New Premium Reef Blend!

Containing live:
Nannochloropsis aculata, Phaeodactylum tricornutum, Chlorella 2-20 Microns

The primary reason to use phytoplankton with stony corals, is to increase the population of zooplankton for the corals to prey on.

Phaeodactylum tricornutum is a large and very nutritious pelagic diatom that contains many essential fatty acids. Adding Phaeodactylum tricornutum makes Premium Reef Blend an even more accessible and nutritious food for clams, gorgonians, some soft corals, copecods and other fauna that feed on diatoms.

Phaeodactylum is not a nuisance species that will harm corals, if it grows on the glass it can be wiped off. There are thousands of species of diatoms and most will not be a nuisance in the event that they grow in the aquarium.

It is a very rare trait for any phytoplankton to survive refrigerated storage for an extended preiod of time. DT`s Plankton Farm uses no preservatives or additives and will only package phytoplankton that remains live and nutritious through the "best if used by" date stated on the package.
