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.

Best source for healthy amphipods. The 2000 I received all seemed hungry when I added them to the refurium.

There as many as promised. They were extremely active and I saw no DOA

100% live arrival
Written by Frank McNally on 19th May 2020

A wide variety of sizes all arrived alive and active. A little tricky to release them all into a tank because they hang on tightly to your skin, a net or the piece of screen included in the bag.

I am happy to have finally found a supply of amphipods. The quickness of my shipment and the count has been excellent. I have purchased from other companies and have always questioned the count. My Wrasses and Mandarins are very happy. Thank you.

Written by Kristel V on 22nd Apr 2020

Healthy, lively, hardy! They even come on little screens that make adding them to your reef super easy. My husband and I were in the market for a new place to get pods and we're so impressed that we will be lifetime customers here. Packed very carefully and excellent customer service.

Healthy Amphipods Everytime
Written by John C Tyce on 16th Mar 2020

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.

Written by LUIS on 7th Feb 2020

Written by LUIS on 7th Feb 2020

I just recieved my order and I am very was well packaged and my pods where alive ...great job guys .will definitely or from you again......

Written by Gail R. on 16th Jan 2020

Arrived in excellent shape, healthy and lively. Generous amount in all sizes that immediately went to work after acclimation. Will order again.

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.

Very Happy With Rusalty Amphipods
Written by Bobbi Sloan on 27th Dec 2019

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.

Written by Jesse Evans on 16th Dec 2019

This is the second time I’ve ordered and both orders have been smooth. I’ll order again any day.

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! :)

Awesome huge pods! 100% alive

Written by Erica on 30th Apr 2019

Ordered next day delivery. The amphipods came looking lively and healthy. There were more than I ordered. Thank you! The seahorses are having fun hunting for the amphipods in the rocks. :)

I got exactly what I thought I was going to get
Written by Wendell Perkins on 17th Nov 2016

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.
