What’s That Smell?
FeedMe™ Phyto and Phyto X contain 3 marine algae species (Nannochloropsis oculata, Tetraselmis sp., and Isochrysis sp.) giving your entire tank a well-rounded nutritional feeding by providing natural EPA and DHA fatty acids, vitamin C, and amino acids.
Isochrysis naturally releases a sulfurous odor often described as a low-tide aroma. This odor, Dimethyl sulfide (DMS), is produced and released in cultures as part of the species’ natural cryo-protection of the cell as well as contributing to food chain dynamics. DMS is soluble in seawater which makes it readily available to be released in the air causing a build-up in your bottle; therefore, the greater the air space in your bottle, the greater the odor may be. Lower temperatures slow the production and release of DMS so we ask that for maximum quality, you refrigerate your Phyto and Phyto X. Please remember that the DMS present in your solution is in extremely low concentrations and is completely harmless to you and your culture. This is an absolutely natural result of the Isochrysis growth and aging process.
