins. It also contains chlorophyll, carotenoids, astaxanthin, zeaxanthin and canthaxanthin for coloration. Phyto•Blast does not require refrigeration, but refrigeration will prolong shelf life.

Use in Aquarium Keeping:
Phyto•Blast is useful for feeding hard and soft corals, sponges, filter feeding worms, tunicates and clams of all types. It is particularly suited for those that feed on microplankton. It is recommended that you turn off your protein skimmer and other filtration for 15 to 30 minutes prior to adding the Phyto•Blast to the aquarium. Be careful when feeding liquid foods, not to overload the system. It is recommended that you not add more than the recommended dosage of any food per day. Continuum recommends that the hobbyist vary the types and sizes of foods delivered into the reef aquarium. Other Continuum foods that make good choices for this food rotation include Coral Exponential, Micro•Blast, Zoo•Blast and Ocean Snow. Also, occasionallly blending the foods and using them as soaks for other foods will give your invertebrates a variety simulating nature. Vary the time of day for feeding, as well, being sure to feed at night for those organisms that primarily feed nocturnally. Many corals feed primarily at night, extending their tentacles and mesentarial filaments, using their nematocysts to capture prey, and entraping prey on their sticky tentacles with mucus and drawing it into their mouths.

Directions:
Shake well prior to use. Add 1 capful (5 ml) per 50 US-gallons (200 L) of marine aquarium water 2 to 3 times per week, in an area of high flow.

Expert Use:
Target feeding is the best method of addition. Use a turkey baster, pipette, or similar tool to release upstream of animals to be fed. Do not touch corals with tool. Do not insert tool into this bottle, particularly do not allow aquarium water to enter the bottle, to do so will introduce bacteria into the product and accelerate its decomposition. Instead, pour appropriate amount of Phyto•Blast into a cup and use the tool in the cup. Feed all that you pour and do not return any product to the container (again to prevent contamination).

Caution:
Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption. Contains phytoplankton, if ingested drink water. If in eyes flush with water.

Comments: I bought some bivalves (maxima & crocea clams) to add to my existing mixed reef and bought this item to feed them. After three weeks of use everything looks better in my tank color, vigor, etc. Side note my pod’s go crazy after feeding which my Mandarins love!
