Question on Phytoplankton 'fertilizer'

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Am looking for the Micro Algae Grower for culturing Phytoplankton but was not able to find it at Reborn (the last time I bought it from there). Wonder anyone here know where to get it?

Wonder if there is any replacement for Micro Algae Grower?

Am thinking of using those Live Plankton sold at Pasir Ris fish farm as the starting culture - wonder if this is viable or are they just dead cells?

Any one willing to sell some starting culture?

I stopped culturing phytoplankton for a while and all my previous cultures are no longer viable... :blink: am thinking of restarting my own culture... :lol:

Regards...

Raiden

I have previously bought my culture disc from "florida farm" but then I do find the live phytoplankton you buy from LFS equally good.Theres a lot of information free off the internet if you google it---(maybe you will find relevant info from my previos posts on this subject) I have since stopped my culture due to lack of time maintaining it...also cannot resolve the phostphates issues from the fertilizers I was using (initially the plankton growth formula from florida farm, then "miracle grow" brand....

aiyo...no need la...what culture disc and stuffs.u can get those phytoplankton dry around and use that to culture. the only thing is that u need more work.

u can get those bottled ones from LFS also but if u are seriously thinking of culturing ur own and raising it...then go for the dry ones.. :lol: or else known as starter...

u can get plenty around. just need to go search. if really cannot find, then contact me. see when i am free, bring u go find. :lol:

nitrate and phosphate prob cannot avoid one. becos plankton is a form of microalgae and they need these nutrients too. i dun really support idea of using farming and planting fertilisers due to the fact that they contains alot of metals for these plants.

u will be seriously polluting the water. instead, just use trace elements and vitamins for these plankton. when they consumed ur vitamins, ur fishes will get them when u feed ur fishes with planktons.

u can feed them with yeast too but yeast is not nutritional. :lol:
