Tisbe biminensis copepods are small copepods that require a light to be shown at the bottom of the bottle to see them. We send 120-300 micron adults per bottle. Tisbe copepods are a moderate production copepod, needing 2-3 weeks before harvesting. Tisbe pods will consume large amounts of phytoplankton while culturing, you'll often notice you'll have to feed them 4-5 times a week once your population takes off. If you are culturing in a smaller vessel, let's say a 1 gallon mason jar, you'll want to feed your Tisbe pods twice a day to avoid cannibalism inside the culture. They also make for a great clean up crew in your reef aquarium, they are bottom dwellers and love to hide in the rocks making them hard for small to medium fish to eat. (mandarins gobys love hunting these guys down) Tisbe copepods are loaded with high nutritional content when fed live phytoplankton.

In an 8 ounce bottle there are thousands of pods. If you want to see this weeks harvest before you order, send a text or email and we will send you the video of the bottles that have been packed for shipping. Each bottle is packed the week of shipping, we do not ship the previous weeks bottles out.

I have my culture I already started and running

The pods were 100% alive they were kicking and screaming in the bottle already I added a little bit of Fido enough to tint the water and they've been getting drunk on phytoplankton for the last two and a half days very pleased with my purchase Thank you Reef legends!

Great pods... the man I spoke with I had a question. His name is Skylar... he educated me to what type of pods I needed based in what they were for it ended up saving me money. But product was gut loaded and many many visible pods with small amount of phyto tinting the bottle

Great amount of pods per oz.. much more visible and active and they don't come starved. There is a tint of phyto in the live pods, so if you're using the bottles to feed they are gut loaded.... no bad odor great bottle actually holds air when you squeeze..... thanks again for great pods 👍
