Kent Marine Phytoplex Concentrated Phytoplankton: 8 oz


Product Description

Kent Phytoplex is a highly concentrated complex of aqua cultured; naturally occurring marine phytoplankton. It contains Nannochloropsis; Tetraselmis and Isochrysis sp. Tahitian ranging in size from 2 to 15 microns. Phytoplex provides necessary proteins; carbohydrates and lipids for live and hard and soft corals; tube worms; clams and other invertebrates. It is rich in the omega 3 fatty acids; DHA and EPA and is useful in feeding rotifers and other plankton and in raising larval fish. Phytoplex is grown in cold saltwater under laboratory conditions. It contains over 3 billion cells per capful and is typically about 15 times as concentrated as competing live cultures; meaning that one 8 oz. bottle of phytoplex has more phytoplankton cells than 1 gallon of the competition. It is free of viruses; toxins and heavy metals which can be a problem when using live algae cultures; cultured in outdoor ponds. Phytoplex contains Nannochloropsis; a small green flagellate and Tetraselmis; a large green flagellate both containing high EPA lipid levels as well as high protein contents. It also contains Tahitian Isochrysis; a small yellow flagellate which is rich in protein; carbohydrates and DHA lipids. Phytoplex is very useful in SPS and soft coral propagation as well as overall reef maintenance. Main Points: Provides rich sources of protein and EPA and DHA lipids; contains only natural species of marine phytoplankton and preserved for a long shelf life of 4 years. Considerations for Use: For SPS or soft coral propagation; Kent Phytoplex can be used daily. For best results; use Coral Accel simultaneously. Keep a close watch on water quality and do not overfeed Feed Micro-Vert once weekly in lieu of Coral Accel on that day. Continue normal regimen of Kent Kalkwasser; Tech CB and Coral-Vite. Kent Marine Essential Elements should be used simultaneously to replace those minerals lost to protein skimming and carbon or resin filtration. Tech I Iodine will provide excellent results. Live corals require strong lighting; with proper spectrum and strong water movement in a well established aquarium. Regular water changes with Kent Sea Salt are encouraged. Use Kent Marine Superbuffer-dKH or new Pro-Buffer dKH to control alkalinity; prevent swings; and encourage deposition of new coral structure. see more...
