With our highs exceeding 100 degrees this week I can’t guarantee live arrival with standard shipping. If you still want to order, I can ship in an iced and insulated box for a $10 up charge.

How do I add phyto and pods to my tank? I’m glad you asked. When you new product arrives, place in refrigerator until ready to use.

Remove pods from your fridge and acclimate to aquarium temperature for best results. Add pods to your tank 1-2 hours after lights out with my return pump off, for the best survival rate (avoids a feeding frenzy), this allows them to find a home in the rock work. That is when I dose in my refugium as well, but not as necessary as no fish to immediately attack them.

After dosing pods, it is best to dose the aquarium with phyto daily to ensure they have a ready food source. Yes many will survive in waste and other algae in the tank, but this provides the optimum environment for them.

Dosing Phytoplankton is also hugely beneficial to all of the organisms in your aquarium, whether providing nutrients to pods and corals, live phytoplankton will consume nitrates and phosphates as it continues to grow. Remove phyto from the fridge, shake bottle and measure to dose as per the table below.

The phyto is really rich this week. Think I have the technique down pretty good now (Knock on Wood).

I can still ship some orders on Wednesday as long as I check your address and arrival Friday. Shipped some today that say Thursday so I am happy to check for you.

Just PM me. Shipped out a lot of great orders today. Plankton Buffet is really taking off. Phyto, copepods, and Amphipods, great diversity for every tank.

Harvesting this evening. I try to only harvest what I need for myself and my orders and a little extra for last minute purchases. This keeps my populations super dense. Please place your orders soon so I can accommodate your needs.

FREE SHIPPING OVER $25

Mix and match with my blended pods and Amphipods.

Pods are really going to town on the phyto. Already had to add more since Sundays split.

Guess they just love our phyto buffet!
