Nannochloropsis, green, non-motile, 1.5 to 2.5 µm diameter

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.

Nannochloropsis is a genus of alga comprising 6 known species. The genus in the current taxonomic classification was first termed by Hibberd (1981). The species have mostly been known from the marine environment but also occur in fresh and brackish water. At the moment it is mainly used as an energy-rich food source for fish larvae and rotifers.

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.
