Microcrustaceans such as amphipods, isopods and copepods are a vital component of nearly every aquatic ecosystem on Earth being the most abundant and the most nutricious in the animal world. Each consumes detritus and film algae boosting the efficiency of any clean-up crew as well as feeding corals and small fishes such dragonets, seahorses, anthias etc with their healthy protein amino acid enriched bodies.Copepods vary in size from just a few microns up to 53+ microns. What you can see with the naked eye are fully formed breeding adult's. Juveniles and larval stages can't be seen by the naked eye and need to be under a range of 100×-300x microscope to be seen . Temperature acclimation can be done by floating the bottles or leaving them sit out at room temperature for 30 minutes. We strongly suggest feeding our Nannochloropsis phytoplanton nightly when these pods come out to feed to increase pod populations.
K&P Copepod(6 species) and Rotifers

Float pod bottle till they match the tanks temp. For use as coral and fish food pour bottle into tank during day. To seed tank add bottle to tank as lights go out or can be poured half in sump and half in tank. Many pods will still survive no matter the time of day fed and will continue to populate the tank and help keep the tank cleaner overall.
