A breeding colony of our Amphipods can produce many baby pods per week.
Amphipods make an excellent micro cleanup crew. Also serve as a valuable live fish food source of live zooplankton for fish and corals.
Amphipods feed on nuisance algae, dead decaying algae, leftover food and fish waste. these pods will constantly be grazing on your live rocks & sand bottom. Amphipod pods love to setup their breeding colonies in macro algae. We have been aquaculturing these pods for a number of years here in Okeechobee, Florida. Live Amphipods in your tank will multiply rapidly and spread out, producing thousands of nauplii and multiple stages of juvenile amphipods.
Amphipods make an excellent live fish food source for Seahorse food, Mandarins, Dragonettes, and many other fish that feed on live zooplankton. 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 macro algae and your pump will periodically draw some pods out of the sump into your main tank; thereby scatter feeding corals and fish with live amphipods plankton throughout the day.
Our Amphipods are a hardy species that we have adapted, through many generations of culturing, to home aquarium conditions.
