PhytoTank-L Kit (3.5 Liter Capacity)
PhytoTank (patent pending) is the hassle-free phytoplankton culture system. The integrated LED light provides uniform lighting for maximal growth and obviates the need for space-consuming banks of fluorescent lights. Cultures take place in disposable culture bags and our durable rubber cap has bulkheads for disposable aeration and vent tubes. So, there is no need to extensively clean or disinfect your PhytoTank between cultures. Simply throw out the disposable items and start your next culture. With the PhytoTank you can harvest your phyto and start a new culture in 10 minutes!

Important Information about selecting starter cultures:
Nannochloropsis Oculata: Bright green Nano is hardy and easy to grow. It can be refrigerated for up to 90 days and still effectively start a new culture. After 90 days, refrigerated Nano may not start a new culture, but it is still nutritious for coral and zooplankton for up to five months.
Isochrysis Galbana: Golden brown Iso is often cited as particularly nutritious for bivalves. However, it is more difficult to culture than Nano and more prone to crashing. In addition, Iso is significantly less stable than Nano during refrigerated storage. Consequently, we recommend starting Iso cultures immediately upon receipt. Furthermore, since refrigerated Iso is less likely to start a new culture we recommend keeping a continuous Iso culture going to avoid having to rely on refrigerated Iso starter cultures.
Aeration: Vigorous aeration promotes dense cultures and prevents
aggregation and settling of phytoplankton.
We provide Tetra Whisper air pumps as an Add On and we will
provide the appropriate air filter and valve assembly based on the number of
PhytoTanks you order.
1-2 PhytoTank-L: Whisper 20
3-4 PhytoTank-L: Whisper 40

The PhytoTank LED system is NOT WATERPROOF. Do not submerge your PhytoTank. Proper use of the disposable culture bags will help prevent contamination. If cleaning is needed wipe the PhytoTank with a damp cloth. As with all electrical aquarium equipment keep the power supply and power cords away from water. Create a drip loop with your power cord to prevent water from contacting the electronics.
Our PhytoTank Guarantee: The LED system should last 50,000 hours. If it the lighting system fails, we will replace your PhytoTank.
