OceanMagik (16 oz) Live Phytoplankton 4 Species Blend - Algae Barn
OceanMagik is a nutritious mixture of four Live Phytoplankton strains (Nano, Iso, Tet, and Thal) that is great for feeding copepods, corals, clams, and other filter-feeding inverts. OceanMagik is a hand-selected blend of the most nutritious Live Phytoplankton strains available. This is the same blend we use to feed and culture our Poseidon's Feast Live Copepods in our Facility. As a Live product , OceanMagik Phytoplankton will actively seek out and consume Nitrates and Phosphates in your aquarium before they can contribute to nuisance algae growth. This means you get less algae, crystal clear water, more copepods and vibrant coral! Continued use of OceanMagik will also stabilize pH.
OceanMagik Live Phytoplankton Blend:
OceanMagik is a unique blend of Four Live Phytoplankton species, specifically selected to provide your corals, Pods, and filter feeders a complete diet of highly nutritious essential fatty acids, proteins, vitamins, amino acids and carotenoids. OceanMagik will continuously feed your corals, clams, copepods, and other filter-feeding invertebrates. It is also designed to improve water quality by out competing nuisance algae for Nitrate and Phosphate. As the Live Phytoplankton in OceanMagik reproduces, it consumes nitrate and phosphate in the aquarium. This rapid growth leaves less of these chemicals available for use by unwanted algae; restricting unwanted algae growth. Only a LIVE product can offer both of these benefits as “dead” products do not reproduce and immediately begin decomposing into Nitrate and Phosphate. OceanMagik is a natural way to balance your tank and it will not cloud your water. Prolonged use of OceanMagik will also stabilize pH.
How to use it:
We recommend starting with a dose of 5ml per 20 gallons of tank water every day for the first 2 weeks. As your pod population increases and your corals become accustomed to feeding on live phytoplankton this dosage can be gradually increased over time until an ideal feeding regimen for your tank is established.
What’s In It?
OceanMagik is a unique blend of the four Live Phytoplankton species described below:
Nannochloropsis gaditana :: Non-flagellated Yellow/Green :: 1 – 5 microns
This tiny green algae consumes several nitrogen waste compounds including ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates. This 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 and zooplankton. Due to its highly nutritional makeup, Tet is commonly used in large aquaculture facilities.
Isochrysis galbana :: Brown Biflagellate :: 10 – 14 microns
This complex brown algae is high in DHA and often used to enrich zooplankton such as copepods and brine. Dosing your tank with Isochrysis will boost zooplankton and copepod levels. It will also help with the development, coloration, and resilience of your marine life. Isochrysis is the most commonly used algae for oysters, clams, mussels, and scallops
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. It has also been shown to reduce cycle time in a new tank.
