Daphbio® Microfauna: a unique product for your reef aquarium
Daphbio®: an innovative trailblazer! We have known for more than 30 years that a reef aquarium with no microfauna just doesn’t work. The necessity for microfauna in saltwater reef aquariums, in particular when starting your reef aquarium and for proper aquarium maintenance by reseeding, is little-known in France. Daphbio® live microfauna and meiofauna serve to create, or recreate, the food chain that is so crucial to your aquarium. Daphbio® offers high-quality, diverse live microfauna, crucially seeded with meiofauna and bacterio-plankton, to culture your natural or inert stones, and to feed your fish and invertebrates such as corals and gorgonians. Our microfauna is perfectly well suited to delicate fish such as mandarins: Synchiropus picturatus (the dragonet) and Synchiropus splendidus. This product is ideal too for refugiums and settling tanks. .
Daphbio® microfauna and meiofauna eggs: available in 1-litre bottles suited to aquariums between 60 and 4,000 litres in size. It is not possible to overdose the tank with this product, even a nano-aquarium.
A live, 100% biological product!
Daphbio® microfauna is a work of art, honed by long experience. We combine all the diverse microfauna, the whole food chain essential for saltwater and reef aquariums in one bottle: microfauna (copepods, brachion, rotifers, nematode/white grubs), micro-organisms, meiofauna and bacterioplankton.
We harvest seeded microfauna, meaning it is ready to lay and so culture your aquarium. Our cultures, which are particularly resistant to extreme temperatures and being transported, are specially grown biologically.

very good (Translated review)
Nothing to say about this product! it may be that I combine it with the dosage of phytoplankton produced by me but after each dosage the tank is reborn and filled with life. Unfortunately after 3-4 months the biodiversity is reduced so I find it useful to reseed every 3-4 months to give the system a way to feed naturally (Translated review)
