What is the difference between "Nano" and "Iso?"
Nannochloropsis (Nano) oculata (1-5 microns are tiny, non-flagellated, green algae, high in Omega long chains and Omega 3 fatty acids, making it a nutritious food source for filter feeders, copepods, clams, and other sea life. It also helps fight nuisance algae by consuming several nitrogen waste compounds, such as ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates. This is even more beneficial if you are prone to overfeeding, adding new livestock, or reducing the frequency of water changes.
Isochrysis (Iso) galbana (10-14 microns) are brown bi-flagellate algae high in Omega-3 fatty acids, EPA, and DHA, making it an excellent food source for filter feeders, clams, zooplankton, copepods, brine, clams, etc. It will also aid in the coloration resilience in corals, clams, oysters, mussels, scallops, and other living sea creatures!
