As a live food, rotifers are the perfect size (105-160 micrometers in width) for many species of fish larvae that are cultured commonly, such as clown fish, gobies, Mediterranean sea basses and snappers, red drum, pompano, and cobia, just to name a few.

For rotifers to be nutritionally suitable for fish larvae, they must be "enriched", fed with various combinations of microalgae or commercially prepared products. Once enriched, rotifers are an excellent hatchery food for many species of larval fish.

AlgaGen has been providing rotifers to numerous hatcheries for years now. Their cultures are some of the cleanest on the market.

Rotifers are 150 to 300 Microns.

Rotifers are guaranteed to arrive alive but are exempt from our extended guarantee after their arrival.
