Rotifers - Live Zooplankton and Phytoplankton Blend (16 oz)
Rotifers are great for feeding the larvae of fish such as the clownfish. L-Type (Brachionus plicatilis) are larger, while S-type (Brachionus rotundiformis) are smaller, both reproduce very fast both sexually and asexually. Ideal for culturing and general feeding for fry, fish, filter feeders, corals and other critters.
Can tolerate full freshwater, but will not breed in freshwater.
Can be cultured as low as 1.004 salinity.
****Please specify which type of rotifers you would like to receive in the order notes, or you will receive a blend of both, well suited for feeding fish fry.****
Please note: Rotifers should be fed withNannochloropsisalgae. Research indicates that rotifers fedNannochloropsis, which is very high in highly unsaturated fatty acids, provide a far healthier feed for fry than rotifers fed in other ways.
