Diet Advantage: Are you ready for an amazing fact? Tetraselmis chui, a unicellular green algae, is not only a nutritious and valuable source of food for many marine organisms, but it also contains a variety of essential macronutrients and micronutrients. Its rich nutritional profile includes carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, vitamins, minerals, and pigments such as chlorophyll a and b, β-carotene, and zeaxanthin. Not only that, but Tetraselmis chui is also capable of consuming inorganic waste such as ammonia, nitrate, phosphate, and carbon dioxide via photosynthesis, making it the perfect addition to the feeding regimen of marine ornamental livestock-rich nutritional profile.

Reef Advantage: Tetraselmis chui is a green algae that's not afraid to move. That's right, folks, it's motile! This unicellular wonder has flagella, whip-like appendages that let it cruise through the water column. While its motility may not be the fastest or strongest, it's still there, making Tetraselmis chui a facultative motile species. So don't settle for boring phytoplankton. Get Tetraselmis chui and watch it move!

    I have been ordering Copepods for many years and I never notice any reaction from my fish or corals when I bought from other places not so buying from Pod Your Reef! The copepods were alive and well! You could even see some swimming around in the tank my mushroom corals went crazy! Highly recommend getting your copepods from here!
