Rock Out with Tigger-Pods®

(Live Tigriopus californicus copepods)

Yes, we do groove on warm water!

COPEPODS ARE ON SALE!   Choose an offer below...

 

Contrary to what some say, we'll rock out in your warm reef tank. In fact, warmer water revs up our metabolism and reproductive rate. As West Coast North America natives, we hang out and jam in the splash zone—from the cool water of Washington State to the toasty waters of Mexico. Fans have even seen us as far south as Honduras!

Why we're such a hit with fans

COPEPODS ARE ON SALE!   Choose an offer below...

 

Our fans, including SPS coral and finicky fish like mandarin and pipefish, love us for our good looks and nutritional profile. We're significantly larger rockers (1000-1500 microns) than most cope-dudes that come with live rock (300-500 microns), so we're a great addition to any tank.

We were fed on Reef Nutrition's own highly nutritious marine microalgae grown in their bio-secure facility before we hit the road to go on tour. We're amped up, ready to give your fish and coral a healthy boost!

Me and my fellow Tigger-Pods culture well with the right scene (place to hide in a sump, refugium or separate tank; and nourishing food like Reef Nutrition's Phyto-Feast). When we're not busy playing for our fans, we're very prolific ‐ we breed rapidly, producing hundreds of eggs per female!

"Unlike most other companies, Reef Nutrition's bottles are chock-full of pods! Both their Tigger-Pods (Tigriopus californicus) and Apex-Pods (Apocyclops panamensis) bottles are full of active and healthy looking pods! The density makes it possible for me to keep many pod-eaters going. I dosed Apex-Pods and Tigger-Pods in my 55-gallon shallow reef 4 months ago, and still, every night I see hundreds of pods all over my glass! Reef Nutrition's copepods add extra life into my tank!"

WHY CULTURING IS COOL

spacer

Get your culture on!

The reality is, we rotifers have a short but sweet life span in common retail packaging, and that's why you don't see us rocking out at your neighborhood aquarium store. Culturing little gals like us at home is a great idea because it will provide you with a consistent source of nutrition for your animals—that's music to your ears, right?

RGcomplete

Rock on with Apex-Pods®

(Live Apocyclops panamensis copepods)
We are Reef Nutrition's newest reef rock stars, Apex-Pods™ (Apocyclops panamensis)—100% aquacultured copepods. And we got the moves! We swim upwards in a stimulating, jerky dance that fish and hobbyists find irresistible. Here are many reasons you want us in your tank:

Irresistible to finicky eaters

COPEPODS ARE ON SALE!   Choose an offer below...

 

Our fans include finicky fish and invertebrates such as mandarins, pipefish, anthias, wrasses, SPS, LPS and soft corals, and other filter feeders. They love us for our good looks, nutritional profile, and small size. We're significantly smaller than T. californicus copepods (stage 1 nauplii are approximately 70 microns; adults are approximately 600 to 700 microns —compared to T. californicus adults that are 1000-1500 microns).

We play a very special role in every tank

COPEPODS ARE ON SALE!   Choose an offer below...

 

Many reef rock stars could care less about housekeeping, but we like a clean and tidy tank! We play an important role in the tank ecosystem as detritivores: We groove on consuming decaying organic waste left behind by other organisms, diatoms and other nuisance algae. We are also very hardy, and tolerate a wide range of salinity and temperature. We can really rock a variety of tank venues.
