Collection: Zebrafish Larviculture

Together with our sister company, Sustainable Aquatics, the world's largest hatchery for marine ornamentals and Dr. Terry Snell of Georgia Tech, one of the worlds leading rotifer experts, Sustainable Nutrition has developed Amplifeed(tm) Replete, a rotifer grow out feed supplement together with a complete protocol for growing rotifers that are robust, nutritious and available on demand.  These significant breakthroughs in rotifer culture and nutrition have attracted the interest of the zebrafish community. 

Amplifeed(tm) Replete is a new dry rotifer feed that produces faster rotifer population growth and higher populations densities. Sustainable Nutrition has observed faster weaning to dry feeds, better survival rates, faster growth and generation times, and greater FI fertility in tropical ornamental fish studies at Sustainable Aquatics.

Amplifeed(tm) Replete enriched rotifers may allow zebrafish hatcheries to eliminate Artemia for zebrafish larvicultures. 

Doing so requires following best practices: 

  • maintaining closed, nearly sterile growth environments, using sterile bags and RO water
  • resting rotifer eggs, free of contamination from other rotifer species and ciliates
  • a starter culture of unialgal tetraselmis algae
  • the use of Amplifeed Replete(tm) as a rotifer growout feed supplement.    Rotifer cultures fed Amplifeed Replete(tm) grow 20% faster and deliver nature's most powerful antioxidant; astaxanthin, and other valuable supplements directly into the organism's gut leading to better fish larval crop outcomes. 

 

 "Amplified(tm) Replete is the world's best commercial prepared rotifer feed I have ever tested."

Dr. Terry Snell, Georgia Tech  Bioscience Department
