Kent Marine PhytoPlex
16 fl oz/473mL
Aqua-cultured, naturally-occurring phytoplankton that provides necessary proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids for a broad range of filter-feeding marine invertebrates.
Containing Nannochloropsis, Tetraselmis and Isochrysis sp. Tahitian phytoplankton ranging in size from 2 to 15 microns.
Shake well before using! Add 5 to 10 ml (1 to 2 tsp) per 50 gallons aquarium water in an area of high water flow, or by target feeding (recommended). Feed up to 3 times per week depending on animal load. In heavily stocked reef aquariums, the dosage may need to be increased. As with any food, overfeeding can affect water quality.
Does not require refrigeration or freezing after opening, however refrigerating will prolong useful life.
Target feeding individual animals is the most efficient method. Using a KENT Marine SeaSquirt, dispense food where it will flow over animal.
KENT Marine PhytoPlex provides whole, unicellular phytoplankton for a broad range of filter-feeding invertebrates. Ideal for feeding SPS corals, sponges, clams, scallops, bryozoans, tunicates, sea fans, filter-feeding sea cucumbers, and many annelid worms such as feather dusters and Christmas tree worms.
For best results, alternate use with KENT Marine ChromaPlex, KENT Marine MicroVert, and KENT Marine Coral Accel to provide the nutrient variety readily available in their natural habitat.
