The only question i have atm is tips on cultivating copepods in bottles and stocking for a 36 gal, i l9ve wrasses already have a six line in my 15 gal along with 2 clownfish and a bunch of corals
Welcome to R2R! Tons of videos on Youtube about cultivating copepods. I'd check there first. You can always just order pods from Algaebarn.

Cultivating them is actually kind of fun (for me atleast lol) But, Its sooo easy. Make sure you have some healthy phytoplankton cultures readily available to feed them. Just like our tanks Pods need water changes too. Once a week is perfect.
Get your self cheese cloth, i think they make them in net forms too. Strain em, change the water, add new phyto. Bubbler is needed but a very slow rate of bubbles. room temperature is fine from what i found in my own experience.
