Why buy copepods for my system?
are the second largest source of protein in the oceans, second only to
krill. They are the natural food of many fish in the oceans, especially
the early life stages.
fish will not eat non-living foods, and require live feeds such as
copepods and mysids. Some good examples are: mandarin gobies, any
seahorse species, scooter blennies, and early life stages of dottybacks,
chromis, tangs, flame angels, etc. Owner's of these type of fish
definitely need a consistent and reliable source of copepods for
tank systems do better when there are a variety of natural organisms to
maintain the ecological balance. The reason that "live rock" or "live
sand" is such a great item is that it provides a foundation for healthy
microorganisms that will allow the larger, more visible fish and
invertebrates to thrive.
time, the population of the invertebrates from the live rock will
naturally decline, as they are grazed by the corals, anemones, fish and
shrimp in the tank.

chance of survival.

often causes coral polyps to extend, but it does not directly feed most
stony corals. The benefit provided to stony corals by phytoplankton is
to increase the amount of zooplankton available for the corals to feed
on. Although copepods do not need to feed on live phytoplankton, the
fats that they store are determined by the fats that they consume (in
other words, they are what they eat). Therefore; higher quality
phytoplankton will produce more nutritious copepods.
phytoplankton will also cause the mysid population to bloom by
increasing the population of copepods that they feed on.
There is evidence
that soft corals, along with Goniopora and gorgonians may also benefit
from the direct consumption of phytoplankton.
