Cell components are in a variety of sizes due to the way each component is inactivated and dried.  

To prepare and hydrate the algae mix:

  1. Emulsify Algamac Protein Plus in fresh or salt water by blending in an electric blender for a couple of minutes then sieve through a 50 micron mesh to remove the fractionated foam.

  2. Apply at a rate of 0.5 grams AlgaMac Protein Plus per million rotifers twice a day.
