AlgaGen PhycoPure™ SeaPro is a frozen phytoplankton concentrate that instantly activates and becomes live as soon as it’s added to salt water. The frozen cubes can be added to your aquarium as you need it, and as long as they are kept frozen, they have an incredibly long shelf life.
AlgaGen has been producing this product very successfully for the public aquariums, hatcheries, and institutions for almost 2 years, before releasing this product earlier this year to the hobby.
Phytoplankton for Aquariums
Phytoplankton use photosynthesis, to create oxygen and essential fatty acids that are important to the health of marine organisms. In your aquarium phytoplankton is consumed by corals, clams, or other filter-feeders. If you’re trying to maintain a population of copepods and other zooplankton they will also consume the phytoplankton, which is then eaten by your fish.
PhycoPure™ SeaPro comes in a kit with one 50ml bottle of SeaPro and a tray. To make the cube you first defrost the bottle in your refrigerator, and once thawed, spread the SeaPro into the tray and refreeze the tray immediately.
Freshly made live phytoplankton from SeaPro will keep in the refrigerator for 7-10 days. The new kit allows you to prepare frozen algae cubes, each of which can be thawed to create instant, on-demand live phytoplankton for feeding or culturing.
The frozen phytoplankton kit cost $39.99. [AlgaGen]
