Dr.G's Live Tiger Pods - Copepods
Today we will speak about our Live Tiger Pods.
We recently launch a home video of our Pods, that can be watched here:
Dr. G's Live Copepods are a fundamental part of the marine ecosystem - zooplankton food. These Live Tiger Copepods, constitute one of the greatest sources of protein in the ocean.
Dr.G's Tiger Pods / Tiger Copepods are "Alive", Our Tiger Pods are Excellent live food source for finicky eaters such as mandarin gobies, sea horses, watchman gobies, lawnmower & scooter blennies.
All species in your tank will benefit with the addition of Live Tiger Copepods. Add them to your system with lights off, so they make it to the safety of the rocks, where they will reproduce and populate your tank, until they get eaten by your hungry pets. No preservatives or additives.
At Dr.G's we care for our Live Tiger Pods, they are packed Gut Loaded, and we even add a generous amount of our Phytoplankton to each bottle, so they arrive healthy and well fed - unlike some other brands, which pack their Pods with no food and are starved just to increase shelf life.
Our Tiger Pods tanks run at South Florida temperatures, with no chillers, so our tank water is always around 80 F, and in mid afternoons even higher. Our Tiger Pods thrive at this high temperatures, which makes them perfect for the average aquarium that runs average temperatures between 70 to 80 F.
We do recommend that while in transit to you, and while at LFS, they are stored in a Refrigerator and with the lids open or for the LFS personnel to open the lids daily for a few minutes to allow oxygen to enter the bottle.
Live Copepods have two different modes of propulsion - Gliding and jerking-movements that stimulate feeding responses. Dr. G's Live Copepods are the best food for fish that will only eat live foods. Seahorses, Mandarins, Dragonets, Blennies, Pipe Fish all depend on copepods for survival. Other fish, like Anthias, Fire Fish, Chromis,Butterfly Fish, Angelfish, Gobies, Wrasses, Shrimp, Crabs, Anemones and Stars all benefit. Copepod eggs and larval stages are food for both stony and soft corals such as Acropora, Black Coral, Lace Coral, Gorgonians, Chili Coral, Carnation Coral, Sun Corals, LPS Corals etc. Dr. G's Live Copepods are also great for marine aquariums with live rock.
Live Copepods will reproduce on the tank's refugium, boosting energy and nutrient flux-great importance to the well-being of the aquaria.
Dosage: Dr. G's Live Copepods are raised in normal ocean salinity and won't have osmotic shock when added to your marine tanks. We suggest you compare this bottle's salinity to your tank, if you find a variation greater than 0.004 SG, use 'standard acclimation procedures'.
Feeding your Copepods: These Live Copepods have been raised by feeding both Dr. G's Rotifers and Dr. G's Phytoplankton. To maintain Copepod population in your system, we suggest you continue to add these products 3-4 times a week.
Ingredients: Dr.G's Live Copepods are living zooplankton, have no preservatives or additives and are 100% Natural. Storage: Dr.G's Copepods will LIVE up to 2 weeks at room temperature and longer if refrigerated. Shake the bottle once a day to prevent the (included) Phytoplankton (which feed them) from falling out of suspension.
Warning: Not for Human consumption. For Aquarium Use Only. Keep out of reach of children.
