Live Gracilaria Season Ended

Live Gracilaria Season Ended
Gracilaria season has ended and we have just received our last shipment of fresh live gracilaria until February/March. Gracilaria is generally cultured in outdoor systems where there must be warm water and ample sunlight. As the weather cools in winter, the gracilaria does not grow as well and if the water temperature gets too low the algae begins to die off. Even though heating the systems can help to continue the season, it is generally cost prohibitive for our suppliers.

Fortunately, we now have a solution for those who prefer feeding their fish with gracilaria. Nutramar Ogo, the Hawaiian name for gracilaria, is freeze dried gracilaria and once placed in water will hydrate back to its live size and shape. This product allows aquarists to feed algae to their aquarium at their own rate as opposed to live gracilaria which must be placed in the aquarium immediately in order to survive. Nutramar Ogo comes in an attractive and convenient re-sealable package. Each package contains ounce of dry product which re-hydrates to 2.5 ounces when soaked for 15-30 minutes.
