EasyBooster 25 Phytoplankton Gel
250ml pouch of concentrated liquid phytoplankton gel
EasyBooster is a suspension in gel form comprised of marine microalgae and marine minerals that can be preserved at room temperature for over 18 months.
Phytoplankton or marine microalgae are microscopic vegetable cells that can be found dispersed in the sea. Phytoplankton is at the base of the food chain in aquatic ecosystems and serves as food for higher organisms like zooplankton, filter feeders and plant-eating corals.
Marine phytoplankton is considered a superfood because it contains vitamins, essential fatty acids (EPA, DHA, ARA, GLA), essential amino acids, proteins, carbohydrates, minerals and bioactive compounds involved in the metabolic activities of all living beings in general, and of marine organisms in particular.
Isochrysis T-ISO (33%) / Nannochloropsis (31%) / Tetraselmis (18%) / Phaeodactylum (18%) The special characteristics of each one of the micro algae in this formula provide an optimum nutritional profile for aquarium animals.
Dosage varies slightly depending on the aquarium’s biological load. Generally, it is established between 8 ml/day (basic or maintenance dose) and 16 ml/day (average-high demand) for an aquarium with a gross volume of 260 gallons.
Instructions for use:
The Easybooster dose should be distributed throughout the day and is not necessary to turn off the skimmer. Easybooster should be used in increasing weekly doses as per the following protocol:
For an aquarium with 260 gallons
- 1st week: 2ml / day
- 2nd week: 4 ml / day
- 3rd week: 6 ml / day
- 4th week: 8 ml / day (basic or maintenance dose).
After the 4th week, you can increase the dose by 2 ml weekly until reaching high levels of zooplankton production to serve as feed for fish, invertebrates and corals. For correct dispersion, Easybooster must be introduced in the aquarium in the area around the pump that produces intense water circulation.
A dosing pump (not included) can be used to add Easybooster 25 automatically to the aquarium.
