Live Tisbe Pods(Tisbe biminiensis)
Tisbe Pods are a tropical copepod, a type of macro zooplankton diet that benefits many animals in a reef environment. Tisbe Pods are a popular food source for many animals, including but not limited to mandarin gobies and other dragonettes, most carnivorous reef fish, young seahorses soft corals & many hard corals. In addition to being a non-replaceable food source, Tisbe Pods provide an excellent service to your aquarium. As a colony flourishes in an aquarium, they are effective detritavores, eating excess detritus, fish food, some animal waste, etc., thus helping to the clean the aquarium.
Don’t be fooled by many cool & cold water copepods that are often offered. Cold water copepods are generally offered in the hobby due to extended bottle life under refrigeration. Unlike most coldwater copepods, Tisbe pods will survive & flourish in typical reef environments. This will reduce the need for countless repeat purchases as a breeding colony will colonize your aquarium over time, providing a natural, renewable food source.
