Hello all

Some great news:

We have received a trial shipment of Phyto2 from the States

Phyto2 is the high quality phytoplankton supplement for the marine aquarium. Featuring multiple species and cell sizes Phyto2 provides the highest nutrient value in a live planktonic food for clams, corals and invertebrates.

What Is Phytoplankton & what does it mean to your aquarium?

Phytoplankton is a free-floating, microscopic plankton that exists naturally in the oceans, lakes, and rivers of the world. Phytoplankton, which are the bottom of the food chain, make up the primary food source for marine corals, claims, and filter feeding invertabrates

What does this mean to you?

In a closed system, such as a home aquarium, food sources are limited to what is added to the tank. Considering the needs of the various life kept in the system, a regular source of food must be added to mimic the constant availability of food in the ocean.
A must for any reef hobbiest!


Why Choose Phyto2? Who Manufactures It?

Phyto2 Phytoplankton is produced by marine biology professionals specifically for the home aquarium. We have taken into consideration the needs of the average home aquarist and produced a product that will provide the longest shelf life at the highest nutritional value for the most reasonable price. Keeping this in mind we are constantly refining our processes to create better and more convenient products. It is our goal to bring you the best quality live planktonic foods at the best prices so you can enjoy your hobby.Other Phytoplankton producers would like to intimidate the laymen with vague threats of unexplainable tank crashes and unexplained terms like cleaning or washing.


Phyto2 is cultured in Sterile nutrient rich seawater. It is grown out to the point where it is at its highest nutritional value and the seawater contains the least amount of nutrients. As such our harvest is already a "clean" Phytoplankton. Next the product is allowed to settle and as much culture water is removed as possible and replaced with Sterile seawater. This eliminates the probability that fertilized culture water can foul your aquarium.

could you feed this directly to marine fry (clownfish, bangii's etc??)
Or simply a great food source for rotifer. I would be interested in collecting plankton at night with a torch and feeding this to them??? What are your opinions?:blush:
