This phytoplankton species belongs to the blue-green algae, i.e. to the cyanobacteria, and is often used to combat the often unsightly red cyanobacterial coatings in reef aquaria. So far, no scientific results have been published that prove this effect or its mechanism. In our own small studies we could find out that the addition of this plankton species can indeed lead to a considerable decrease of red cyanobacteria, but it depends individually on the aquarium.
In our opinion, it is definitely worth a try to use this plankton for cyanobacteria control. The successful breeding is very easy with our F/2 special fertilizer. However, we are happy to supply larger quantities of plankton if you do not have time for your own breeding.
Dosing Tip: To combat cyanobacteria deposits, 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.
