BioPop propagates a species of dinoflagellate classified as Pyrocystis fusiformis. BioPop is the dinoflagellate authority when it comes to growth and production of this species. To date, BioPop has grown well over 30,000 liters of dinoflagellates in our facility in Carlsbad, CA. This translates to roughly 9 trillion individual dinoflagellate cells. Biopop is committed to providing comprehensive information on dinoflagellate care. Oftentimes we need to condense and simplify this information so it does not overwhelm the average Dino Pet owner. This segment is for the Dino Pet owner who wants to dive into the details.  To put simply, dinoflagellates are...

You asked, and we listened-- we’ve created a new shape to showcase dinoflagellates! It’s round and elegant, and it’s called the Dino Sphere. This glass sphere is 10cm in diameter, and the contents inside glow brilliantly with the swirl of your hand at night. Just like the Dino Pet, the dinoflagellates gain energy from the sun during the day, and glow brilliantly when interacted with at night. What makes the Dino Sphere different, besides its modern shape? Less maintenance! A Dino Sphere will last several months in the right temperature and with a proper light/dark schedule. You can extend the...
