    Liquid Life BioPlankton

    Have any of you tried this BioPlankton? Were currently working on a deal to add this to the list of products in our shopping cart. I've heard some great things and will give my personal opinion as soon as I get a chance to try it for myself.



    BioPlankton provides big results in a small bottle

    BioPlankton is a preserved algae feed that meets the needs of the most demanding saltwater aquarist and mariculture professional. Through the dynamic of the marine food web, BioPlankton provides nutrient rich phytoplankton to direct and indirect consumers in the captive marine food web.

    • Key Benefits
    • Highest cell count per milliliter of any retail plankton feed
    • 3 algae species ranging from 2-16 microns to feed a larger range of consumers
    • 12 month freezer storage life


    In the ocean, phytoplankton is one of the smallest particles in the food web. Yet, it is responsible for supporting an incredibly diverse array of species, from the barely visible planktonic feeders to the largest predators.

    Hobbyists seek to grow the diversity of animals found in the coral biome, but our saltwater aquariums are barren of the planktonic food that starts the marine food web. Mariculturists report that the three most important concepts to feeding are:
    • Acceptance and Digestibility
    • Food Diversity
    • Feed Density

    This is really great stuff. I posted a bit more in the ALHRA's Phytoplankton post but I've been using it for several months now. Clams and feather dusters especially seem to love it. A quality product.

    A noob question on this:

    How much of the Bioplankton do you use at each feeding? Do you dilute it down prior to use? Just dump it in the tank or target feed?

    From reading Flame-Angel's site on culturing bioplankon for feeding, I got the impression that one used fairly large volumes to feed a tank. However, the BioPlankton come in a rather small bottle.

    They recommend to use one pump per gallon every other day... not sure how mnay pumps there are in a bottle. Maybe I'll ask the owners of Liquick life to visit us and answer any of the questions we have about the product.
