PhytoPlan 1 oz
another great supplementary reef food
Use very, very little! PhytoPlan is "soup" to feed your corals and tiny crusteanans. I use this once a week to feed my mixed 25 gallon cube tank stocked with LPS, SPS, fish and inverts.
It will could your water, but thats ok since your "soup feeding". Make sure to turn of mechanical and skimmer for a couple of hours.

Good Quality Food
PhytoPlan is a good alternative to live phytoplankton. It's good quality and it will last you a long time despite coming in a 1oz container. It can be used straight from the fridge, mixed in a cup, or dosed in the aquarium over time. The corals, fish, and snails all eat this stuff.
Use with caution. It takes a long time to mix and has to be mixed completely before using or it will clump. Do not follow the service size on the package. I used two scoops in my 150 gallon reef and there was so much uneatten that it raised my phosphates through the roof and cause a cyanobacteria outbreak.

I love this stuff. You do have to mix it which is a negitive to some people. I hate the thought of what is in the premixed stuff. So i just mix this with some tank water and spot feed! My coral love it my brain opens its polyps and just devours it all. I keep my refrigerated as it takes up almost no room anyway. Keeps it cool and dry.
My only CON is that they done have a bigger size 1 OZ can go pretty fast. I with they had a 10 oz or somthing.
