Phytoplankton Culture Kit

Our Nannochloropsis Phytoplankton Culture kit is an easy way to start your own culture at home, keeping a constant supply of fresh phytoplankton flowing for your reef & zooplankton cultures.

What's Included?

How do I culture phytoplankton?

Culturing Instructions are available online here, and don't forget we are on hand to give you all the support you need.

What items do I need to provide?

1. Culture water should be made to a specific gravity of 1.019 The culture water is simply salt water like what you make for your tank. (Do not use the water currently in your tank - use fresh at all times.)

2. Lighting

Fluorescent lights seem to perfectly suit phytoplankton, we use fluorescent tubes that are suitable for planted tropical aquariums. You may choose to use LED's but results may vary.

3. Timer

Use a timer for the light as you will need 16 hours with the culture light on and 8 hours with the light off. If you don't have a timer then we have them in our store available here.

4. Air Pump

Is required, but please select whether you need one with the 2 purchasing options above.
