Everyone goes through tough times financially and when these times come, we, at Aquatic Live Food want to ensure that everyone can continue to pursue their aquarium hobby and enjoy it in their spare time. That’s why we have compiled a short list of tips to help you save throughout the year on all your aquarium goodies…

Culture Your Own
Culturing your own live foods and phytoplankton is a sure-fire way of saving money in the long term. At Aquatic Live Food, we have all the products you need to culture your own live foods at home including copepods, rotifers, daphnia, amphipods, and more! The main product that facilitates this process is the Home Culture System which includes the all the equipment you need to culture live foods, plus, the live foods themselves to start you off!
We also have fantastic Live Algae Culture Kits which are perfect for culturing your own phytoplankton. Many people find that it’s easier to start with culturing phytoplankton and from here, go on to culturing their own live foods too. Our Live Algae Culture Kits are a perfect place to start with culturing phytoplankton as they have all the equipment to get you started including the live algae strain of your choice! We have these kits available in both Marine and Freshwater to suit all kinds of aquariums. We have listed each strain and details about them to help you decide which you would like to culture. You can find these details on the product pages.
Many people ask us if it’s possible to culture the MicroMagic mix, however, unfortunately, it is not. Algae strains are difficult to culture when mixed as they are in this product, so it’s most effective to culture each strain individually, and you can even mix them yourself once you’re ready to use them as a food source for your tank.
Choose a Combo
We have many combo deals available on our website shop which is discounted as a package. These combo deals have been created for products that are commonly purchased together, and therefore, are a convenient way for people to purchase and save money.
Stay Tuned for Sales
At Aquatic Live Food, we try to make buying your goods as practical as possible, so we ensure to have a sale running at least every 1-2 months. By subscribing to our newsletter and keeping up to date on our social channels, you will be able to save anywhere from 10-30% off goods, sometimes even more. Shipping can also be an extra cost, so we have sales that include free shipping too! When sales are on, make sure to stock up on products that you know you will use all year round, to avoid full-price costs later.
