If you have few small cultures, you can reinnoculate the large ones if something happens.

Suzy, I tried to reply to this a minute ago but must have hit the wrong button. Yes I think paste is great if you don't have enough live phyto and I think you never have enough live phyto. As a practical matter you mix live phyto with enough inert food to increase food but not enough to pollute the water, lower DO and bloom bacteria and ciliates. Its a fine line. You have a great idea to keep subcultures handy to incconulate when the main batch crashes.
