Overview

Acartia tonsa is very useful in ornamental aquaculture for feeding larval fish and crustaceans, seahorses and invertebrates such as corals. It is recommended that a separate culture be maintained from which to collect nauplii for adding directly to aquariums or to tanks of larval fish or crustaceans. Acartia's nutritional profile makes it ideal for feeding both photosynthetic and non-photosynthetic corals. It has wide ranging potential in developing techniques for breeding many ornamental species that cannot be raised with rotifers.

AlgaGenPods Acartia contains live Acartia tonsa in treated natural ocean water. Add 1 capful AlgaGenPods Acartia per 10 gallons directly to your main aquarium, sump, or refugium. For best results, acclimate and grow Acartia in a separate culture vessel and harvest as needed to feed the main aquarium.

Great food for:

  • Scallops
  • Fan Worms/Feather Dusters
  • Sponges
  • Tridacna Clams

    Copepods can also be grown outside of the aquarium system in a culture vessel and then harvested to feed the aquarium. Pod culture can be tricky, some are easier than others, but with some simple equipment and a little dedication, pod cultures are achievable.

    Copepods are best maintained at 78°F and at S.G. 1.020 with low light and very low aeration. We strongly recommend acclimating your copepods into your culture vessel or tank.

    Size: 1.0 - 1.2 mm. 8 oz bottle contains 100 to 200 pods and 16 oz bottle contains 200 to 300 pods.

    AlgaGenPods are guaranteed to arrive alive but are exempt from our extended guarantee after their arrival.
