RED AlgaMac feeding protocols for Rotifers and Artemia are
applied based on two different methodologies:
Rotifers feeding application is based on applying a
specific number of grams per million rotifers per day.
Artemia feeding application is based on applying a
specific number of grams to a volume (m3) of water containing X number of
||Application: 90 grams Red AlgaMac powder (emulsified)
per billion (1,000,000,000) rotifers per cubic meter applied in two
45 gram applications; one at the start and a second application
after 4 hours. Rotifer density may be 1,000,000 rotifers (or more)
per liter of seawater during enrichment
Total enrichment time: 6-8 hours at water temperature 25-30°C.
Aerate vigorously so that oxygen levels >4.0 ppm (mg/l) during the 8
hours of enrichment. Harvest and rinse enriched
Mix measured amount of AlgaMac-3050 with either fresh or saltwater
in electric blender for 1-2 minutes or until completely emulsified.
Flake particles break down into individual cells (6-8 microns).
when blending is complete, strain through sub-80 micron mesh to
eliminate any foam.
Application: Artemia density may be 500,000 nauplii
(or more) per liter of water or 500 million naup/m³. Add the
prepared Red AlgaMac mixture to the enrichment tank in two
applications each at a rate of 175 grams/m³ (500,000,000 naup/m³).
Aerate enrichment tank vigorously so that oxygen levels >4 ppm
(mg/l) during the 24 hours of enrichment at water temperature
25-30°C. Harvest and rinse enriched Artemia nauplii after 24 hours.
