Super Nutritious

Colour Enhancing
Phyto-Feast Live’s brown, green, blue-green, yellow-green and golden algae will enhance the health and the color of your animals.

Long Shelf Life
When stored properly, a bottle of Phyto-Feast Live will provide the same value after 2 months+ as on day. Best By is 3 months.

Use & Storage:

If you have not used Phyto-Feast Live before, start with 1 drop per gallon each day (1 teaspoon per 100 gallons) . Your animals will rapidly become accustomed to the phytoplankton (microalgae) and be able to feed on quite a bit more.

If your animals do not "clear" the water in less than an hour - back off on the amount you are adding because your systems is not fully digesting all the microalgae.

A common dosage for a mature system is 1-5 drops per gallon (1-5 teaspoons per 100 gallons) each day, depending on your tank setup and animal density.

Broadcast Feeding
Simply add the dose to a high flow area of the tank. We recommend turning off your skimmer before adding the algae. Many customers have been successful by putting their skimmer on a vacation timer so it automatically turns back on later in the evening (2 hours is a good window).

Target feeding
Dilute 1 part Phyto-Feast Live to 4 parts tank water. Mix thoroughly. Turn off all pumps to allow the tank to go calm. Using a target feeding device, feed your animals. Wait about 30 minutes and then turn everything back on.

Usage Tips
We recommend turning off your skimmer before adding the algae. Many customers have been successful by putting their skimmer on a vacation timer so it automatically turns back on later in the evening (2 hours is a good window).

Refrigerate (33-42°F / 1-5°C) before and after opening. The best place to store algae is the bottom shelf because that is the coldest place in your refrigerator. The worst place to store it is the refrigerator door which may not be cold enough. Do not store Phyto-Feast in your freezer because freezing will break many of the algae cells.
If you accidentally leave the bottle out overnight in a stable environment where temperatures don’t exceed 75°F / 24°C, then the product will be fine. But, keep in mind that this may shorten the shelf-life, so try to use it up before the Best By date.
