Phytoplankton Cultures for Students, Teachers, Aquariums, Researchers, and Spirulina Growers

Algae Research Supply Is Hitting The Road!

Come visit us at the California Science Education Conference in Pasadena 11/30-12/2 and the STEAM Maker Fest in San Diego on 12/1. Come say hi and see some algae!

Science Projects for the Classroom

Easy to use classroom and Home-School projects to investigate photosynthesis, pH, spectrophotometry, energy transfer between trophic levels. We can even design low-cost kits for custom projects!

Classroom Algae Projects

Bring on the Pigments!

If your polyps need some pep, and your cnidarians have needs- FEED them what they would eat in nature- ALGAE! We have vivid RED, GOLDEN, and GREEN algae that will make your marine friend's tenticals tickle!

Aquarium Feeds

Ready made experiment kits

Do you already have a question to ask algae? We can send you a kit FAST to get you started. Grab hold of your scientific method and dive in to your project.

Experiment Kits
