    High quality live feed cultures - Buy online

    For over a decade AlgaGen has been leading the way with novel, high quality live feeds that have been used  by professionals and home hobbyists with great success.  We have once again come up with a new idea related to feeding which we believe will result in even more success for the end user. We call it Easy Feed  Packaging™.

    Easy Feed  Packaging™ can be used to manually spot feed or  it can be configured to obtain a drip rate set on a continuous feed.  It can be dripped in the dawn or dusk hours of your tanks cycle to simulate natural feeding activity.  For those of you interested in doing so, an aquarium pump can be fit to the bag via the short port so that a small amount of air keeps the contents of the bag alive and growing.  We are actively working on developing new concepts using this approach and will offer advances as they become available on our website.  We also sell the Easy Feed  Packaging™ by themselves for you to refill, we hope with our products, but other products can be used with these bags as well!

    We know that  in nature, plankton, both phyto- and zooplankton are available at fairly constant and consistent numbers for organisms to feed on.  In captive husbandry there are not many options to create a constant source of food.

    Hatcheries and individuals sometimes create unique solutions to this problem by creating automatic plankton dosing apparatuses.  Some of these  will grow plankton and feed it to the tank, others will just feed it.  They can be expensive and not simple to set up.

    AlgaGen’s new line of LIVE feeds are produced with the highest level of standards and packaged in a way that is simple to use, and mimics food availability the way it is found in nature;  at constant and consistent amounts.  We call it Easy Feed  Packaging™ because it is easy to use, not expensive and yields superior results.

    We offer the highest quality cultures with no fillers, thickeners, dyes, or gels. All orders are packed FRESH the day of shipment to ensure the best results in your aquarium! All of our products are produced in a sterile, fish and coral free system, meaning no chance of diseases or parasites!
     
    PhytoPLASMtm Green is a mixture of 2 green species of microalgae both known for their nutritional goodness as well as attributes that include natural antibiotics and antivirals that are similar to garlic.  The green species we selected vary in size to feed different organisms. We recommend using  PhytoPLASM™  Green  to feed rotifers, brine,  harpacticoid copePODS, amphiPODS, planktivorous corals, featherdusters, zoanthids, and can be used to create “greenwater” for larval care and production.   PhytoPLASM™  Green comes in the Easy Feed  Packaging™ that allows you to drip feed your system for days at a time, or  it can also be stored in the refrigerator and used “manually” to spot feed when desired.  Life span in the refrigerator is upwards of 5 months. Product should be agitated periodically to prevent settling and maintain its shelf life.
     
    PhytoPLASM™  Brown
    Brown is a mixture of 4 brown species of microalgae, all known for their nutritional goodness as well as  attributes that include antivirals and antioxidants.  The brown species used vary in size to feed different organisms.  We recommend using  PhytoPLASM™  Brown to feed calanoid (free swimming) copePODS, amphiPODS, planktivorous corals,  clams, scallops, featherdusters, zoanthids, and much more. PhytoPLASM™  Brown comes in the Easy Feed  Packaging™  that allows you to drip feed your system for days at a time, or  it can also be stored in the refrigerator and used “manually” to spot feed when desired.  Life span in the refrigerator is upwards of 3 months. Product should be agitated periodically to prevent settling and maintain its shelf life.
     
     
    PhytoPLASM™  Zooxanthellae
    Zooxanthellae is a mixture of 2 species of symbiotic microalgae, both known for their nutritional goodness as well as having attributes that include their relationship with corals and clams  positively impacting on their health.  Zooxanthellae generally live inside the tissue of many marine corals and clams.  The essence of the interaction is that the zooxanthellae consume the waste of its  host, and release “sugar” as a byproduct of photosynthesis,  which then feeds its host. We recommend using  PhytoPLASM™  Zooxanthellae to add to a reef tank periodically in order to maintain coral health and vibrancy.

    PhytoPLASM™  Zooxanthellae comes in the Easy Feed  Packaging™ that allows you to drip feed your system for days at a time, or it can also be stored in the refrigerator and used “manually” to spot feed when desired.  Life span in the refrigerator is upwards of  1 month. Product should be agitated periodically to prevent settling and maintain its shelf life.
