    If you're not ready to use your tisbe or apo copepods once you receive them you can store them by removing the cap and storing them at room temperature out of direct sunlight.

    For Rotifers, and Tig pods remove the cap and store them in the fridge until ready.

    Tisbe copepods reproduce extremely well in a reef tank. Keep in mind that the ability to establish a population depends on reproduction exceeding predation. Therefore if you have a lot of predation based on your reef tank stock, it's important to introduce an adequate amount.

    The best time to introduce copepods is once the tank inhabitants are not very active. This would be once the lights are off after they have been fed heavily. They can be introduce into the display, back chamber of an all in one, or in a refugium.

    No problem, just here over here and reach out to us and we'll get back to you with the best approach to keeping your reef thriving.

    Make sure to give us enough information about your tank.
