Zooplanktos-M is an ideal formula for your stony corals, sponges, clams, tunicates, tube worms, larval crustaceans and juvenile fishes. A combination of zooplankton and eggs in sizes from 500-1000 micrometers gives your filter feeders omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and carotenoids. May be stored at room temperature. Chris Brightwell uses his expertise as a world renowned marine biologist to develop all Brightwell products.
Specifications Aquarium Type MARINE AND REEF
Instructions Shake product well before using. Turn protein skimmer and other forms of mechanical filtration off prior to adding food suspensions to aquaria, and allow 10 - 15 minutes after feeding before resuming operation of filtration.
Target Feeding (recommended): Target feeding may be carried out with a lengthy piece of rigid air tubing, plastic syringe, pipette, dropper, or similar device; pour 5 ml (1 capful) into a small container and suck a portion of this into the feeding device, then slowly discharge the contents of the device 2 - 4� upstream of the target organism(s). Repeat these steps as deemed necessary. Rinse the portion (inside and outside) of the feeder that was placed into aquarium water before placing it into this bottle (if feeding directly from the bottle rather than from a separate container); failure to do so will contaminate the product and encourage it to decompose.
Broadcast Feeding: Add up to 5 ml per 50 gallons of water in the entire aquarium system in an area of rapid water movement daily for the first four weeks of use; thereafter, the dosage may be increased as desired.
Notes: Add no more than 5 ml total of liquid food suspensions per 50 gallons of water in the entire aquarium system daily for the first 4 weeks of use; thereafter, the dosage may be gradually increased as desired. Starting out at a low dosage and gradually increasing it with time will allow the biological filtration in the aquarium to adjust to the increase in nutrients and prevent water quality from deteriorating.
Planktonic food suspensions (such as this one) are best utilized by target feeding specific invertebrates in an aquarium; in doing so, the majority of the food may be consumed by the intended organisms rather than ending up in filtration media or indirectly impacting water quality (as often occurs when indescriminately �broadcast feeding� by adding liquid food suspensions to a stream of water and allowing the contents to disperse randomly throughout the aquarium system).
Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption.
