Kent Marine Phytoplex is a highly concentrated complex of aquacultured,
naturally occurring 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 hard &
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 rotifers 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 8 oz. 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. Shipping
