Clear editor. >> Gently shake or invert the culture before dosing.  You can broadcast feed your tank, or target feed specific specimens with the help of a clean syringe, pipette, or eye dropper.  I suggest target feeding any livestock that requires phytoplankton.  This can be done by releasing the phyto a couple of inches upstream from the target.  Avoid contaminating the culture with aquarium water (pour some phyto into another container if you are target feeding multiple specimens). I leave the light on 24/7, but 16 hours a day would be adequate. Fluorescent lights seem to perfectly suit phytoplankton, but it may well be that Plasma or LED lighting is even better. Use (clean) empty water bottles to store harvested phyto in a refrigerator.  Label them with a date so that you know how old they are, and that nobody mistakes them for something else.  At least once a week, gently shake or invert the cultures several times to prevent settling.  You can keep phyto in the refrigerator for up to a month; although fresh phyto provides the best nutrition. Lighting I originally used compact florescent work lights, but I had one melt down and nearly cause a fire; so I switched to a plastic clamp on light with a standard 75W equivalent LED light bulb (daylight spectrum). Phytoplankton Culture for Aquaculture Feed VI PR Southern regional aquaculture center Table 1: Cell volume, organic weight, and gross lipid content of some commonly cultured phytoplankton species used in bivalve mollusc and fish hatcheries (Helm et al., 2004). A disposable culture bag is placed inside the reactor. What items do I need to provide? 2008-10-23T08:54:23-04:00 Most commonly, hobbyists use one or more clear plastic 2 liter bottles to culture microalgae.  I'm currently using two 1 gallon Hawaiian Punch jugs.  Simply drill a hole in the cap for the airline tubing, with a little room for air to escape (to avoid a build up of air pressure which could affect air flow).  I used a 1/4” bit, which seems to work fine.  I have read where people have used floss to cover open gaps; but with a 1/4" hole, this really isn't necessary. Is selected to grow well in lab. Some people will start a phytoplankton culture with the intention of dosing directly into their aquarium. What do you think I could do differently to get the same growth others have? /Pages 5 0 R 3 0 obj With some 10,000 to 20,000 different species in the world’s oceans, the diversity of phytoplankton (phyto from the Greek for plant) species is extremely rich. Started 23 hours ago, By Plus, you don't want to use incandescent light bulbs for lighting, as they may heat the culture too much. �N � I drain some off every three days or so, and add new water about once a week. But I’m not sure if I’m not feeding them right or not swapping out containers like I should or just what, to achieve a strong uber green growth. Live Cultures & Bacteria Additives & Chemicals See All. When starting a new culture, or splitting an existing culture (for each 2 liter bottle), I'll add 1ml of Micro Algae Grow (Guillard f/2 formulation) from Florida Aqua Farms, and around 0.5ml of Kent Essential Elements.  I recommend using Micro Algae Grow, but if just culturing phyto to raise rotifers, Miracle-Gro Liquid All Purpose Plant Food can be substituted.  I confesss that I have occasionally dosed my tanks with phyto fed with Miracle-Gro before. �&�Eb�K�l8r���N��˝c���V� fF��~��U�5Ґ���w ��f��OuW�aU��n*�c�5r�R͉�\ǐ�R��T��SH� AlgaGen states that Nannochloropsis, “is also known to be a great water conditioner” consuming and binding nitrate, phosphate, and heavy metals. Â, Today, after reading around more, I decided to get new containers, and split each culture in half, adding new water and more guillards to them. FREE Shipping.
