Pre-Set a mixed diet of four marine microalgae that all have demonstrated success with a variety of shellfish including oysters, clams, mussels, and scallops. A mixed diet provides a much better nutritional profile for shellfish, increasing both growth rates and survival. This diet is recommended for any shellfish that are 200 microns and below. Pre-Set 1800 will replace the equivalent of 1,800 liters of dense live algae culture.
Nannochloropsis a small green algae that is extensively used in the aquaculture industry for growing small zooplankton such as rotifers and for Greenwater. It is also used in reef tanks for feeding corals and other filter feeders.
Tetraselmis a large green flagellate with a very high lipid level. It also contains natural amino acids that stimulate feeding in marine animals. It is an excellent feed for larval shrimp.
Isochrysis a small golden/brown flagellate that is very commonly used in the aquaculture industry. It is high in DHA and often used to enrich zooplankton such as rotifers or artemia. Isochrysis is a primary algae used in shellfish hatcheries and used in some shrimp hatcheries.
Pavlova a small golden/brown flagellate that is very similar to Isochrysis. Pavlova is very difficult to grow so it is not used any many hatcheries.
Thalassiosira weissflogii a large diatom (10-20Ám x 8-15Ám) that is used in the shrimp and shellfish larviculture industry. This algae is considered by several hatcheries to be the single best algae for larval shrimp. The large cell size (16 X the biomass of Chaetoceros and 3 X the biomass of Tetraselmis) extends the algae feeding period until the end of the PL stage. During the winter this algae is about 15 microns, but shrinks to about 8 microns during the summer.
