100% COPEPODS: Our Poseidon’s Feast and 5280 Pods contain 100% Copepods of the species Tigriopus californicus, Tisbe biminiensis and Apocyclops panamensis at all life stages. Please note that Copepods are NOT AMPHIPODS and have different roles in your aquarium. Copepods are much smaller than Amphipods with the Tisbe and Apocyclops appearing as “dust-specs” in the water column. The Tigriopus are slightly larger and swim with a characteristic jerky movement. Please note that what makes our products unique is that they contain Copepods in all life-stages ranging from juveniles to Adults. This approach allows us to have the widest size range possible and allows you to easily establish and maintain copepod populations in your tank as the juveniles grow into adults and reproduce before they are consumed by your fish.
We aren't selling you a one-time snack for your fish. Our products will seed and establish your tank with a copepod population that will reproduce and feed your reef for years to come.
