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 2,360 gallons of water.

Main Points:
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 structure.

Instructions:
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!

Active Ingredients:
Nannochloropsis, Tetraselmis and Isochrysis sp. Tahitian. (All aqua cultured, naturally occuring marine phytoplankton).
