@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?

Phytoplankton is really coming in strong. Our pods are clearing phyto from their cultures almost faster than I can add it. This indicates dense populations and healthy pods. We are set and ready to ship this week in the cold. Insulated boxes, heat packs and we are ready.

KICKING OFF OUR THANKSGIVING SALES!!

While supplies last we are having a

SCRATCH AND DENT SALE
What???
A couple of weeks before my surgery I got a commitment from my favorite LFS to stock our products. I bought a mini fridge and loaded up a ton of Pods and Phyto with the understanding that I would replenish whenever they sold out or replace if the product sat too long. Long story short, it was more successful than the owner realized but he didn’t have time to respond to me and so we decided to pick up the product. In the larger bottles there were live pods after 6 weeks (definitely not as many as started (not even close) but enough to strain and treat our tanks to a snack. The bottles we used got scuffed during transport to and from, so @Ocean_Queenie refused to let me reuse them. Not wanting to just waste them here is the deal. We have 10 - 1/2 gallon containers, 30 - 32 Oz containers and 6 - 16 Oz containers so we are going to pair them up
WHILE SUPPLIES LAST and sell Titanic Pod Buffet and Phyto Buffet 2 packs one of each at a huge discount. Starting with:
3 - 16 Oz pack Reg $54 now
$39.
15 - 32 Oz pack Reg $94 now $69.
5 - 64 Oz pack Reg $159 now $119.

All bottles have been cleaned and sterilized, they are just lightly scratched up.

Shop now, while they last
