Just wondering what you are tinting your fry tank water with?

Again, reading conflicting things.

I am not culturing phytoplankton myself. I use Rotigrow plus to feed my rotifers, but I'm reading that this may have adverse effects using it in the fry tank.

Going to be ordering Rotigreen Omega. Just wondering what you all who are successful are doing?

Thanks.

I've never had issues using RGComplete. Just don't over do it.

How many ML's do you put in there?

For those using RGComplete, how many ML or drops are you putting in your rotifer culture daily?

on a 5 gallon bucket with about 4 gallons of water, I use 20 drops twice a day. Once in the morning, and once in the evening. The water is pretty much clear after each application.

How about the fry tank??? How often do you put the RG complete in there?

I add about 4 ML twice a day for the first 7 to 8 days there is normally about 3 gallons day 1 and about 5 by day seven in 10 gal larvae tanks. These numbers work for me, but every ones setup is different and nothing here is written in stone. You've got figure out whats best for you with success and failures

I have also been using the RGComplete in the fry tank. This has basically eliminated the use of any other ammonia neutralizer that I use. The last 3 batches I have used this and I have had much better success than using Roti Rich or Nanno paste as I had previously.
