Nannochloropsis salina in reef aquaria is an excellent food for plankton culture.
Delivery: 2-4 business days
This algae species has been very popular for many years in scientific questions, as well as in hobby aquaristics. It is a spherical algae species with a cell size of about 2-3 µm. In addition, this microalgae has a balanced nutritional value, which combined with the small cell size, makes it the first choice as food for animal plankton.
As with all plankton cultures, care must be taken to work cleanly, as contamination with other organisms can quickly occur. A contamination often leads to a tilting of the cultures. This phenomenon can occur either insidiously over a few weeks or very surprisingly in just a few days.
Our crops are operated in laboratory quality and with the help of our highly efficient special fertilizer, which allows us to guarantee a very high purity.
Dosinf´g tip: To support the microorganisms in the running tank, add 100 ml / 100 l tank volume daily. It is advisable to switch off the skimmer for 1-2 hours during this time, provided that the remaining water parameters allow this.
When used as a food algae in running zooplankton cultures, such as our Brachionus rotundiformis, add enough algae so that the water always has a light green coloration.
