Phytoplankton for Filter Feeding Invertebrates
KENT MARINE PHYTOMAX is
a concentrated suspension of Nannochloropsis, Tahitian Isochrysis, and Tetraselmis
phytoplankton from 2 to 15 microns (1 billion cells per drop). Rich in EPA, DHA and amino
acids for maximum benefit to marine invertebrates.
Shake well before using. Add 1 drop per 50 gallons of aquarium water every other day in an
area of high water flow. Observe reaction of aquarium residents over 8 weeks and adjust dosage
accordingly. 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
KENT Marine PhytoMax provides whole, unicellular phytoplankton for a broad range of filter-
feeding invertebrates. Ideal for feeding SPS corals, sponges, clams, scallops, bryozoans,
tunicates, sea fans, filter-feeding sea cucumbers, and many annelid worms such as feather
dusters and Christmas tree worms.
Using this product in conjunction with KENT Marine ChromaMax and KENT Marine ZooMax to provide
the nutrient variety available in their natural habitat.
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.
