Each 16oz portion of Tisbee Pods contains 3000+ LIVE Tisbe Copepods ranging from nauplii to adult sizes. Tisbee Pods are great for seeding new tanks and refugiums, boosting existing populations, and feeding finicky fish & inverts such as Mandarins, Seahorses, Anthias, Wrasses, SPS, LPS & NPS Corals, Clams, and most other filter-feeding inverts. Our pods are 100% viable to reproduce in marine aquaria. We recommend using with our high-quality OceanMagik LIVE Phytoplankton Blend to establish and maintain the healthiest copepod populations.
These smaller, yet hardy tisbe copepods tend to inhabit the cracks and crevasses of live rock and macroalgae. Hiding helps them to maintain their population in marine aquaria. Their nocturnal nature makes them a sustainable food source in your tank, while keeping 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: Tisbee Pods contains a range of juvenile to adult tisbe copepods. Juvenile copepods are difficult to see with the naked eye upon arrival, but are best for establishing sustainable tisbe biminiensis copepod populations. This is because livestock do not consume the copepods immediately after you add them into your tank!
