MicroMagic Freshwater is a nutritious mixture of four Live Phytoplankton strains (Nano, Iso, Tet, and Thal). It is great for feeding copepods, corals, clams, and other filter-feeding inverts. MicroMagic is a hand-selected blend of the most nutritious Live Phytoplankton strains available. This is the same blend we use to feed our Copepods, Calanoid Copepods, and Red Copepods in our facility. As a Live product, MicroMagic Phytoplankton will actively seek out and consume Nitrates and Phosphates in your aquarium before they can contribute to nuisance algae growth. This means you get fewer algae, crystal clear water, more copepods, and vibrant coral! Continued use of MicroMagic will also stabilize pH.
What’s In It?
MicroMagic Freshwater consists of a proprietary blend of four Live Phytoplankton species:
Nannochloropsis gaditana: Non-flagellated Yellow/Green: 1-5 microns
Nanno is one of the strains in MicroMagic Live Phytoplankton. 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 sp: Green Biflagellate: 6-10 microns
With a rich and varied amino/ fatty acid profile, this strain provides a very nutritional feed for your marine life. Large aquaculture facilities commonly use this, due to its highly nutritional makeup. It is an important strain in our MicroMagic Live Phytoplankton.
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 weissflogii: Unflagellated Diatom: 5-32 microns
Thal is the largest strain of phytoplankton we offer. This alga consumes silicates, restricting the growth of harmful alga and bacteria. Cycle time is reduced by adding Thal to your tank!
Add 5ml per 40L 3-4 times per week for the first week. Increase by 2ml each week for three weeks, and then adjust as needed.
- Spot-feed corals and inverts to maximize growth
- 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.
- Gradually increase MicroMagic dose to accelerate coral growth and increase copepod populations.
- Store in the fridge as it will survive for at least 7-10 days
- Do not freeze.
- Shake bottle periodically to prolong useful life.
