ZooMed Can O’ Cyclops

$7.00

Can O’ Cyclops by ZooMed provides excellent nutritional value for small fish, such as the Biota Captive Bred Mandarin. These preserved copepods are similar in appearance and size to live adult copepods; therefore, encouraging a fantastic feeding response.

By supplementing the diet of active copepod predators with Can O’ Cyclops at regular periods in the day, mandarin fish, wrasses, and other heavy copepod consumers can feast on several large meals while simulatenously allowing them to snacking on live copepods when prepared food is not available. This helps ensure that the mandarins are consuming a sufficient amount of calories to grow and develop.

AlgaeBarn regularly feeds Can O’ Cyclops and Nano Brine to the Biota Captive Bred Mandarins at our facilities. These helps ensure that these mandarins will accept a readily available and storable dry food.

Can O’ Cyclops by ZooMed

Can O’ Cyclops provides excellent nutritional value for small fish, such as the Biota Captive Bred Mandarin Fish. These preserved cyclopoid copepods are similar in appearance and size to live adult copepods that we sell at AlgaeBarn — and they encourage a fantastic feeding response. By feeding Can O’ Cyclops routinely to an aquarium with active copepod predators, you can ease the demand and consumption of your live copepod populations.

One of the greatest features of Can O’ Cyclops stems from its shelf-life. An unopened can may sit on a shelf for over 3 years! To find the exact expiration date, look on the bottom of the can. Once opened, store Can O’ Cyclops with the lid in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Can’t use a whole can in one week? Simply freeze a portion and thaw it when you are ready to use it. The convenient canned packaging and long shelf life ensuring that you always have a nutritious and enticing food source.

Food for Captive Bred Mandarin Fish

AlgaeBarn regularly feeds Can O’ Cyclops and Nano Brine to the Biota Captive Bred Mandarin fish at our facilities. This practice helps ensure that these mandarins will accept a readily available and storable dry food. We highly suggest that if you have any small fish, or if you have purchased a captive bred mandarin from us, that you try out Can O’ Cyclops.

Did you know that Mandarin fish feed in similar ways to a humming bird — constantly eating all day. By supplementing their diet with prepared food at regular periods in the day, the mandarin fish can consume several “big” meals while constantly snacking on live copepods. This will help ensure that the mandarins are consuming a sufficient amount of calories to grow and develop.
