BUY ANY COPEPOD BUFFET AND GET AN EQUAL SIZE OF OUR HARPA PODS FOR 50% OFF!!

BOX AD BOGO.png

As previously discussed we have been culturing a copepod from the genus Harpacticoida that according to a University Researcher that we shipped a sample to are closely related to the Tisbe biminiensis. These little guys are voracious eaters and reproduce like crazy in normal aquarium environments. Give your tank an explosion of pods by combining these high density copepods with any of our mixed copepod blends.

GET YOUR PODS IN A COMBO AND SAVE EVEN MORE!!

Purchase any size of either Blended, Premium, Colossal, or Titanic Copepod Buffets, add the same size Harpa Pods to your order and they will be discounted 50% at checkout. These little scavengers are nearly microscopic and will get into the tiniest of crevices eliminating nuisance algae to the root. Due to their active reproduction, these cultures are more densely populated, thus you will be receiving more than twice the pods with this offer.

We ship all services Monday/Tuesday, 2 Day and overnight Wednesday and Overnight only on Thursday.

NO CODES NEEDED

Our Reef2Reef community is absolutely wonderful and we are so grateful to be a part of it. We are always looking for ways to grow and improve our business and product offerings, and it is with extreme pleasure that we announce the addition of THREE new species of copepods available this week. If we don’t get them in the website and you are interested, PM us and we will get you set up.

We now have Parvo, Pseudo, and Acartia. Not the puppy disease, not pseudo science, or pseudo nutrition, but real live nutritional additions to your saltwater tank and it’s biome, and you can get it “a la cartia” or in our newest products. POD BUFFET is our newest category, and you can get it in four options.

BLENDED POD BUFFET with a custom blend of our main copepods (Tigriopus, Tisbe, Apocyclops) or try our PREMIUM POD BUFFET with the addition of rotifers. Newly added COLOSSAL POD BUFFET with a custom blend of all six or our copepods or upsize to our TITANIC POD BUFFET with the addition of rotifers (and fear not, the rotifers do not reduce the pod density as we harvest, sieve and then rinse straight in to the premixed pods) for an added bonus to your feather dusters, clams, Zoas, softies and more.

So if you buy the gallon. Do you pour it all at once or over a few days? I have a 165 gallon system. Or what would be a good size to seed my tank with?

I would add the full gallon all at once. Do this at least an hour after lights out so as not to create a feeding frenzy allowing for the copepods to find shelter increasing their chance to establish a colony in your tank. This can happen with the first addition, or take two to three. Many factors affect this such as how heavily they are hunted and water quality. At 165 you could go with the gallon or 1/2 gallon (obviously more is better, but some is way better than none). Then observe with a light after dark every so often and if pods are present then great if not add some more in a month. If you see pods, but they seem to be less as you watch then think about adding more. Either size you chose to hit with first, you can probably add the 1/2 gallon as a follow up if needed. I dose each week splitting my remaining harvest between my 6 tanks. Some weeks it is almost none other weeks I might have 16-32 Oz for each as I always pull an extra gallon or two incase I get last minute orders.

So @Ocean_Queenie has had her culture going for 7 day now and it is looking really good. Not quotes done, but with losing air to her Rhodosomas on the first night she is super pleased. Here is what it is looking like now.

IMG_6483.jpeg


Notice the pod water is really light, so she poured a little water through a sieve and man was she impressed with the number of Apocyclops pods she has grown. She added them back and added a little more phyto. And this is what it looks like with the lights on.


IMG_6492.jpeg

Notice how much lighter the phyto looks when lit. You have to turn the lights off to check it as you can see how dark it is in the first picture. She is going to split and restart her phyto when we get back from picking up our daughter from school.

Here is a peek at her pods.

So the debate is on, does @Ocean_Queenie keep her phyto she harvests to dose to a tank? She will have to keep a portion to feed her Apocyclops copepods because she has decided to keep her cultures going. So please give us your vote in the comments!!

Does my wife

A. Sell her phytoplankton?

B. Give it away as a gift with purchase?

C. Use it to dose our Red Sea 350?

D. Evaporate it and make some health/nutrition product?

I have a 25 gallon tank with a Mandrian Goby like the one pictured in your ad, it has been alive for years and I was able to acquire it, problem is he is getting skinny.
What should I feed him and how often?
Does one just get a bottle monthly?
Weekly?
Thanks in advance

Nebraska. For vowels.
Frequency depends on many things. I would dose with maybe a 16 Oz of blended. If you have filter feeders jump up
To the premium for the rotifers. Dose at least one hour after lights off. The. Check every couple of nights with a flash light. When you see pods declining order more. Might be good to plan for a second dose
In 2 weeks. If you dose phytoplankton you have a better chance of establishing colonies. As you check them maybe weekly after the second dose you will get an idea of how well their population maintains. Just shine a light on the glass for a little while and see what gathers.

If you have softies, zoas, clams, feather dusters etc. dose about 2-3 ml per day of phyto. If not 1-2 ml per day, and if fish only 1 ml will suffice.

32 Oz phyto would last 30 some days at 25 ml per day.
