so ive been experimenting with small scale algae culture i had a successful spirulina culture going for awhile but i accidentally added the wrong thing to the solution one time and it went south, it could have been recovered but i was so busy at the time i never did, recently i started things back up but this time ive have added chlorrella and nanochloropsis, if these go well i hope to add marine phytoplankton and afa bluegreen algae, only thing is i lost my original notes additionally different micro algae have slightly different preferences so i was wondering if anyone has experience with these things and could recommend some concise media recipes, i have found some scholarly sources but they dont give me the information tailored to my purposes, they are also somewhat unclear as to certain details, so ya any media recipes or good notes would help...as for those who dont know about such things i will give a small overview for your benifit, as i recall my previous recipe went something like this, to 1 liter of liquid one adds 1 gr seasalt 5 gr washing soda 15 gr baking soda, also 1 ml of liquid fertilizer (mostly nitrogen, possibly in the form of ammonium nitrate)concentrate with some chelated iron these things along with a submerged water heater to keep it about 90 f and an air bubbler to keep the algae suspended and provide additional co2 and a ldecent light or sunlight is pretty much the basis for keeping it living...
