Four Live Phytoplankton Species!
If you asked a copepod what it wanted to eat, it would simply say AlgaeBarn's OceanMagik Phytoplankton Blend. Produced with a hand-selected blend of live phytoplankton, OceanMagik will provide your pods with the most nutritious blend of Live Phyto which will help increase reproduction rates and sustainability of copepod and amphipod populations. Phytoplankton consumes nitrogen and phosphates as they grow and will easily reproduce in your home aquarium, and with a sustained population of phytoplankton, you can actually reduce the amount of unwanted algae that grows in your aquarium.
Three Sizes Available:
- 8oz OceanMagik
- 16oz OceanMagik
- 32oz Ocean Magik
- 64oz Ocean Magik
- 128oz Ocean Magik
How To Use OceanMagik
It is suggested to daily dose 5mL of OceanMagik Live Phytoplankton for every 20 gallons of tank water in your system for the first two weeks. That will help your system get used to living Phytoplankton being introduced and after two weeks you can adjust the amount up or down as necessary. We like to dose OceanMagik every day when we feed our fish since it convenient and the small phytoplankton is not actively sought after by the fish. There is no need to acclimate OceanMagik before dosing to your aquarium.
OceanMagik will give the best results if used within 4 weeks and should be stored in a refrigerator that is between 34°F - 40°F.
Four Live Species of Phytoplankton In a Proprietary Blend
Nannochloropsis gaditana (Non-flagellated Yellow/Green 1-5 microns) - These tiny green algae consumes several nitrogen waste compounds including ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates. As a result, Nano helps if you have an overfeeding problem, if you are adding a new critter to your tank, or if you want to reduce the frequency of water changes.
Tetraselmis sp (Green Biflagellate 6-10 microns) - With a rich and varied amino/ fatty acid profile, Tetraselmis provides a very nutritional feed for your marine life. Large aquaculture facilities commonly use Tet, due to its highly nutritional makeup.
Isochrysis galbana (Brown Biflagellate 10-14 microns) - This complex brown algae is high in DHA and is also often used to enrich zooplankton such as copepods and brine. Dosing your tank with Isochrysis will also boost zooplankton and copepod levels. It will also help with the development, coloration, and resilience of your marine life. Oysters, clams, mussels, and scallops all love Isochrysis!
Thalassiosira weissflogii (Unflagellated Diatom 5-32 microns) - Thal is the largest strain of phytoplankton we offer. As a beneficial diatom, this algae consumes silicates, restricting the growth of harmful dinoflagellates and silicates. Cycle time is reduced by adding Thal to your tank!
