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.

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.

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.

Very Happy With Rusalty Amphipods

I bought the amphipods for clean up crew and to offer my fish some variety in their diet. I'm very glad I bought them. They came promptly, well packaged, and arrived alive and quite lively. I will be buying again in the future.

Very fast, all healthy !

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! 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! :)

I 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.
