Phyto-Shots are ideal as they can be posted easily through your letter box if your not home.
Most of the animals on a coral reef are very effective at capturing either zooplankton, phytoplankton or both from the water that passes over them.
Many of these animals can and do capture phytoplankton directly, and the ones that cannot , such as the fishes still take advantage of the nutritional quality of these tiny algae by preying on small animals that do eat them (such as copepods, rotifers and mysids).
A number of essential nutrients provided by marine algae, especially phytoplankton, which cannot be synthesised by animals, and are therefore extremely important components of a healthy diet
• Brighter colored corals
• Faster coral growth
• Greater polyp extension
• Increased number of micro fauna
• Increased zooplankton and copepod populations
• Mysid populations will bloom due to the increase in copepods Nannochloropsis is high in EPA and ARA, but low in DHA.
Nannochloropsis Phytoplankton absorbs undesirable chemicals present in many reef aquariums, such as ammonia, nitrite, nitrates, phosphates, silicates, etc.
