Species: Red Copepod Calamoecia Salina
Our special Australian Red Desert Copepods are much larger than many other copepods for sale on the Australian market. As they have no predators they are much slower than regular copepods. You can find these copepods on the surface mid-water and lazing on the bottom. They will survive at least 7 days in the fridge and once acclimated again they are ready to use.
All these red copepods need is a little live alga to keep their size. They are full of HUFA (highly unsaturated fatty acids), which is just what your aquaria need. Seahorses, pipefish, pygmy squid and sea moths love Australian desert copepods!
