Aquatic Live Food is now culturing the super small Marine Rotifers SS Strain (Brachionus rotundiformis). Our culture is clean and the size of the rotifers ranges from 120-180um (microns).
These rotifers are one third the size of newly hatched brine shrimp, giving smaller organisms a chance to feed. Their very small size is very important to breeders and anyone wanting to breed fish.
This is because young fry has a very small mouth gape which makes it very hard to ingest food. Due to this, smaller fry normally die as they are unable to open their mouth wide enough to eat L strain rotifers.
Our live SS rotifers are fed on MicroMagic marine 4 spec phytoplankton. These rotifers also make a perfect feed for your filter feeders, hard corals, soft corals and other reef carnivores.
SS rotifers are critical for marine fish and invertebrate hatcheries around the world. We can ship these live rotifers anywhere throughout Australia via the Toll or Australia Post Express Post network.
If you are living in Tasmania and want to purchase Copepods, Rotifers, Amphipods and Daphnia you will need to complete this form Tasmanian Government interstate wildlife import permit. There is no cost involved its just part of bio-security.

- Using Marine Rotifers SS Strain as live food for home aquariums will provide a very necessary link in the food chain in your aquarium. This, in turn, will allow you to have a more balanced aquarium habitat because you will be introducing microfauna.
- We, as hobbyists, are starting to become aware of the difference between feeding dead food such as frozen and freeze-dried, as opposed to feeding live organisms to our pets.
- It is more beneficial to introduce live organisms and food because they will stay alive and may even reproduce in your system if conditions are right.
Our rotifers can be used to feed most types of corals, newly hatched fish fry and larvae.
They also are great food for clownfish fry, dottyback fry, mandarin fry, seahorse fry, copepods, and amphipods. You will notice an immediate reaction from your corals if they have never been fed live zooplankton in your aquarium.
