This product is set for Canadian Residents - Increased shipping and delayed delivery.

  • 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.
