These algae disks are perfect for setting up new cultures and are ideal for maintaining the purity of the algae, as over time cross contamination can occur. These discs are also useful for breeders who don't wish to maintain cultures throughout the year.

Tetraselmis is a genus of phytoplankton. Tetraselmis has a very high lipid level; their amino acids stimulate feeding in marine organisms. Tetraselmis is green, motile, and usually grows 10 µm long x 14 µm wide.

Cell-Hi F/2 liquid

Cell-Hi F2 is based on Guillard F/2 medium and has exactly the same N, P trace element and vitamin content.

Dose: 1ml for every 2 litres of culture.

The most important aspects in algae growing conditions are nutrient quantity and quality, light, pH, turbulence, salinity and temperature. Concentrations of algae in media are generally much higher than those found in nature, so the media or culture must be enriched with nutrients to boost the seawater in order to support these higher cell densities.
