Frozen Rotigrow Plus Phytoplankton algae blend

100ml concentrate, supplied in a small bottle.

This is a concentrate and is much more dense than a home algae culture. It is significantly easier, more convenient and, if you consider time as cost, actually a lot cheaper than culturing your own. The cells are not live and cannot start a culture but will last over 6 months if refrigerated. Just 100mls will maintain a culture of Rotifers or Copepods for months.

It is also a fantastic food for you reef tank to maintain pods populations and feed corals.
