Phyto Culturing

Recommended Posts

I just started setting up a phyto system to culture phyto and then reef Pods. Anybody else done this yet tell about your system to compare to mine!!

I used three two litre jugs in a 5 gal pail. Put a CFL plant grow light over top and bubble for about 14 days. I use new water, and started my cultures with DT's, I use miracle grow for fertilizer, the stuff with the lowest middle number I could find. Less phosphate, less chance of phos build up in the tank. \

What did you use for a starter culture. I've shut my system down for the summer and would like to start it up again when time permits in the fall. I'd like to get a few different species of plankton.

I bought a bag of live phyto to start with then went from there. Then I'll split cultures and try not to cross contaminate.
