Copepods creepy crawlies


Recommended Posts

Once established and running for awhile tanks turn themselves into full ecosystems with microfauna and flora. With no predators at all they fauna begin to run amuck. I got into CPDs because Of this for my shrimp tank. Now my CPDs are some of my favorite fish. Very fun. 

Ps great video capture

That is excellent footage!!!

Here's the rest of us, struggling to get a tank with sufficient copepods to raise fry, and you are able to film them casually. 😅

Your Galaxy has an excellent camera!

Meet the new copepod destruction squad. They're a little skittish now but seem to be doing fine. My local big box store doesn't have a large selection of fish, but I found one that's been on my list - ember tetras - my first tetra! They had yellow and black guppies (fry, juvies, and adults) that were so adorable I can't stand it. I might go back for a trio of those.
