Our freshwater refugium pack contains all the healthy plankton your freshwater tank should require. Our freshwater Amphipods are typically less than 10 millimetres long.
They are among the more beneficial freshwater invertebrates we can introduce to our freshwater aquariums and copepods, daphnia, and MicroMagic 4 freshwater species live algae and Australian native snails.
Aquatic Live Food’s supply of amphipods, copepods and daphnia are all grazers of microalgae and macroalgae.
This mix will help control algae growth that might otherwise become an issue. The copepods, daphnia, amphipods and snails are beneficial in the main tank and the refugium.
Please use only captive-bred organisms in your reef aquarium. When the female amphipod is mature, she will then bear a marsupium or brood pouch. This holds her eggs while they are fertilized and until the young are ready to hatch.
Once the female amphipod ages, she will produce more eggs in each brood.
Amphipods have no larval stages; the eggs hatch directly into a juvenile form, and sexual maturity is generally reached after six moults. They should be either placed in the refugium or filter floss compartment to start your culture.
