MarineSnow Plankton Diet is a first of its kind product that reproduces the special biogenic suspended matter found in natural seawater, including “marine snow” aggregates.
A food for filter-feeding marine invertebrates that feed on particulate and dissolved organic matter, phytoplankton and zooplankton.
Formula based on components of ocean plankton.
Directions:Refrigerate after opening. Always shake well before dosing. Maintain strong water circulation (particle velocity of approximately 4 inches per second) in aquarium when feeding this product, but discontinue mechanical filtration and protein skimming for an hour after feeding. Add to a strong current stream for rapid distribution in the water. The current will form and break up the snow-like aggregates. Feed at least one capful (5ml) per 20 gallons per feeding. Larger doses can be added by feeding several times per day, or continuously via drip-feed system or peristatic dosing pump. Do not mix with trace elements or other chemical supplements in a dosing reservoir. MarineSnow can be mixed in an aerated dosing reservoir with live phytoplankton, rotifers, or brine shrimp, and is suitable source of food for brine shrimp. Frequent feeding will not cause build up of excess nutrients.
Ingredients:Deionised water, phytoplankton (Nannochloropsis, Tetraselmis or Thalassiosira, Isochrysis, Spirulina, Schyzochitrium), seaweed meal, zooplankton, citric acid.
