Make your corals think they never left the ocean with Dinkins Aquatic Gardens Live Phyto & Pods! We offer the following products:

Live Phyto Blend - Feed your corals and your microfauna with our blend of six different species of live phyto to provide the optimal nutritional profile for your reef. You wouldn't feed your kids exclusively one type of food - why would you feed your reef only one or two species of phyto?

Reef Snacklebox - Three species of copepods and a generous helping of rotifers feed your corals and finicky fish. The Tigriopus, Apocyclops, and Tisbe pods will also colonize your refugium and rocks, cleaning up the detritus that gets stuck in hard-to-reach areas.

Snacklepack Combo - Maximize your tank's biodiversity by combining a 16 ounce Reef Snacklebox with a 16 ounce bottle of Live Phyto Blend.

Pick Your Pods 2-Pack - Pick two bottles of our single-species copepods (choose from Tigriopus, Apocyclops, and Tisbe). Feel free to mix-and-match, or just order two bottles of your favorite!

I looked on the website and didn't see anything about the density of the copepods in each bottle.

Good question! I'm working on perfecting a counting technique where I take several small samples, count the pods in each sample, and extrapolate. But to be honest, I haven't quite perfected it yet and I don't want to give misleading information. I'll say that we aim for several thousand pods in each bottle, and try for 5k+ in the Snacklebox. Three people have to approve every bottle before we ship it out (myself, my wife, and my oldest son), and there's an entire "graveyard" box of empty bottles* where one of us didn't think the density was sufficient and ordered it remade.

We have a very large number of pods under production, so we don't want to be stingy. Plus, we've worked very hard to build our reputation and wouldn't want a "weak" bottle of pods to tank it. To date, we've received very positive feedback. If you'd like to order some and see for yourself, we do offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. No hoops, no BS, just total satisfaction or your money back.

*Don't worry, we wash and reuse them.

Thank-you for getting back to me so fast.
I understand it would be difficult to give a accurate count.
As a older person whose eyes don't work like they use to, I have rely on posted numbers. ( been using a magnifying glass for more than just a few years for many tasks).

I completely understand! My eyes aren't quite what they used to be either; I have to use reading glasses while lighting the bottle from underneath. They're tiny little creatures!

I'm so glad to see your subscription! We'll get that shipped out to you Monday via UPS Two Day. It definitely won't smell like death - the only way that happens is if it actually dies in transit. It will probably smell pretty "gross" (the brown algae we use tends to smell sickly sweet) but definitely not like death!

Hi,

Maybe I missed it on your website but where in DFW are you located? And do you allow pick-up?

Thanks

We're in Flower Mound and would be happy for you to swing by and pick some up! Just shoot me a PM and we can arrange it.

I have been amazed at what pods do for a tank, They are the ultimate clean up crew!

I agree completely! When I started adding pods to our reef tank, everything started settling nicely and all the cyano is gone - either eaten or simply out-competed!
