Kent Phytoplex is a highly concentrated
complex of aqua cultured, naturally occuring marine phytoplankton. It contains
Nannochloropsis, Tetraselmis and Isochrysis sp. Tahitian ranging in size from 2
to 15 microns. Phytoplex provides necessary proteins, carbohydrates and lipids
for live and hard and soft corals, tube worms, clams and other invertebrates. It
is rich in the omega 3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA and is useful in feeding
rotifiers and other plankton and in raising larval fish. Phytoplex is grown in
cold saltwater under laboratory conditions. It contains over 3 billion cells per
capful and is typically about 15 times as concentrated as competing live
cultures, meaning that one 8ox bottle of phytoplex has more phytoplankton cells
than 1 gallon of the competition. It is free of viruses, toxins and heavy metals
which can be a problem when using live algae cultures, cultured in outdoor
ponds. Phytoplex contains Nannochloropsis, a small green flagellate and
Tetraselmis, a large green flagellate both containing high EPA lipid levels as
well as high protein contents. It also contains Tahitian Isochrysis, a small
yellow flagellate which is rich in protein, carbohydrates and DHA lipids.
Phytoplex is very useful in SPS and soft coral propagation as well as overall
reef maintenance. Treats up to 4,720 gallons of water.
Provides rich sources of protein and EPA and DHA lipids, contains only natural
species of marine phytoplankton and preserved for a long shelf life of 4 years.
Considerations for Use:
For SPS or soft coral propagation, Kent Phytoplex can be used daily. For best
results, use Coral Accel simultaneously. Keep a close watch on water quality and
do not overfeed! Feed Micro-Vert once weekly in lieu of Coral Accel on that day.
Continue normal regimen of Kent Kalkwasser, Tech CB and Coral-Vite. Kent Marine
Essential Elements should be used simultaneously to replace those minerals lost
to protein skimming and carbon or resin filtration. Tech I Iodine will provide
excellent results.Live corals require strong lighting, with proper spectrum adn
strong water movement in a well established aquarium. Regular water changes with
Kent Sea Salt are encouraged. Use Kent Marine Superbuffer-dKH or new Pro-Buffer
dKH to control alkalinity, prevent swings, and encourage deposition of new coral
Shake well immediately before use. Invertebrate foods should be used sparingly
in a marine aquarium, to prevent loss of water quality! Add 1 to 2 teaspoons per
50 gallons ( 1 capful from 8 to 16 oz bottle, or 5 ml + 1 teaspoon) in an area
of high water flow. Feed daily or several times weekly, depending on animal
load. (Tip: Nitrite testing will arn of overdosing) Target Method: Individual
animals may be targeted with this product and this is the most effecient method.
It also causes less pollution in the aquarium. To do this, purchase a plastic
syringe at any drug store. Fill the syringe with Kent Phytoplex and dispense, as
necessary where the product will flow over the animal. Do not touch the animal
with the syringe.Do not contaminate this product with aquarium water by
inserting syringe into this container!
