To our valued customers: 

We will continue to operate as best we can under the circumstances. We know that your operations, large and small, rely on timely delivery of food. However, our utmost concern is for the health of you and your families, our dedicated employees and their families. So please bear with us as we try to make the best of a bad situation.

To limit exposure in the workplace we will be closed on Fridays. 

Shipping transit times are currently not guaranteed by FedEx.  Please be aware that prolonged severe weather is causing transit delays across the US, not just in affected areas.

Winter weather has created hazardous conditions across the US and has caused substantial disruption at the FedEx Hub in Memphis.  FedEx is working hard system wide to clear the back log of packages while keeping employees safe.

Until further notice, we will ship all frozen orders on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Stay healthy ansd atay safe!

Algae & Enrichments

Marine, fresh and brackish water microalga provide some of the most nutritious feed for salt water invertebrates and filter-feeders, marine and freshwater fish and shrimp. When live algae is not available, the next best solution is to add one of our microalgae concentrates to your tank system. By starting at the base of the food chain, you will be able to grow and enrich zooplankton for your fish larvae and invertebrates. Live corals will actively respond when marine microalgae is added to the reef aquarium.

Algae Paste products ship on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays unless other arrangements are made. Two day transit is required. 

 Live algae starter cultures of  Tetraselmis and Nannochloropsis are available.  Orders can be placed over the phone at  801-782-4700.
