Important Feeding Tips
When your Dino Pet is quite bright and dense with dinoflagellates (about 7-10 days after setup), just unscrew the cap in the Dino’s belly, pour out about 1/5 of the contents, and fill it back up with Dino Food. Feed your Dino Pet every 7-10 days to ensure your dinos will stay glowing strong, and even reproducing!
- When feeding your Dino Pet, don’t pour out too much of the dinoflagellate culture inside. Dinoflagellates don’t fare well if they are diluted with too much sea water.
- Dinoflagellates divide every 7-14 days inside your Dino Pet. Cell division times vary depending on the amount of light received, room temperature and available nutrients.
- Again, feed your Dino Pet every 7-14 days. You can allow your Dino Pet to grow very dense with dinoflagellate cells to see very bright bioluminescent light when shaken.
