Description

PHYTOPLANKTON CULTURING KIT

This Phytoplankton Culturing Kit is perfect for anyone starting their own phytoplankton culture in their home. Included in each Kit:

* One 16oz bottle of very dense Nannochloropsis Phytoplankton - cultured from our very own petri dishes to assure that each culture is species-specific and contains the highest density count obtainable. This phytoplankton has been cultured using Hydro Algal Fertilizer, and RO/DI water mixed with Instant Ocean salt at a specific gravity of 1.018.
* One 4oz bottle of Hydro Algal Fertilizer as the culture growth medium. This fertilizer adheres to the Guillard f/2 formula, the gold-standard in the aquaria hobby. Contains vitamins B12, Thiamin, and Biotin to ensure a proper balance for maximum health. Other ingredients include: Cupric Sulfate, Zinc Sulfate, Cobalt Chloride, Sodium Ferric Ethylendiaminetetraacetate (EDTA), Manganese Chloride, Sodium Nitrate, and Sodium Phosphate. Contains no Silica.
* Two 3ml pipettes to administer fertilizer, feed tank occupants, etc.
* Two 3/16" rigid air tubes, approximately 14" each - perfect for use with 2L bottles.
* Approximately 10 feet of flexible air tubing - 3/16" ID, 1/4" OD. Tubing is perfect for use with included rigid air tubes, and most (if not all) aquarium air pumps.
* Includes common sense, written instructions on starting your own culture.

Storage -
Phytoplankton: To extend the viability of the phytoplankton contents past the 7-day growth cycle, remember to open each container (to assure gas exchange after shipping) immediately upon receipt, refrigerate contents, and invert bottle once daily (do not shake). In this manner, unused contents should retain potency for up to 30 days. Phytoplankton to be used as an inoculant should be used within 7 days of receipt, to assure maximum density. Filtering during the bottling process assures you’re adding the highest level of purity to your livestock and saltwater.

Hydro Algal Fertilizer: Keep unused fertilizer in cool, dark place for up to two years. Shake well before use.

Warning: Not recommended for human consumption.
