Interesting- I though Rotifers were the preferred food source for eg larval clowns etc, but I guess I’ve got some reading to do.I'm not culturing them currently, but yes...that is the intention. Adult Apocyclops (and many other pods, for that matter) are similar in size or slightly larger than baby brine shrimp nauplii and thus are too large for most marine fish and invertebrate larvae at first; however, they produce nauplii that are often less than 100 microns long (significantly smaller than most rotifers) and these are the preferred prey of many marine larvae due to their sheer abundance and nutritional value. Sadly, culturing them en masse in captivity is not so easy...
