PHYTOPLANKTON Nannochloropsis is a beneficial micro algae found
throughout the world’s oceans. This live phytoplankton has been
cultured from a Petri Dish, using Hydro Algal Fertilizer with the
industry-standard Guillard f/2 medium formula for greater density
and longer viability. By culturing directly from a Petri Dish,
you can be assured that you have only Nannochloropsis Oculata,
and not a mixture of various types of microalgae. The genus
Nannochloropsis Oculata is widely accepted as the standard for
reef keeping aquarists to promote the growth and vibrancy of many
corals, invertebrates, and other filter feeder livestock. At
Mercer of Montana, we adhere to the highest standards of sterile
laboratory protocols, to ensure that each bottle of dense,
vitamin rich Phytoplankton is contaminant-free. The salinity of
the phytoplankton you received was cultured at a specific gravity
of 1.020. To inoculate your own phytoplankton culture, combine
phytoplankton with saltwater (1.018-1.020 sg) at an equal rate
(1:1). Add Hydro Algal Fertilizer at a rate of 3.0ml per liter.
Warning: Not recommended for human consumption. Filtering during
the bottling process assures you’re adding the highest level of
purity to your livestock and saltwater. HYDRO ALGAL FERTILIZER
