Phytoplankton to Enhance Color
KENT MARINE CHROMAPLEX
is a unique blend of aqua-cultured, naturally-occurring phytoplankton
that contains essential fatty and amino acids, fiber, and high levels of carotenoids.
Carotenoids have been shown to increase coloration intensity of blue, green, orange, yellow,
and red tissue pigments in filter-feeding marine invertebrates. May also be used to supplement
and fortify live foods. Particle size from 5 to 25 microns.
Shake well before using! Add 5 to 10 ml (1 to 2 tsp) per 50 gallons aquarium water in an area
of high water flow, or by target feeding (recommended). Feed up to 3 times per week depending
on animal load. In heavily stocked reef aquariums, the dosage may need to be increased. As
with any food, overfeeding can affect water quality.
Does not require refrigeration or freezing after opening, however refrigerating will prolong
Target feeding individual animals is the most efficient method. Using a KENT Marine SeaSquirt,
dispense food where it will flow over animal.
Nutrients provided by phytoplankton enable filter feeders to better utilize fatty and amino
acids. These compounds increase metabolic efficiency, and can enhance immune systems,
coloration, and protect sensitive tissue from exposure to ultraviolet radiation.
For best results, alternate use with KENT Marine PhytoPlex, KENT Marine MicroVert, and KENT
Marine Coral Accel to provide the nutrient variety readily available in their natural
Providing an array of nutritional sources for invertebrates and planktivorous fish is
essential when simulating the natural aquatic environment. In the ocean, corals and other
aquatic life receive nourishment from a number of different sources and can grab the endless
supply of tiny organisms that are floating by. What they choose to eat is really dependent
upon whatever comes to them and what fits inside their proverbial mouths. KENT Marine Coral
Nutrition products provide the necessary variety of plankton, zooplankton, marine lipids,
spirulina and kelp for enhanced health, growth and coloration.
Target-feeding individual animals is the most efficient method to ensure that food will be
consumed by the targeted animal and not end up in the filter or skimmer. Use a KENT Marine
SeaSquirt, to accurately dispense food where it will flow over the animal.
