Live Tigriopus copepods (Tigriopus californicus) -- Buffalo Reef Biologics pods!
Live marine Tigriopus copepods, in 8 ounce and 16 ounce bottles.
Great for seeding a reef tank, these detrivores are awesome for your tank. They will add another link to the natural food chain in your tank, and will help rid the sand bed of detritus.
Feed fish directly or seed the sand bed. Seed at night with a short piece of small diameter pipe. Place one end of the pipe down close to the sand bed and slowly pour the copepods into it.
We use pristine water, and only aquarium-safe fertilizer (for the phytoplankton I feed the copepods with). I use high quality salt mixed with RODI water only, so there'll be no phosphates or nitrates going into your tank.
The water we ship in will often seem tinted yellow or very light green; this is normal, and is the phytoplankton we feed the pods.
If you don't use the whole container, refrigerate remainder. They're said to keep up to 30 days.
Our product is absolutely teeming with life; roughly 100 to 200 or so for every 8 ounces.
