Phytoplankton is a good source of nutrition for many coral types; especially non-photosynthetic corals. It is also great for filter-feeding worms, zooplankton (copepods) and bivalves like clams, mussels and scallops. Our Phyto-Feast is used by many hobbyists, stores and professionals in aquaculture. Here is a link to the product page: https://reefnutrition.com/products/phytofeast. We add multiple species to our product to ensure a wide variety of nutrition is available to your animals. We encourage you to buy our products at your LFS if they carry Reef Nutrition products. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out.

Best,
Chad

Interested to know if the Phyto-Feast raises the nutrients in the water.
Will Phyto-Feast Live provide the same value as Phyto-Feast?

All food items have the potential to raise nutrient levels since they naturally contain things like phosphate and nitrogenous compounds. The way you use the food is important. We have conservative dosage information to help you avoid overfeeding. The dose can be increased over time as long as you continue to see water quality parameters at acceptable levels.

Phyto-Feast Live contains live algae which has the ability to utilize phosphate and nitrogenous compounds in the aquarium which can be beneficial to overall water quality. The cells in this product are only alive for roughly 3 months. Phyto-Feast contains non-viable cells (dead algae) which is perfectly fine as a food source for inverts. This product has a shelf-life of up to 9 months and is highly concentrated.

Hope this helps. Please visit our product pages for more information. https://reefnutrition.com/products/phytofeast & https://reefnutrition.com/products/phytofeastlive. I appreciate your question!

Best,
Chad
