sorry to turn this into a tutorial thread from a sales thread.. but what is phyto? why do you need it, and why don't i have any..?

The phyto we have been talking about, is the building blocks for all life in your tank, little pods eat the liquid algea.
Almost all filterfeeders, featherdusters and corals eat it too.
You can buy the concenctrated stuff its really thick and smells bad, then add a few drops a day.

Or you can do like some do and grow large cultures of it at home.
It is the 1st food for some small critters, and those raising fish fry with rotifers and brine shrimp like to feed them phytoplankton, feeding live phyto instead of the drops doest pollute your water as it is alive until eaten.

There is so much more i can tell you but this is the gist of everything.
