In business since 2003…..

Ocean Pods is a unique product for the hobbyist. It is a combination of 3 species of copepods for starting or restocking your live rock copepod populations.

Ocean Pods are 100% aquacultured copepods that have been field-tested with multiple species of fish and invertebrates to ensure that there are not harmful interactions with your tank inhabitants.

They can be added directly to your tank and make a great live food for mandarin gobies, seahorses, pipefish, yellow tangs, clownfish, scooter blennies, corals, ornamental shrimp and many more species enjoyed by reef enthusiasts.

This business grew out of a passion for copepods.   I have spent the last 16 years trying to develop reliable methods for the mass culture of copepods.  I have certainly had some ups and downs, but now I am proud to offer these pure cultures to researchers and hobbyists alike.  Copepods can hold the key to the development of more species of fish for aquaculture and ornamental use alike.  Please feel free to email me with questions about the product, or if you have suggestions on future species.
