overview
Establish a healthy refugium FAST with this 5-in-1 starter kit. Refugium kit features three (3) sources of beneficial macro algae PLUS (1) Amphipods starter culture and (1) Tisbe copepod starter culture. Macro algae make excellent fast growing nutrient exporters, improving water quality, and amphipods and copepods provide essential food for thriving fish populations.

In your Refugium Kit, you will receive (3) three 2 oz portions of one or more of the following four algae varieties, depending upon availability:

  Chaetomorpha Algae, also known as Spaghetti Algae or Green Hair Algae, is a fast growing, hardy algae that absorbs nitrate and phosphate out of the water as it grows. Also a great habitat for microfauna such as copepods and amphipods to reside and populate.

Red or Green Gracilaria Algae, is a transparent algae that is a natural food source for all herbivorous fish. This live food will provide the proper nutrition for many species of plant eating marine fish.

Ulva, or sea lettuce, is an ideal phosphate remover. Plus it makes a highly nutritious food source for amphipods and copepods!

PLUS two (2) live food varieties:

  Amphipods fill an essential gap in the home aquarium food chain, providing vital nutrients for Cardinals, Wrasse, Butterflyfish and more (a minimum of 10 Amphipods)!

Tisbe biminiensis is an excellent all-purpose aquarium copepod owing to its role in the natural environment as a detritivore. Tisbe will also enter the water column as food for your filter feeding reef inhabitants and replenish the adult population vital to tank hygiene (100 - 200 count).

The Refugium Starter Kit is guaranteed to arrive alive but is exempt from our extended guarantee after their arrival.
