PyroDinos are bioluminescent marine plankton classified as Pyrocystis fusiformis (aka Dinoflagellates). PyroDinos use light to grow (like a plant) and glow blue at night when disturbed. They grow and perform their best when DinoNutrients are periodically added.
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! They are non-toxic but live in seawater which is not digestable.

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. PyroDinos will require daily lighting (low to moderate room lighting), 8- 12 hours a day. Loosen cap once a week to allow for some air-exchange.
Find a clean, clear container to pour your PyroDinos into that will allow them to grow. Every one or two weeks, add small amounts of DinoNutrients (10 to 20%) of total volume.
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 30 days after arrival.
It is recommended to open the shipping box within 24 hours of arrival. These little plankton need light!
