***Due to the risk of the copepods being stuck in transit on a Sunday, we do not ship live pods on Thursdays or Fridays. If we receive an order on these days, your order will be placed in the mail first thing Monday morning. This is done to protect the quality of the pods and deliver top quality live products to our valued customers. Thank you for understanding!***
This kit contains a dense, active population of Tisbe biminiensis. This combo can be used to raise and feed hundreds of thousands of copepods! Creating a continuous supply of copepods is easy to do with this professional aquaculture kit. Simply add copepods to prepared seawater (1.020-1.026 SG salinity) using items included in the kit. The kit will include a comprehensive manual on culturing phytoplankton to feed the copepods. Once the copepods are in their new home (a tank or bucket) use an aquarium air pump to very gently agitate the water with bubbles (2-5 bubbles per second) and keep the temperature around 75 degrees. No special light is necessary or recommended; simple room lighting is perfect. Replace the water every month or so with fresh clean seawater. Check YouTube for harvesting techniques and tips. It really is that easy!
