10ml Live copepods FRESHWATER Cyclops s. Culture + food
These were an exciting suprise I found while searching for daphnia in SoCal duck ponds. i have been culturing it for almost a year now, making sure I can call it an isolated strain and disease/parasite free. 10ml volume of a live food most of you have likely not yet tried or seen and your fish will love you for. Live freshwater cyclops cultures, not easy to find unlike the marine cyclops which will not survive a freshwater tank for long
-extremely hardy, and small fish frenzy for them the same way they do for baby brine shrimp. Females produce millions of eggs. Can be used to seed a tank, start a culture, or to simply feed. I have isolated cultures ready to go and can collect larger amounts where I got them from originally for anyone looking for bulk, the larger wild collected batches can come with ostracods (seed shrimp) & baby ghost shrimp as well, or I can spend a few days isolating, up to y’all. I can share pics and videos of these lil guys zipping around too, hit me up with any questions on my IG reels. These will be shipped *COOLED*. -NOT HEATED- -these pods are extremely temperature tolerant and go into a state of hibernation when cold. I ship them in clean water with an ice pack to get them as slowed as possible for the trip to you, causing them to consume less oxygen in the sealed bottle, allowing a much greater survival rate during transit. If you don’t see any movement when they arrive, just leave them out in room temp (60°+ and no higher than 90° ideally) and you’ll see them start jumping around pretty quickly. Pop the cap as soon as you get them to allow oxygen back in. A small piece of aquatic vegetation may or may not be sent along depending on how much I have at the time you buy. Ill also send a bag of spirulina to feed to them for anyone trying to culture them out to feed long term. Contact me with any DOA and I'll get ya taken care of =)
** these little creatures are borderline impossible to count but I try to eyeball at least 30-50 per 10ml bottle. All bottles will have pregnant females included.
