Phyto-Feast LIVE
Food for Filter Feeders


From Reed Mariculture, the makers of Instant Algae! The Marine Microalgae and Zooplankton experts!

Reed Mariculure Phyto Feast

 

For tridacnid clams, soft/hard corals, feather dusters, sponges, ascidians, other invertebrates, etc. Phyto-Feast" LIVE is the premium marine microalgae concentrate for marine reef aquarists.  Formulated specifically for feeding filter feeders in marine aquariums and reef systems, it is a wide-spectrum feed that is suitable for almost all reef invertebrates.

 

Phyto-Feast is simply the best, and here are the reasons why:

  • We start with the best algae - the microalgae in Phyto-Feast" are the same ones chosen by fish and invertebrate hatcheries and researchers around the world. For decades researches have assessed a great variety of microalgal species, and they prefer the algae we use in Phyto-Feast: Isochrysis, Pavlova, Tetraselmis, Thalassiosira and Nannochloropsis.
  • Wide nutritional diversity - Phyto-Feast" contains golden-brown, green, yellow-green, blue-green and brown algae. Each alga contributes unique phyto-pigments and nutritional components. Taken together these algae provide the broadest nutritional profile available (omega-3's, sterols, amino acids, pigments, etc.).
  • Experience and commitment- For over ten years Reed Mariculture has supplied researchers and hatcheries with the algal concentrates they need.  We know what works. We have developed a loyal base of customers that includes most of the marine hatcheries in the United States and hundreds of university laboratories and hatcheries in 67 countries around the world. Our staff includes a PhD in phycology with fifteen years of industry experience and two marine biologists, one with a PhD in fisheries and the other with a master's degree in marine zooplankton
  • Quality preparation and handling - Only intact algae can deliver their full nutrition to your animals. Broken cells spill their nutrients and can foul your aquarium. For ten years we have worked to refine our harvesting, handling and storage processes to provide the best algae concentrates possible. To this end we harvest live, prepare live and bottle live algae. Our algae are induced to become quiescent (hibernating), stopping nearly all metabolic processes and in this way maintain the nutritional value of the algae for many months. Many cells in our paste will remain alive for weeks or months, and those that cease metabolic activity remain with their cell membranes intact and with their full nutritional value.
  • Value that you can see - At  9.3% biomass, Phyto-Feast" is by far the most concentrated algal feed of its kind. You see the value as the thick paste spreads throughout your aquarium. You see it when your animal open up to feed and you see the value as the vitality and diversity of animals in you system improve. Phyto-Feast " contains 500 quarts of dense algae culture, concentrated into a 6 oz bottle, 1300 quarts in a 16 oz bottle.
