PyroDinos are bioluminescent marine plankton classified as Pyrocystis fusiformis (aka Dinoflagellates). Also incorrectly referred to as tiny shrimp lights, baby sea monkeys and The LEDs of the Sea.
PyroDinos use light to grow (like a plant) and glow blue at night when disturbed. The natural light produced by these plankton is called Bioluminescence. PyroDinos will only light up at night, in the dark when gently swirled or shaken. Enjoy them in the spout pouch or your favorite bottle or clear container.
Do not drink PyroDinos! No really - do not drink them!
PyroDinos will require daily lighting (low to moderate room lighting), 8- 12 hours a day. It is OK to leave the PyroDinos in their white Spout Pouch for 1 month after delivery. Our PyroDinos have enough resources in the pouch to sustain them for 4 weeks. Loosen cap once a week to allow for some air-exchange.
PyroDinos will not survive more than 4 or 5 days without daily light.
We have been growing and selling dinoflagellates since 2011 and guarantee all our dinoflagellates for 60 days after arrival.
It is recommended to open the shipping box within 24 hours of arrival. These little plankton need light!
