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.
