“The Revolutionary New Red Algal Feed”
Nutra-Kol USA is a up and rising company first based out of Australia that makes interesting and well thought out food supplements. The NutraPlus product line contains high levels of minerals, vitamins, fatty acids and carotenes that are ideal for any filter feeders, fish and marine organisms. They claim to enhance and brighten natural colors of any organism kept under “artificial conditions” such as aquariums. The NutraPlus range of products include several feeds scientifically designed to address the specific requirements of different marine organisms. The products are ideal as a sole food source for filter feeders, food additive for any fish and crustacean species as well as replacement of traditional green microalgae in ‘green water’ systems. NutraPlus products are already being used in several public aquaria, as well as private and government hatcheries in Australia and around the world. This is pretty impressive for a company you probably haven’t heard of.
NutraPlus Reef is a microalgae and rotifers mix for carnivorous and herbivorous filter feeding animals in marine aquariums. It contains the red microalgae Dunaliella salina and green algae from the Chlorella, Spirulina, and Nannochloropsis species. It is also infused with a combination of rotifers (Brachionus plicatilis), copepods, and other zooplankton at a concentration of over 2000 per ml. This higher concentration makes it more ideal for larger aquaria.
