    Default Copepods

    0 Not allowed! is having an amazing deal on copepods. We got them using Amazon prime, and 1000 for $20. Best part it's buy one get one free. So I'm getting 2000 for $20.

    I'm trying to figure out the best way to introduce then into the system. My refugee is tiny...and with how many I'm getting...this is on my 29g setup of course.

    Any ideas?

    As you don't know the salinity of the water they are currently in, I would acclimate them to your tank just as you would a fish. That is most likely a little overkill, but I like to play it safe. After all, they still are a type of invert.

    As you got them all, you might as well add them to your set-up. At least in your aquarium, a good portion of them will have a fighting chance as compared to keeping them in the bottle. I would add as much to your refugium as you can, and the rest in your aquarium. You clowns will get some of them as they scamper around looking for a place to hide.

    Typically you would want to add pods to a aquarium when it is a little more established just to male sure there is more stuff in the set-up for them to eat, but they are also hardy creatures.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
