What is phytoplankton?
Phytoplankton, also called microalgae, is a mix of small primitive aquatic plants which can be found in ocean, just like tiny seaweeds. Most of them float freely and are on the base of the food chain of larger animals.
What are this product main ingredients?
This product as only one ingredient: freeze-dried Nannochloropsis at freeze-dried state.
No additives nor preservatives have been added to product.
This is a small size green microalga (2-4µm). Just perfect for rotifers and “Green Water” technique! Nannochloropsis presents a unique biochemical composition and it is ideally sized for rotifers.
Source of ω-3/ω-6 fatty acids and others essential fatty acids, with a premium vitamins profile: C, E B1 and B12. Great source of antioxidants, amino acids and pigments.
Do you want to know more about rotifers?
Rotifers are microscopic animals which belong to Rotifera class - zooplankton. They are funny-looking creatures, with cilia shaped like a wheel around the head end of the organism. These cilia are small appendices that are always moving, creating water currents and promoting navigation and feeding.
Rotifers can be maintain at home, but require much expertize. These animals are really gluttons and need to always have available microalgae to be healthy. They are also really messy, and water can became dirty really quick. To prevent any culture crash, you should siphon the bottom, change at least 10% of total water volume every day and replace it with new water and feed. When in optimal growth conditions, rotifers can reach adult stage in 4 days.
How can I calculate the PhytoBloom Rotifer Boost Feed dosage I need?
Why should I feed my Rotifer population with this?
Active feeding is the key for colourful and healthy animals, but sometimes commercial food lacks essential nutrients.
Solution lies in enriching vectors, like Rotifers, to get the job done. Marine microalgae are the best diet for rotifers, but that doesn't mean you have to waste time producing your own, because now you have an easy to use and highly nutritive feed available.
What is freeze-drying?
Freeze-drying is a dehydration process typically applied in food industry, like instant coffee or powdered milk. Process extends product’s shelf-life. Process of freeze-drying works as follows: a strong vacuum will force water from frozen phytoplankton to turn from ice directly into vapor, allowing full dehydration of product while biochemical composition remains unaltered.
Powdered formula of pure green Nannochloropsis (small size). Source of ω-3/ω-6 fatty acids (EPA, ARA, ALA), vitamins, amino acids, minerals and pigments. Nannochloropsis is just perfect for rotifers and “Green Water” technique.
