  Live Fresh Rotifers from 5.40

Description: What Are Rotifers?

Rotifers (Brachionus plicatilis) are very tiny animals measuring between 130-200 micrometers. Rotifers are often raised as food for live corals and fish larvae. They are the ideal starter food for species of fish such as clown fish fry which have tiny larvae with very, very tiny mouths.

Who Should Use Rotifers?

Almost any marine aquarium will benefit from the addition of rotifers, Their size and excellent nutritional value (50% to 65% protein) make them the perfect live food for all (freshwater and marine) fry, anemones, sponges etc.

How To Feed Rotifers

To add them to your system, simply pour the bottle directly into the aquarium or use a sieve to strain them. Feed as little or as much as required. Rotifers can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days if you do not want to feed them all at the same time. Rotifers are perfect for a reef's food source because they multiply very rapidly and they are just the right size for almost all filter feeders.
