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 has only one ingredient: microalgae Tetraselmis at freeze-dried state.
No additives nor preservatives have been added to product.
This is a medium size green microalga (4-8µm). Perfect for filter feeders, just like Artemia! Artemia, also called brine shrimp or baby shrimp, are filter feeders that use their appendages to funnel nutrients. Despite not being picky with their food, Artemia needs to devour algae of medium size with soft cell wall to get the most nutrients out of it – just like Tetraselmis!
Do you want to know more about Artemia?
Artemia, or brine shrimp, is a small crustacean that can be found in natural zooplankton. Brine shrimp is widely commercialized and can be hatched at home, since it comes in cysts - tiny dormant eggs - with a large shelf-life.
When put in saltwater with air, cyst will hatch in 24 to 48h and you will have a brine shrimp culture. Hatching rates vary with salinity, light availability, artemia strain, cysts age and temperature.
Brine shrimp need a clean environment to grow, so, daily, siphon the bottom and remove around 10% of the total volume. Replace that 10% with new saltwater and feed. In order to grown them correctly, you also should provide them with the best feed possible, and daily. As they grow and develop, brine shrimp go through up to 17 different stages. Each stage is separated from the next by a molt. Molting involves growing a new larger exoskeleton and shedding the old one. When in optimal growth conditions, brine shrimp can reach adult stage in 8 days.
How can I calculate the PhytoBloom Artemia Feed dosage I need?
Why should I feed my Artemia population with PhytoBloom Artemia Feed?
Active feeding is the key for colorful and healthy animals, but sometimes commercial feeds lack essential nutrients.
Solution lies in enriching vectors like Artemia to get the job done. Artemia are non-selective filter feeders which naturally feed on small biological particles – like phytoplankton. So, why do you still feed your artemia culture with artificial feeds, when you have an easy to use, bio-secured and highly nutritive feed available?
Does this help my aquarium?
Enriched Artemia is a source of vitamins, pigments and essential fatty acids for all your tank community and is often essential for marine fish breeding. Besides... They just love it!
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 phytoplankton Tetraselmis (medium size). Source of ω-3/ω-6 fatty acids (EPA, ARA, ALA), vitamins (A, B1, B2, B6, C, E), amino acids, minerals and pigments. Easy to use, bio-secured and highly nutritious natural feed for brine shrimp. Natural and easy-to-use feed, bio-secured and highly nutritional for brine shrimp.
