Phytoplankton (Micro-algae) cultivation unit
The plankton light reactor is a simple system for producing plankton in a natural food chain. Within the plankton light reactor, micro-algae are produced with light, fertiliser and CO2. The micro-algae can be fed directly to many filter-feeding invertebrates, and especially to zooplankton. The growth rate of the micro-algae in the plankton light reactor is enormous. If the supply of light, CO2 and nutrients is continuous, the biomass of the algae may increase four-fold within 24 hours. Both fresh- and saltwater species of phytoplankton can be cultivated. Contents: plankton light reactor approx. volume 2.5 l (c. 0.65 gal), wall bracket, connections for air pump, lighting unit with fluorescent lamp (18 W), special reflector and fixing clamps.
Ø app. 80 mm (c. 3.2”), Length: app. 80 cm (c. 32”). Hose connection: 6 mm, (c. 1/4”)
