    Just wondering if the number of spirals have anything to do with the health of the spirulina? I’m averaging 3 to 6 complete spirals with more emphasis on 4 to 5. Don’t seem to be able to get any more than 6 complete turns. Is this normal? Also, what type of yield should I be looking for from a 75 gallon aquarium

    the number of spirals depends on the strain you have (paracas, lonard, etc.). Each strain will grow to its maximum and then divide.
