    I'm looking for a start culture of nannochloropsis .sp & tetraselmis phytoplankton. If anyone can sell me a start culture of both or either I'd appreciate it. I have unfortunately crashed my nannochloropsis .sp culture & need to get it up & running again.
    Thanks in advance
    Michael

    You'll have to import it. I had a friend a while ago wanting to sell the stuff but no takers. If guys do sell you plancton it's probably and deliberately contaminated to prevent guys from starting their own culture otherwise they'll go belly up

    Who on earth would fill your kop with that shit ? I've accidently crashed my nannochloropsis .sp & need a new start culture. When my culture was thriving & anyone who wanted got some with no contamination & always from my mother culture. When I got my start culture I got from his mother culture unfortunately he no longer has any.
    Dude not all reefers are bad & I'm darn sure there are reefers who do have & would be willing to sell me a start culture of either.

    Once again I'm talking about guys who want to make a living out of this who wouldnt want to sell a viable source of phyto, and I'm not saying reefers are bad at all.
