About Our Pods:

If you are trying to seed a new aquarium or looking to boost Pod populations in your established system, Poseidon’s Feast will get the job done. With over 3000+ live copepods in every 16oz’s of Poseidon’s Feast you can rest assured that finicky feeders such as Mandarin Dragonets, Seahorses, Anthias, Corals, Clams, and other Filter Feeding Invertebrates will always have a continuous supply of live, nutritious food. Our pods are 100% viable to reproduce within a marine environment as they grow and carryout their natural lifecycle in your aquarium. As some of the smallest mouths in a balanced ecosystem, a healthy population of Copepods is a critical, yet often overlooked part of any “Clean Up Crew”.

Below is some information about the species of pods included in our Poseidon’s Feast Live Copepod product:

Tigriopus californicus:

Large, red, and packed with omega-3 fatty and amino acids, Tigriopus copepods make a nutritious meal for even the finickiest of fish. These Pods typically inhabit the water column and are very jerky when they move, making them an easy target for your critters. Females will lay hundreds of eggs during their life cycle thus adding to your “Clean Up Crew” by consuming detritus, invasive algae, and phytoplankton in your aquarium.

Tisbe biminiensis:

These smaller, yet hardy copepods tend to inhabit the cracks and crevasses of live rock and macro algae. Hiding helps them to maintain their population in marine aquaria. Their nocturnal nature makes them a sustainable food source in your tank and keeps your fish entertained and “on the hunt”. In addition to being a highly nutritious treat for your fish, they also add to your “Clean Up Crew” by consuming detritus, phytoplankton and invasive algae in your aquarium. Think of these guys as the smallest mouths in your food chain.



Please note: Copepods are sold by quantity, not volume of carrier water. The volume of the carrier water may be slightly more or less than noted in the size. We guarantee you will receive at least the number of copepods stated. You often receive quite a few more.

    This is my insurance policy for a fat and happy Mandarin. I have no idea how big my copepod population is. If you buy this youll see 3000 copepods look mostly like dirty water, and the only reason you can see them moving is because theyre all together in a thin bag you can hold up to the light. You get way more for your money with this product than from other major companies.

    If you knew how much I have spent on copepods you would be glad that I found Algae Barn. Love them!

    It might not look like there are a ton of pods in here, but theyre there. I promise. I added these to the sump and watched them disseminate throughout the reef system. They have been fruitful and multipled! My mandarin is happy!

    Algaebarn is are the only company I trust with pods, and their ocean magik mix I believe its called (the phytoplankton). When you get shipments in from them, they are immaculately packaged, and extremely secure. When you look in the bag, you can see actual pods in their moving. So far, I add it to my tank once a month (I order monthly or every other month), and my mandarin is extremely fat. I always see pods scampering when I move corals, and find more than plenty in my filter bags, and I attribute they to Algaebarns product. thank you!! Keep producing your awesome pods!

    Algae Barn is a great group of people. I received Poseidin’s feast DOA. They answered my email quickly, and got me my new shipment to me in 48 hours. The new shipment was great. I have a very happy fish thanks to them. I highly recommend Algae Barn

    Boosted my pod population in the refuge in my new 120g setup. Even though USPS took an extra day in shipping, the bag had plenty of living pods that you cannot see in the photo. Sorry about that. Adding this made a VERY noticeable difference in the pod population of my fuge.

    My second purchase of Poseidon’s Feast from AgaeBarn. Both shipments have been great. This is a great “POD” option for re-seading my population in a 105 Reef tank

    I bought this product thinking I could culture some pods for my mandarin goby. He was very nice and I got only tisbe pods so I could culture. This product was so great that I will order again soon. The package was insulated and with cool pack. The package did come in warm but every thing survived. Stop thinking about other brands and go with this one. Its the best I have bought so far!!

    Bag was filled with pods. Put about 3/4 in the refugium and the rest in the display tank. My mandarin is very happy. Will order again in a few months.

    I’ve made few orders through Algae Barn. They arrive quick. The packaging is top notch. The product is exactly what I wanted. The second time I ordered it was delayed by the shipping carrier and majority of my pods arrived dead because of how hot it was in transport which was completely circumstantial. But Algae Barn was quick to send out a replacement. They’ve made a loyal customer out of me and I will continue to keep buying from them. Love the product!

    Superior Customer service! I had received my copepods and there was hardly any trace of life in the bag. My friend who I had recommended to the company happened to be over and found it quite funny although I was unimpressed. I contacted the company immediately and filled out a form online. Within 30 minutes they had approved my replacement. An hour later they shipped my replacement one day air. The next day I received the package and I was astonished when I looked inside. Inside was 2 Poseidon’s Feasts and 2 Bottles of live plankton. Not only that but there was a note inside apologizing and instructions to give 1 of each bottle to my friend. I immediately called my friend and he came over and grab his free products provided by Algae Barn. Inside was the business card of the CEO/Co-Founder. Its not every day you see a CEO get so involved with their customers. The replacements are of the quality I expected from the this company and I will continue to do business with this company. As far as I’m concerned if you purchase copepods or plankton from any other company than you are indeed foolish. Superior customer service. Superior products. Superior Employees. End of Story.
