Now available in limited quantity.

4 phytoplankton species blend, $10 per 16 Oz. Fresh harvested daily.

Please bring your own clean jar or I will pack it in clean plastic bags.

It is good for a month in refrigerator. When store in refrigerator, it is best to shake it once a week.

I dose about 2 to 2.5 Oz per 100 gallon of tank volume per day.

Please note: this is pick up in Concord MA only. Shipping can be arranged but with the shipping cost factors in, it is slightly cheaper by just ordering online from Amazon.

Also there is a big difference in effectiveness between live/freshly harvested phytoplankton vs dead phytoplankton.
Phytoplankton can only live about a few days in a sealed bottle at room temperature.

There are several benefits for freshly harvested live phytoplankton:

First, cells are intact, living. Which is a lot nutritious than those dead stuff sitting on shelves at room temperature.

2nd, you wont over dose, you can pour the whole 16 oz in a 75 gallon system in one shot.

3rd, live and growing phyto actually removes waste products from the aquarium water, which dead stuff adds pollution to your tank.

4th, live phytoplankton stays in the water column that filter-feeders can get to it, unlike dead phytoplankton that quickly settle at the bottom.

Understood. Those are good points.
There are several vendors already doing that like algaebarn.

For me, I am never intended to make it an large operation to sell phytoplankton. Since I already culturing it to feed my coral, I just offer it up to cub members.

There is little profit to worth the time and efforts in selling phytoplankton until you can sell it by thousands of bottles per month. Which some online vendors are dedicated to it.

Is there a scale that can be used to calculate different water volumes? When dosing should you shut off your skimmer? Do you need to start off slowly? I know that dosing can cause changes in water pars.
