Live Marine Copepods
Free Shipping. Express Overnight on live fish food.
We keep continuous live zooplankton cultures here at ANF, providing us with the means to experiment and raise Marine Fish, Invertebrates, Corals, Shrimp, Seahorses, and many other wondrous ocean reef life. These microscopic crustaceans: Copepods, Amphipods, Mysis (mysid) shrimp, etc... are instrumental in supporting life in the worlds’ oceans and reefs. They can be considered the second step in the food chain after phytoplankton (single cell algae). After the suns’ energy is converted through Photosynthesis by Phytoplankton, the Phytoplankton is then consumed by Zooplanktons. Zooplanktons, in turn, are consumed by the larger animal larvae and so on. It can be said that these steps in the food chain are essential for our human existence.
