Live phyto in Europe?

Live phyto in Europe?

Postby TheChemist » Tue Sep 09, 2008 2:29 pm

I am looking for starter cultures of various phytoplankton species, namely T-ISO, nanochloropsis and Rhodomonas lens. I know I saw a thread about this very question with a nice answer and inexpensive source, but for the love of god, I can not find it now that I actually need it.
If anyone knows of a good source in EU please do let me know.
A breeder that has these cultures would also be a really nice source :D.

Thanks, and sorry to bother you guys with this silly question.

Perhaps someone local :) would be willing to make a trade. Some phyto cultures for A. tonsa and Tigriops californicus pods.

Hi there,
I am in the UK and have Nano growing. I have just recieved a starter culture of Rhodomonas lens.
So let me know if you would like me to send some.
Alternatively you could try the following places:

http://www.zmsystems.co.uk/
They currently have Nano, Tet and Iso.

or these guys:
http://www.variconaqua.com/cultures.htm

I will keep looking for the Rhodomonas, or you can just wait to see if my culture takes.

If I could get some Rhodomonas lens from you, that would be awesome. No hurry though. I could return the favor by giving you T-iso, which I intend to purchase, and/or A. tonsa or tiger pods, if you would need them.

Do you have some live cultures and yes I would be more than willing to trade pods for some phyto.

Still looking for T-ISO live culture. I brought some disks back from the USA (FAF), but only Nanochloropsis and Tetraselmis survived. T-ISO did not brown up at all. But that is something I was actually expecting based on other people's experience.
Does anyone know a source in EU, where I could get some live T-ISO and Rhodomonas sp.?
The two stores listed above do not carry what I am looking for.
I would be more than glad to buy it from a fellow breeder as well, as long as its live.

I've had things from both:-http://www.seahorsemania.eu/catalog/index.php/cPath/22
and:- http://www.rsaquaristik.de/index.php?language=en
I had zoo but not phyto, but everything survived the trip to England. They both list a range of phyto starter cultures, not as cheap as FAF discs.
They're both members here("Martin R" and "rainers")
In Uk, there's http://www.ccap.ac.uk/ - huge collection, similar prices to the above.

EDIT - must type faster - your post wasn't up when I started.

True, but I don't think I ever noticed a post about sucessfully starting T-ISO from a disc, just the opposite and I failed to do so as well.

Hi,
i am new here and i just saw this post about phyto in europe. i could help you for some phyto from my collection- as you said T-iso from FAF failed 2 times and once i received some other type even i ordered T-ISO. in europe it is harder to find a pure phyto source , plus it is alot exoensive comparing USA sources. the best way to reach some products is to share among us. keep in touch with me . se vidiva
regards
