Rotifers


Description
The word "rotifer" is derived from a Latin word meaning "wheel-bearer", due to the corona around the mouth that in concerted sequential motion resembles a wheel (though the organ does not actually rotate). Rotifers are microscopic organisms measuring between 50-360 microns that form one of the most basic links in the aquatic food chain. Specific strains of rotifers are being aquacultured intensively and have been used to raise countless species of marine fish, corals and invertebrates. They are the ideal starter food for species of fish such as clownfish fry which have tiny larvae with very, very tiny mouths. Generally almost any marine aquarium will benefit from the addition of rotifers. Their size and excellent nutritional value (50% to 65% protein) make them the perfect live food for all (freshwater and marine) fry, anemones, sponges etc.

Rotifer Delight allows you to try one of the best natural foods for your aquarium pets at very affordable prices.

Ingredients
Enriched Brachionus plicatilis ("L" strain) rotifers, which range in size from 100µm to 300µm (microns). Our live rotifers are cultured in saltwater with a specific gravity of 1.023 and are maintained at a population density of 200 rotifers per ml of water. This product is 100% Natural, with no additives, binders, gels or preservatives.

Enriching means feeding a premium food that contains fatty acids (especially EPA, DHA and ArA), carbohydrates, proteins, and vitamins. This process is known as “gut loading”. Our rotifers are enriched by continuously feeding them a specially designed phytoplankton blend which provides optimum amounts of the above mentioned nutrients.

Directions
For best results target feed your animals on as-needed bases. To feed the entire tank simply pour the bottle directly into the aquarium or use a 53µm sieve to strain them. Our minimum recommended dosage is 1 ml of live rotifers per 1 gallon of aquarium water three (3) times a week. Shake bottle before use.

1 ml = 20 drops
1 Tsp = 5 ml
1 Tbsp = 15 ml
¼ cup = 59 ml (4 Tbsp)
½ cup = 118 ml
1 cup = 236 ml

Storage

WARNING: DO NOT FREEZE!

Keep Refrigerated between 34-39 F (1-4°C) for up to 10 days. After 10 days about 15% of your rotifers should be alive.
