I would be VERY wary of centrifuging 5 gallon quantities of anything,
unless you have access to industrial size equipment. The forces generated
in even a slow centrifuge are incredible and potentially fatal.
If you are really interested in concentrated algae, Brine Shrimp Direct
sells a Cryopaste you may be interested in.
This link is unavailable today for some reason. Another source is Reed
Reed sells larger quantities (minimum 1 liter) to hatcheries. A liter of
this stuff will last a LONG time, unless you are raising a LOT of copepods.
Brine Shrimp Direct sells a 100 ml. bottle that is great for most hobbists.
No, I am not associated with either of these organizations.
how many RPMs would be needed to spin them down? I was
considering somthing along the lines of a washing machine motor and 5
gallon buckets to do the volume that I would need to process. After giving
it a bit of doing inhte head it doesn't seem to reasonable. Perhaps
settling a nonmotile species wihtout somthering it.... Any ideas?
