ReefPods Apocyclops
AlgaGen
  • Great detritus eater
  • Perfect for feeding mandarins
  • Can be stored at room temperature
    Description
    Apocyclops is a cyclopoid copepod that is found in tropical waters throughout the world. It is a very opportunistic, colonizing copepod that can reach very high densities. It feeds on phytoplankton, detritus, flake food and algae paste. This cyclopoid behaves a lot like a harpacticoid copepod in that there is a lot of activity on substrate but it also moves through the water column.

    Perfectly suited for the reef tank! Excellent food for mandarins, dragonettes, pipefishes, seahorses, leopard wrasses and anything that hunts for its food or picks off the substrate. The juveniles or nauplii will move through the water column making them an ideal candidate for a refugium or organisms that feed from the water column. The nauplii are very small, making them an appropriate LIVE food for even SPS corals. This CopePOD is a detritivore and will consume waste making it a perfect addition as the micro part of your clean-up crew. Apocyclops truly feeds your entire reef!

    Tech Notes
    Storage: This copepod will last 2-3 months in a bottle and can be stored in temperatures above 50F and below 85F with our recommendation to store at 75-80F.

    Use: Add to either the top or bottom tank when the lights are out. If culturing place in a clean container with clean, full strength, seawater; aerate lightly and tint the water with PhycoPure phytoplankton or sprinkle crumbled flake food. Feed less, more often.

    Recommended dosage: One 8 oz. package per 2 feet of tank. For example, a 4 long tank would need one 8 oz package on each end to allow for maximum colonization.
