I've been growing it for a few months now. Use the f2 fertilizer. I light for 18 hours with some led grow strip lights from amazon. It's pretty simple

F/2 is preferred because it was formulated for aquatic use. It has less copper and phosphate than terrestrial fertilizer. I bought a large bottle on ebay for like 12 bucks...

Any one have tips on Culturing Phytoplankton?

I've been watching videos about it, and they recommend using F2 Fertilizer because it's "Reef Safe" but all the F2 fert. I can find has copper in it. Do I need fertilizer or just a good growing light? 

Also how long do you recommend the lighting to be on? 12 hours? more or less? 

Any tips or links to other threads/post would be great thanks!
