    I've discovered a unique cap that allows me to more efficiently hatch baby brine shrimp. It is also capable of potentially being used for phytoplankton and zooplankton culturing. I created a turtorial to show how it can be used for a brine shrimp hatchery. I'm going to convert my phytoplankton...

    I think my clam just ate its first spot feeding, I slowly basted it with a mixture of zoo plankton and phytoplankton and as I was doing this it began to open and close a lot. It would open to the extent of the mantel and quickly close, it repeted this throught the feeding. Is this normal...

    So my culture of Isochrysis is finally up and running I was wondering if regular additions would help make some of the harder to keep filter feeders easier to take care of. I am especially thinking about Coco worms, Gorgonians, and Flame Scallops. Maybe even a clam after I upgrade to a bigger tank.

    strangeness, adding greenwater directly to a coral tank i don't know what to think other than a bunch of curiosities. in my head this should be great for SPS coral. i'm thinking total nutrient additions to the tank would be on par with...

    I have a quick question... Can feeding a tank with phytoplankton cause a nitrate and/or phosphate buildup? Or can it fuel an algal bloom? Or any other bad outcomes? I have a reef with all sorts of corals. My dad picked some up and I'm not sure if I should use it or not. I know it's for feeding...
