As live amphipods mature to adults they become more benthic (like to crawl on structure), but will also swim sometimes.
Newborn naupli are in the 100- 200 micron size.
Stages of juveniles are 1 – 3 millimeter size.
Adults get up to 6 millimeter (1/4 inch) size.
An Amphipod breeding colony can produce many baby pods per week.
Amphipods make an excellent micro cleanup crew. Also serves as a valuable food source of live zooplankton for fish and corals.
Amphipods feed on nuisance algae, dead decaying algae, leftover food and fish waste. They will constantly be grazing on your live rocks & sand bottom. They love to setup their breeding colonies in macro algae. We have been aqua-culturing these pods for a number of years here in Okeechobee, Florida. With these in your tank they will multiply rapidly and spread out, producing thousands of nauplii and multiple stages of juveniles.
Use live amphipods to seed your reef tank and sump/Refugium. Once they get established and breeding in your system you will have a constant supply of zooplankton to feed your corals and fish. If you already have Macro algae growing in your sump, these pods will establish a breeding colony in the macros and your pump will periodically draw some pods out of the sump into your main tank; thereby scatter feeding corals and fish with live plankton throughout the day.
Live Saltwater Amphipods are a hardy species that we have adapted, through many generations of culturing, to home aquarium conditions.
ReviewsWendell PerkinsI ordered amphipods and they showed up when I had expected them. They were the size I thought I was getting. They were healthy and there were more than I had paid for.
