How this reactor works to produce plankton, because it doesn't explained.
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Carlos,
Great question. The reactor just creates a friendly ideal environment that is predator free for the plankton to grow. The cone shape with the light aeration creates a gentle current that prevents settling of both the plankton you are adding as well as the food you are feeding. Then the plankton then reproduce themselves.

What do you need aside from an airpump and light to make this work? Do you get the inital culture or do you have it offered? and where does the CO2 come from do you need to provide that as well?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Bob,
Great questions. Really it depends on what you plan to grow. If your growing phytoplankton then you need a light (I would just get the phytoplankton reactor, which is essentially the same thing with light built in), and air pump. CO2 is easily provided by the air around you so nothing special to do there.
In terms of the critters you plan to culture themselves, those we do not have here but many local fish stores sell live phytoplankton, rotifers, brine shrimp eggs, etc that you can use as a starter culture.
Use the Plankton Reactor from Aqua Medic to cultivate many species of salt and freshwater zooplankton. Under optimal algal nutrition the number of rotifers, specifically Brachionus, will grow exponentially. In a saltwater aquarium, Brachionus is the ideal food for raising many marine fish larvae and invertebrates.
Consider adding the Plankton Light Reactor from Aqua Medic to cultivate micro-algae or phytoplankton to feed the zooplankton.
