Marine Copepods Single Feed Bag (Approx 100ml)

Regular price £2.99

Tax included.

All live foods are pre order only. Please place a seperate order for live foods and we will contact you for payment before we finalise any orders.

We are hoping that this will be a weekly order but due to carriage charges it may be fortnightly until we can build up our customer base as people see the benefits of this feeding program. Thank you.

Please note that prices may change as we build up our base, we will try to keep these as low as possible but these are based on similar that we have found online with shipping charges etc and have done our best to beat them. Obviously as we progress and order more we hope to smash existing online prices.

 

the most abundant food in the oceans, a natural feed for marine fish

In our oceans copepods constitute the largest part of zooplankton and are a natural food for many marine fish and even whales so have great importance in the food chain.  It is estimated that there are around 13,000 species of copepods and they can be found in salt and freshwater and even in damp areas and moss.

This natural and nutritious food is a firm favourite of virtually all marine aquarium fish.  Copepods can also scavenge any food that is left and eat algae so have additional benefits and are often kept in the aquarium or refugium as part of the ecosystem.  Around 0.5 - 1.0 mm in size they can be fed to fry and small fish when brine shrimp are considered too large.

STORAGE: Marine copepods keep well provided they are kept cool.  Best kept unopened in the refrigerator in the bag they come in until use.  If stored properly they should keep for a week or more.

They can be added to the aquarium complete with the water they are supplied in or you can filter them through a net and add just the animals.  Ensure the net size is sufficiently small not to let the copepods through!  Only feed to marine fish.
