Hey everyone, so I was gifted some copepods and phytoplankton, but can't use them for probably about a month. Is there a way to keep them alive in a glass jar or something for that long? I was even thinking maybe mixing up some salt in a 5g bucket and leave the heater and mixing pump running and just add the copepods to it then feed them the phytoplankton daily. If I did this, would the strong 1200gph mixing pump hurt or kill the pods? Same for the 100 watt Jager heater?

I would follow the directions in the sticky thread from the fish forum, this would be what you need
