MicroMagic Paste is an excellent high density & high quality Australian marine microalgae. These alga’s are grown, harvested and care for at our facility in Victoria, the pastes are made weekly or for our breeders, and hatchery owners we can make qty on-demand. We have all the equipment inhouse to ensure you get the best product and the freshest product on the market. By way of equipment, we have 2 x centrifuges, 1 x production (flow-through) centrifuge, 1 x 120L autoclave, 1 x horizontal flow through laminar bench (clean bench), 1 x horizontal flow through laminar storage cabinet.
MicroMagic Paste can be used for feeding your SPS Corals, Rotifers, Copepods, Amphipods, Isopods, Brine Shrimp, Daphnia Shrimp and many other critters and cultures. The range from very 2um to 8um flagella size makes it easy for all age of cultures to consume for whatever you feed it to.
MicroMagic is a nutritious mixture of four Phytoplankton strains (Nano, Iso, Tet, and Thal) that is great for feeding copepods, corals, clams, and other filter-feeding inverts. MicroMagic is a hand-selected blend of some of the most nutritious Phytoplankton strains available. This is the same blend we use to feed and cultures of Marine Mix Live Copepods, Calanoid Copepods, Red Copepods etc. in our Facility.
What’s In It?
MicroMagic consists of our blend of four Phytoplankton species:
Nannochloropsis oceanica: Non-flagellated Yellow/Green: 1-5 microns
This tiny green alga consumes several nitrogen waste compounds including ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates. As a result, Nano helps if you have an overfeeding problem, if you are adding a new critter to your tank, or if you want to reduce the frequency of water changes.
Tetraselmis suecica: Green Biflagellate: 6-10 microns
With a rich and varied amino/ fatty acid profile, Tetraselmis provides a very nutritional feed for your marine life. Large aquaculture facilities commonly use Tet, due to its highly nutritional makeup.
Isochrysis galbana: Brown Biflagellate: 10-14 microns
This complex brown algae is high in DHA and is also often used to enrich zooplankton such as copepods and brine. Dosing your tank with Isochrysis will also boost zooplankton and copepod levels. It will also help with the development, colouration, and resilience of your marine life. Oysters, clams, mussels, and scallops all love Isochrysis!
Thalassiosira pseudonana: Unflagellated Diatom: 5-32 microns
Thal is the largest strain of phytoplankton we offer. As a beneficial diatom, this alga consumes silicates, restricting the growth of harmful dinoflagellates and silicates. Cycle time is reduced by adding Thal to your tank!
Suggested feeding Directions
Add 5ml per 1.25L (HCS E-Book has more specific dosage information)
- Spot-feed SPS corals and inverts to maximize growth
- All filter feeders will enjoy fresh paste with the additives like others (caking agents, ash, preservatives etc)
- Use with Aquatic Live Food’s live copepods, amphipods, rotifers to establish or maintain a healthy zooplankton population in your tank.
- This will be enjoyed by your clean up crew.
- Store in freezer
- Mix only what you need for 7 days and store mixed in the fridge. (it will be good for 7-10 days)
- Stored frozen will last 2 years
