I received my order of amphipods, along with some other livestock. This is not the first time I have ordered from Aquaculture Nursery Farms. I have always been satisfied with what I received, and this order was no different. The 500 amphipods were all healthy and very much alive. I would expect to have at least a very small percentage of dead amphipods out of 500, but I could not find a single dead one in the bunch. This included two that were stuck in the neck of the bag above where it was sealed! As usual, everything was high quality and I most certainly will not hesitate to order again.

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.
Super pleased with the pods I just received. I’m lol certainly order again when the need arises.
Lots of Pods, very active. Great prices but shipping is a little expensive. Thanks
Great packaging job with this shipment. Although it was supposed to be arriving the next day before noon, it arrived one day later. The pods were still active and their shipping water smelled fine.
Awesome quality amphipods. I love how easy they are to add to my tanks and how responsive my fish are to the new critters to hunt.
This is my third order of these guys and man will I keep on buying. Great price, they arrive very lively and go nuts immediately after putting them in the water. They keep my wrasse’s amused and produce decent amounts of offspring down in the sump. Couldn’t recommend more
These guys are a lot bigger than I have seen. There is also various sizes but the big guys are huge!
Best deal I ever gotten on pods. Pirce might be a bit high. But you actually get the amount of pods you pick. unlike some places when you buy 1000 and only get what looks like 200. I'm very happy with them and will continue to order from rusalty every time.
First time ordering with Rusalty. Very pleased with packaging. All amphipods were alive and active and it appeared to contain more than what was ordered. I had a quick question before introducing them into my aquarium, and customer support answered my question promptly. I would highly recommend Rusalty and look forward to doing business with them in the future!
I truly appreciate the amphipods from RUsalty. They arrive well packed and in great shape.
this has been my go-to place for pods.tried them all and here is where i go.always bagfuls of healthy, lively pods.
I got these to supplement mysis shrimp for my cuttlefish, since these are much cheaper and easier to keep alive in my opinion. The cuttlefish eat them up and are doing well so far. Very fun to watch.
Wow, there were a lot of seemingly clean critters scurrying around in the bag! Dumped them in our display tank at night and watched them swarm away into our live rock. Hard to find these guys, very happy with our purchase.
the amphipods got here in time, my seahorse treated like a feast and the went after them fast. all living and thriving. Thank you fro a great price and quick shipment and a quality product.
99% of the pods survived the trip, very happy and so are my fish!
Wow! This was the first time in getting live Amphipods for my reef tank and the experience was great! I wanted free delivery but I guess you can't get everything. I went with the 2 day delivery to save money and all Amphipods received were alive. I order 250 and after shipping costs it was still a great deal. Package came with two ice packs and double packaged in reflectant bubble pack, sweat. Looking forward to the my next order. Chow.
I have a tank full of sea horses that loved the amphipods i got from you guys
Great little active swimmers and a of sizes
These guys are not the invisible pods you get in a jar. All tank inhabitants love them and I use a Turkey Baster to guide them into the rockwork every 3 or 4 months.
very efficient customer support
Once again, a great bag of amphipods. While the pods acclimated they were very active. I see them on my reef today, dodging the mandarin that's hunting them.
they all arived in timely fasion the count was right on mayby afew more all alive and kicken will need to get more before i can get some seahorses will most likely get some live missid shrimp first tank is empty except for live rock pods lots of macroalge 30 gal. tank
recived in great shape alive and kicking will order more soon
All were alive and large size even with FedEx messing up and delivered late!
Excellent product. Alive and active.
Productz are awesome..Great prices Great customer services..
Lots of pods. I will order from them again.
Great communication, follow up and quality product
Best deal I found on amphipods. For what I paid for 1200 amphipods here I could only get 100 on Amazon for the same price. Everything shipped well and I am happy with my purchase. But with confidence!
Arrived alive in below zero outside temperatures!
They came in on time and alive. Very active
Arrived in great condition. Jumping around like fleas.
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..
Were very active and healthy.
arrived 100% alive and healthy; my fish all love to eat them!
Arrived on time, packaged well, and alive! Great product!
Arrived alive and fast shipping.
All arrived alive and well. Excellent food for seahorses
Got it quick in two days free shipping. Got what I bought amphipods and they were decent size
Excellent. Arrived alive. My seahorses are in heaven. I put some in refugium and some in main tank for the seahorses to have a treat. Will add the rest tonight after lights out. Will definitely order again
Excellent. Arrived alive. My seahorses are in heaven. I put some in live amphipods for sale in my refugium and some in main tank for the seahorses to have a treat. Will add the rest tonight after lights out. Will definitely order Rusalty Amphipods again.
These pods arrive hungry and breed rapidly. My 150 FOWLR never looked so good. Oh and the fish love them too.
Product came with lots of life, shipped on the hottest week of the year. Very happy, and my marine betta's full stomach thanks you.
In contrast.to the other part of my order, these pods are big and active. A good value.
Thank for a quick delivery a real quality product, for the moment in aded the to my aquarium i can see a difference. thank you
Large and plentiful
can't say enough how prefect this was. Great size and very healthy, put some in my display and refrudiguim.
great price and fast shipping
Took me so long to catch these little buggers but man they are lively. So many care I know I got more than 500. This is awesome batch and sweet deal. Great job and my fish and corals love it.
Everything arrived alive and super quickly. Great customer service.
Best source for healthy amphipods. The 2000 I received all seemed hungry when I added them to the refurium.
great size health and quantity
There as many as promised. They were extremely active and I saw no DOA
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.
Showed up fat, healthy, and active as usual.
100% Alive. Ive never seen this. Im lucky if I get 75%. I littery caught every swimming pod. I just swirled the water a little and more swam. I'll definately remain a customer here. Thanks
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.
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.
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.
I just recieved my order..I am very happy .thanks for your promptness ..will be ordering from you again..
I just recieved my order and I am very happy....box was well packaged and my pods where alive ...great job guys .will definitely or from you again......
Arrived in excellent shape, healthy and lively. Generous amount in all sizes that immediately went to work after acclimation. Will order again.
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.
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.
This is the second time I’ve ordered and both orders have been smooth. I’ll order again any day.
Very fast, all healthy !
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! :)
Awesome huge pods! 100% alive
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 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.
