Busy busy day. Resetting and making adjustments. Put away everything from shipping days. Deliveries will start arriving today. I am so excited, but probably not as excited as those receiving them lol. Next week looks just as good! Place orders early!

Tonight @Ocean_Queenie is going to set up one of our culturing kit to see if she can be successful by following our instruction sheet. No, she has never cultured anything before. I will answer any questions just as I will for customers, but this is all on her. We think it will be a great experiment. It was her idea. I’m going to give her a challenge and start her with Isochrysis as one of her phytoplanktons. Going to culture Apocyclops. She will be starting with the same starters that we ship our customers.

Check them out here.

@Ocean_Queenie got her cultures going last night. We are experimenting so we can make the best suggestions. She started with a Top Fin air pump designed for a 20 gallon aquarium and it seemed to be enough for both phyto cultures to roil, and small stream of bubbles for pods. However this morning there was no air flow in the second phyto culture so I switched to a 40 gallon recommended Top Fin air pump and will reevaluate later.

Small change, as we were preparing to set up, Sherry asked what the pinkish red phyto was, and so since she loves pink, we switched to Rhodosomas salinas for her second culture. This is the one deprived of air for part of the night last night so we will keep an eye on it. Note that the Rhodo culture is set farther from the lights as it wants to be eased into full light over a few days. Here is what the setup looks like. Sherry is excited and says if she can do it, anybody can.

@Ocean_Queenie is checking her cultures and they are growing. Still a little worried about the Rhodosomas salinas as it didn’t have flow the first night. But it appears to be in suspension so might be OK. Still a day or so before she is supposed to move them closer to the lights.

Last night I sieved and reset one of our pod collections. Tigriopus, Tisbe, and Apocyclops are all ready to go. Awesome density. They are literally mowing through the phyto, hungry pods are healthy pods.

Just a little look at some of them.

So @Ocean_Queenie has had her culture going for 7 day now and it is looking really good. Not quotes done, but with losing air to her Rhodosomas on the first night she is super pleased. Here is what it is looking like now.

IMG_6483.jpeg


Notice the pod water is really light, so she poured a little water through a sieve and man was she impressed with the number of Apocyclops pods she has grown. She added them back and added a little more phyto. And this is what it looks like with the lights on.


IMG_6492.jpeg

Notice how much lighter the phyto looks when lit. You have to turn the lights off to check it as you can see how dark it is in the first picture. She is going to split and restart her phyto when we get back from picking up our daughter from school.

Here is a peek at her pods.

So the debate is on, does @Ocean_Queenie keep her phyto she harvests to dose to a tank? She will have to keep a portion to feed her Apocyclops copepods because she has decided to keep her cultures going. So please give us your vote in the comments!!

Does my wife

A. Sell her phytoplankton?

B. Give it away as a gift with purchase?

C. Use it to dose our Red Sea 350?

D. Evaporate it and make some health/nutrition product?
