The absolute best way to add the copepods to your tank is as follows:
- Float bag in tank for 10min to acclimate for temperature. Never dose cold pods.
- Add Poseidon’s Feast just after the lights in your aquarium turn off. While not required, this will allow the copepods time to find a hiding spot before being predated by hungry fish in the aquarium. However, if you are trying to feed your saltwater fish with copepods, dose them with the lights on and watch them feast!
- Turn off circulation pumps, powerheads, protein skimmers, and UV lights for 15 minutes after dosing live copepods. Again, not required but will help give the copepods a chance to settle into their new home.
