    Salt bucket of old salt water, leave outside, add a piece of banana skin and let the water go green. Add a starter culture of pods leave a few weeks in some sun in summer and away you go. Fresh pods to feed your fish and corals.

    This video is of some I have harvested to feed my tank.

    It's simple and costs nothing and produces phyto/green water.
