Nano Brine Product Info:The Nano Brine in Tank Booster are premium decapsulated Live Brine Shrimp between 400-500 microns that are rich in fat and protein, making them an excellent food source for fish, coral, and other filter-feeding invertebrates. These are added to the tank booster pack in order to provide your fish with a quick, rich food source! Nano Brine is packaged as eggs that hatch in transit so they arrive at a highly nutritious (i.e. young) life stage. Because we decapsulate our eggs, even the unhatched ones are a safe, fatty-acid rich food source that is healthful and produces minimal waste. Nano brine is also guaranteed to be free of harmful bacteria and parasites!
- Inspect sealed bag for swimming movement to be sure the eggs hatched successfully in transit
- Pour entire contents into aquarium to feed fish
- For best results, turn off pumps and filtration until product is completely consumed
- Nano Brine can be enriched with OceanMagik live phytoplankton: Just add a few drops into the package container as a nutritious food source for the brine shrimp.
Cerith Snail Product Info:The cerith snail is a hardy little clean-up animal that is a great addition to any tank. This omnivore eats a variety of foods ranging from detritus to hair algae. It prefers to forage at night, so it may not always be seen during the daylight hours. It is a burrower, turning over the substrate well and promoting a clean and highly oxygenated sand bed. It has the highly desirable habit of clearing algae from the tank panels just below the substrate surface. Remaining at a fairly small size, it can get into tighter areas of the rockwork that other snails cannot. It is known for being relatively long-lived in captivity.
Clean Chaeto Product Info:This hardy green algae is included in Tank Booster to create excellent biogenic microhabitat for small benthic critters such as copepods and amphipods. It grows in long, curvy, rigid strands that create a framework with ample inner space that provides shelter for a diversity of microfauna. Chaeto is popularly used in refugia and algae scrubbers, where dense masses of the plant can be kept with minimal packing.

We aquarists don’t talk much about sand. Quite frankly, it’s just not all that exciting–on the surface, anyway. But we don’t have to dig very deep to find that aquarium sand (or rather the stuff that lives within it) is not only quite interesting, but it also carries considerable importance for the health of our …
in Few, if any, of us get “into” aquarium keeping to become marine ecologists, or become experts in metabolic processes. But it does happen, albeit over some time. We buy our first fish tank with the sole intention of keeping colorful animals–simple as that. We do soon learn, however, that an aquarium system is really …
We get it… Copepods aren’t always cheap. Especially if you use a clean, high-quality, high-density, expertly packaged product with as many as four copepod species at various life stages (e.g. EcoPods!). But, using top-shelf products, you do get what you pay for. That’s why making a little extra effort to get the most out of …
