Why add Copepods to your Aquarium?
Our Freshwater Copepods Calanoida are popular among professional aquarists, breeders, and hobbyists alike those who are attempting to keep particularly difficult species such as the mandarin dragonet, scooter blenny, clownfish fry, dotty backs, bettas, and many others.
They are also popular with hobbyists who want to breed both marine and freshwater species in captivity. This was our aim from the beginning, to allow the fish keepers to be able to breed the fish they like and sell to other interested people without having to destroy the natural habitat of these colourful and interesting aquariums. A single aquarium copepod may eat from 11,000 to 373,000 diatoms in 24 hours and so are very useful along with rotifers to control a diatom outbreak in the aquarium.
