This COMBO package combines two of our most popular products, frequently bought together. Copepods and MicroMagic (phytoplankton), complement each other and are a great start to using live foods over dried foods. They are also excellent for seeding a new tank and a great addition to mature your tank more efficiently.
Copepods are a highly nutritious feed for your fish, full of fatty acids, and are fun and easy for your fish to consume. To find out which type of copepod is best for your fish species, click here.
Why MicroMagic (Phytoplankton)?
Phytoplankton is a highly nutritious blend of 5 live microalgae species that is suitable for most reef invertebrates. The new and improved formula of this wide spectrum feed offers a broad particle size range (1-35 microns) and a complete Omega-3 profile, to cater for most filter-feeders through all developmental stages.
Why is phytoplankton important?
Phytoplankton along with algae are primary producers in the aquatic ecosystems and are the foundation of the aquatic food chain. By using energy from sunlight, they convert dissolved inorganic nutrients such as nitrates, phosphates, and sulfur into proteins, fats, and carbohydrates and are then eaten by primary consumers like zooplankton, small fish, shellfish and crustaceans. These in turn are fed on by secondary consumers, and so on. Therefore microalgae are the ultimate source of food and energy for other organisms in aquatic ecosystems.
