    Algaebarn is awesome!

    Hello everyone! I wanted to express how happy I am with @AlgaeBarn and their costumer service. I ordered pods and phyto for the first time ever, not just from them but ever in general.

    Phytoplankton Production

    Hey guys, we started a phyto culture and the first batch took 14 days before we could split it. This time it only took 4 days and it looks like we can split it again. Should we let it go longer or do you think we should split it? What it looked like when starting What it looks like right now

    Self Sustaining Pod Culture - I think I accidentally made one?

    A while ago (Oct/Nov of last year; 7-8 months ago) I set up a little pod/phyto culture in a 2.5 gal tank. It's just regular reef tank water, a bubbler with a wooden air stone that I weighed down with a piece of dry rock and the whole thing is lit by a 9 watt 6500k pendant LED for 8-16 hrs a day...

For this reason, and due to the nature of Nanno, it's not quite as dark as other phytoplanktons. This phyto is alive, and it's dense. I'm...

    I'm convinced it is possible and have started a series of experiments to find out that magical combination! So why would you want to do this? Well, Phytoplankton is the base food of the ocean.. it feeds your copepods.. which intern feeds your fish and coral.. Self-sustaining live food? yes...

    Shelf-stable food dosing - is anyone doing this?

    BLUF: What food can I feed via dosing pump? After a quick search around R2R with some keywords I couldn't find much on shelf stable food products for corals/inverts. Let me put this into context, though, of what I am trying to do. I recently switched from the KZ coral system (1-4) to the FM...

    Type of Microscope/Mag level for identifying phyto cultures

    I'd like to get a microscope to check my phytocultures, but not sure which make/model/or even just magnification I should be looking for. If all that's needed is magnification of a certain level then I can go cheap :) thanks Isaac
