Kent Marine
PhytoPlex
  • Useful for SPS & soft coral propagation
  • Provides proteins, carbohydrates & lipids
  • Highly concentrated
  • Excellent for target feeding
    Tech Notes
    Shake well immediately before use. Important: Invertebrate foods should be used sparingly in a marine aquarium, to prevent loss of water quality! Add 1 to 3 drops per gallon of aquarium water, up to 3 times a week (this is equal to 1/2 to 1-1/2 teaspoons or capfuls in a 55 gallon aquarium) (Tip: Nitrite testing will warn of overdosing.) Although this product can be added directly to aquarium water, target feeding using a plastic syringe has been shown to be the most efficient method. It also results in less pollution. When target feeding, let the food flow over the animal and do not touch the animal with the syringe. Do not contaminate this product with aquarium water by inserting syringe into this container!
    Description
    Kent Phytoplex is a highly concentrated complex of aqua cultured, naturally occurring marine phytoplankton. It contains Nannochloropsis, Tetraselmis and Isochrysis sp. Tahitian ranging in size from 2 to 15 microns. Phytoplex provides necessary proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids for live hard & soft corals, tube worms, clams and other invertebrates. It is rich in the omega-3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA and is useful in feeding rotifers and other plankton and in raising larval fish. Phytoplex is grown in cold saltwater under laboratory conditions. It contains over 3 billion cells per capful and is typically about 15 times as concentrated as competing live cultures, meaning that one 8 oz. bottle of Phytoplex has more phytoplankton cells than 1 gallon of the competition. It is free of viruses, toxins and heavy metals which can be a problem when using live algae cultures, cultured in outdoor ponds. Phytoplex contains Nannochloropsis, a small green flagellate and Tetraselmis, a large green flagellate both containing high EPA lipid levels as well as high protein contents. It also contains Tahitian Isochrysis, a small yellow flagellate which is rich in protein, carbohydrates and DHA lipids. Phytoplex is very useful in SPS and soft coral propagation as well as overall reef maintenance.
