We process orders Monday through Wednesday. In addition orders are shipped via FedEx though various services; FedEx Overnight, Fedex 2 Day Shipping, and Fedex Home Delivery or Ground for commercial addresses.

Our bottles are FDA approved for food contact, strong, lightweight, and completely recyclable. Rest assured keeping your reef adequately fed is environmentally friendly.

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.

    Awesome as always

    Once again I’m overjoyed with the quality of PYR’s products. The pods arrived alive and happy as did the Phyto. I keep waiting for FedEx to screw the delivery up, I hate FedEx, but so far no issues. I only live a few hours away from the PYR facility and this makes for a quick delivery. I’m also very happy with the packaging of the product. The bottles are always tightly secured to keep them from rattling around the box during shipping and the cool packs are always still cool when I open the box. The last shipment I received was on a day that was over 100 degrees and when I opened the foam container I could feel cool air pouring out! Awesome! I’m still satisfied and I’m still a very happy customer.

    Tisbe pods

    Ordered 2 bottles of Tisbe pods they arrived in 2 days well packaged and very lively. Added both bottles to my tank and the fish went crazy. Pods are a great size you can actually see them hopping around the rock work. Great product for a great price! Ive said it before and Ill say it again, Pod Your Reef puts Algea Barn to shame! Thank you for what you do and you will be my go to for as long as I stay in the hobby.
