How much Coral Extacy food to feed Amphipods?
Do Amphipods eat phytoplankton?
The more protein nutrients you feed to your Amhpipods the faster they grow and reproduce. You have to find the best feeding regimen for your culture. There's no ABC rules for this. Too much food and you can foul your water quality. You have to find the balance of all the factors for the culture that your keeping. This is why we give general guidelines for culturing and no exact figures etc.
The person running the culture has to monitor all the aspects in the culture and make decisions that lead to a balance of all the factors to have a successful outcome in Amphipod cultures.
As far as Amphipods eating phytoplankton. The juveniles might eat some phyto if they don't have another food source. Same with the adults, if they can't scavenge other sources of food they would modify their behavior and eat what's available. If they are only eating Phyto then they grow slower and reproduce in less numbers than if fed meaty foods such as our Coral Extacy Amphipod food.
So the idea that they eat Phytoplankton is true but not applicable. Just like we humans eat phytoplankton all the time and it actually could be a food of the future for us if we ever need more food on the planet. ie. Certain people like Astronauts that are stuck in the space station eat phyto as a daily diet to survive. But I don't think most people would purposefully choose to eat Phytoplankton if they have other food available. Same thing would apply to any animal.
