About Live Copepods
If you want the pleasure of owning an aquarium with beautifully coloured fish and bright coral, then there is a good chance that you will also need to purchase some live copepods to keep everything fed. Copepods are tiny crustaceans that live in fresh water and saltwater. On average, they are about 1 to 2 mm long and many aquatic species feed on them. The fish and coral are much healthier when you keep them on their natural diet of live bait. You must also feed the live copepods to keep them alive before feeding them to your tank. Generally, owners purchase thousands of copepods at a time and keep them in a separate tank. They then supply the live bait to their aquarium as needed. In the meantime, you need zooplankton to feed to the copepods in the separate tank. Thankfully, you can get all of the supplies you need on eBay to keep your aquarium pets alive and healthy.
