    Default Phyto

    I am thinking about starting up some phyto to feed my corals. Does anyone know of a good place I could order my starter culture from? I can't seem to find one that looks reliable.

    I am looking for Isochrysis & Nannochloropsis.


    Thanks!

    I'd go here.. but that is just me

    http://www.algagen.com/ and see their products

    Also, read up on nano and determine if you really need it. From what I've learned, and for my needs, a pure culture of Isochrysis is best.

    I gave it a try but mine crashed. I had big temp swings though. I am going to try again soon and will try and eliminate the temp swings.

    Thanks for the links!

    I am thinking about culturing Isochrysis & Nannochloropsis separately. I'm not going to mix the cultures.
