Easy to culture your own. All that’s needed is a 10 gal aquarium, air stone, and small filter. Amphipods will accept many different foods: Pulverized flake/ Pellets, ground-up algae, or Spirulina Powder. We use our Coral Extacy Amphipod Food to feed our Amphipod cultures.

Amphipods have a highly nutritious profile. Containing Omega 3 – 6 fatty acids and many more powerful vitamins and elements to provide the healthiest diet for captive kept marine animals of all types.

As 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 saltwater 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 hair 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 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.

Aquaculture Nursery Farms Amphipods for sale are a hardy species that we have adapted, through many generations of culturing, to home aquarium conditions.

2200 Amphipods! Great price!
Written by Matt M on 15th Jan 2021

Unfortunately FedEx was a day late so it came after 1:30 p.m. probably about 76 hours after they shipped it and every single one was alive it was about 20° outside it was wrapped very very well in a foil bubble wrap which was double wrapped and sealed and closed styrofoam on top sealed with the words this side up written on the top which it was actually delivered that side up every pod was alive and I am waiting currently until night time to put them in my aquarium at first I followed them to get them moving and then I added half of my aquarium water and I'm floating them with a little rigid air tubing in a gallon picture of water every single one is alive thank you very much again.. my second order and never will order anywhere else again knitting these weren't wild . NOT ONE INDY OTHER THEN AMPHIPODS not the iso and cope these are those little guys that you see crawling around your great plugs cleaning your rocks of algae and detritus. They are benathic I don't know if that's the correct spelling meaning they hover on the rocks services they don't swim freely only when the babies hatch very very many of the anthropods had egg sex attached to the chest area to their like a little orange ball in their what we would say chest area.. when those hatch they become tiny juveniles and are free swimming for a midnight snack if you want a mandarin goby these are perfect because the gobies like to grab the amphipods off of the rock surface especially between 6:00 and 9:00 p.m. when the lights are starting to go down thank you again it's nice to know I have a consistent source of clean non-parasitic pods for my aquarium at a very very reasonable price I was not given any or promised anything for this review this is just because it's nice to have a good business person with good morals nowadays it's hard to find that especially when people could price couch things especially with this pandemic going on..

I have ordered twice now and both times I received and abundance of healthy Amphipods of various sizes. Not sure if I got 500 or 1200 as advertised but what I did get were healthy. They vanish into the rock work quickly so I can it assume they stay alive.

Amphipods
Written by Rosie Conte on 13th Jan 2020

Nice packaging and came all alive. I can see the little critters moving about. I ordered amphipods specifically for mandrin goby but I found out that they don’t eat amphipods... Response: Yes Mandarin Goby does eat Amphipods as their natural prey, better than Tisbe Pods. The Mandarin fish eats the juvenile stages of the Amphipods. The adults are able to breed and multiply in your aquarium. For a continuous supply of live prey for your Mandarin.

Update
Written by Erica on 18th Jun 2019

I love the fact that these amphipods are aqua-cultured and not wild caught. I bought wild caught amphipods one time and the parasites infested my seahorses and the pathogens destroyed my tank. I had to sterilize my tank and recycle it. It was a nightmare and I can hardly believe my seahorses survived all that. So now I only buy aqua-cultured amphipods. I am so happy I found Rusalty.com! Their prices on aqua-cultured amphipods are the best I've found. The amphipods always arrive healthy and lively (choose next-day delivery). Now my seahorses can have fun hunting for amphipods in the rocks again, and I can enjoy watching them knowing that they are eating safe snacks! :)
