Live Pods- Great Fish and Coral Food
This product is set for Canadian Residents - Increased shipping and delayed delivery.
Amphipods can be distinguished from copepods as able to seen at a distant.
Amphipods range in size from 5-10mm, where as copepods range from 1-3mm.
This listing is for a variety of both.
Amphipods and copepods make excellent food for picky eaters like seahorses. Mandarin gobies love them and they are essential to a reef tank adding biodiversity.
Tanks can be seeded with them by introducing ~100 per 25 gallons or through the use of an upstream fishless refugium kept dimly lit.
The most common amphipods found in aquaria are either herbivores or detritivores. They tend to eat either plant or algal material preferentially and either graze on algae or eat debris of plant or algal origin.
In our aquaria, amphipods are typically part of the cleanup crew. In addition, they are good food for whatever fish can catch them. Altogether they are a beneficial and interesting component of our systems' fauna.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A MIXTURE OF AMPHIPODS AND COPEPODS.
WE HAVE NO WAY TO DETERMINE WHAT TYPE (amphipod or copepod) OR PERCENTAGE (ie: 75% amphipod/ 25% copepod) YOU WILL RECEIVE.
PODS ARE SMALL- SOME ARE VERY, VERY SMALL ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE "TODDLERS".
YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO "COUNT" THEM- WE ARE UNABLE TO COUNT THEM FOR EACH AND EVERY ORDER!
TO ENSURE YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR WE USE A MEASUREMENT THAT HAS BEEN COUNTED AND OBSERVED FOR MUCH MORE THAN THIS. PLEASE OBSERVE THE SHEAR AMOUNT OF LIFE YOU RECEIVE AFTER YOU THUMP THE BAG GENTLY WITH YOUR FINGER.
THE TRANSPORT MEDIA WILL LITERALLY CRAWL WITH LIFE- SO ENJOY AND PLEASE LET US KNOW IMMEDIATELY IF THERE IS ANY PROBLEM WITH YOUR SHIPMENT.
I ordered 2500 of these to drop in my 125 gal saltwater tank. They say it's a great source of biodiversity for the tank and food my red spotted blenny, diamond goby, and anything else that can catch it! I also purchased a small 5 gallon tank.. added a tiny bit of sand, sponge filter, and a small chaeto plant along with 2000 of these. Happy to say my order came in quick and these guys were extremely active! It's been a couple weeks now and those I dropped into the tiny tank are multiplying! No...
