    Hi

    I recently got some of the live cultures from Reef Aquatics and the the rotifers are really going great. I have some of the phyto left, nannochloropsis, and I want to try to culture them too. I have read up on it and apparently you can add some phyto fertilizer and light and culture them. Anybody have an idea where I can get some phyto fertilizer?

    Thanks!

    You should have just ordered from us. We have perfected our fertiliser "blend".

    Maybe you were not aware but we ship our fertilizer blend with our kits.
