As a fellow reefer I love it when I'm cleaning my tank and I find a little water flea flitting across my hand. In the 80's when I was first in the hobby, either pods weren't available or at least the LFS that I visited in Omaha and Denver didn't promote them very well, but I had amphipods (Water Fleas lol) introduced through Florida live rock. Fast forward to 2021 when I got back into the hobby, and they were all the rage. I stocked my tanks with a blend of Amphipods and Copepods but found that it's pretty expensive to purchase everything you want every week, month etc. So I set out to culture my own. over time I kept increasing my vessel size and culturing skills. Then I started to sell some product here on R2R. As per their market place rules, once I determined that I was going to sell with consistency, I was considered a Vendor vs an occasional classified ad customer lol. So I sat down with my wife and we discussed it and agreed to pay for a sponsorship and see if I could make a little extra money.
With Sherry's support and encouragement we set out to determine what we could do to boost our business to cover the additional cost, without increasing our prices. I was in retail management for 14+ years and know there are two ways to increase profits, higher prices or higher volume. Since I recognize that it can get really expensive buying these products I'm determined to offer the greatest value possible. I was running into Phyto shortages for the pod production if I had a good week of orders so I upgraded to 6.8 gallon vessels vs the 5 gallon I had been using. Last week I finally had phyto for me to use after shipping and prepping the pods but barely and since many of our customers are already becoming repeat customers we knew we need to do something different. even if we sold out at this level it isn't enough to cover the added sponsorship expense after purchasing salt (takes a lot of salt), shipping supplies, shipping fees, etc. so we decided to step up our game. And that is how it came to life.
