    So I was wanting to add some copepods and amphipods to my tank. I have done a little bit of research and looked at a few different places online that have them. Does anyone have any recommendations on places?I neglected my tank for quite a while and then moved into to a new house I moved into. I...

    Ok, so when I originally started my fish tank I had tons of amphipods and copepods. However, in the past couple of months I have not seen one of these on my rock at all. I have read where some people have added new LR to replenish the supply some. I do not want to add any LR due to I had tons of...

    So i must say i learn something new almost every day and this hobby is great! Today i found these little guys on my glass which seem to be either amphipods and copepods. Do i need to do anything to keep these guys in check or get a new fish to have them eaten? Are they beneficial to my tank?

    Here's the best I could do, I use to have a red slime infestation that is slowly going away. If you look at the top left corner of the pump, you'll see it on the glass

    I have the new 210g set up with the lights being added on Thursday. Had to fix a bulkhead leak...The LR has been in there without lighting for about two weeks now, which may not be a bad thing. With some of the rock having been soaked in fresh water to dispose of any remaining aptasia, etc, I...

    So i've had a colony of Amphipods in my pod farm since last year now and I don't really need the little guys anymore. Now that I have Blackworms, my fish aren't too interesting in anything other than wriggling threads of wormy meat.. The Amphipods are healthy and reproducing like champions...

    I have a healthy population of pods of several types but as of late I'm seeing more and more larger amphipods they are actually to big I think for my mandarin to eat. As usual they come out of hiding after lights out. I was thinking about a wrasse of some type but I have a BB tank so I don't...

    I've probably read 100 different opinions as to whether or not amphipods will munch on palys/zoas. From my recent personal experience, I am about 100% sure that an amphipod bloom in my tank is directly linked to my pitiful looking paly frag. I'm noticing that the polyps are missing tentacles...

    This guy scurried out from behind my power head during maintenance. Somehow, I managed to baste him up. My paranoid nature tells me it's not good. He's close to 2 cm!! Amphipod or holy terror??

    The tiny amphipods in your reef tank are great little detritus cleaners and fun to watch. How'd you like to have a couple of these in your tank? http://www.cnn.com/video/?hpt=hp_t3#/video/world/2012/02/04/pkg-tvnz-strange-sea-creatures-found-off-new-zealand.cnn (Sorry 'bout the...

    Hello everyone It has been a while since i posted up the first pics of my tank (I'd say about 3-4 months) so I thought I would share with you some results so far, and I have a few questions. 1. I bought a hairy toadstool a few days ago, and it has extended, but not the little hands, and...

    Hello ^-^ On 3rd week of cycling and I have thousands of these guys introduced from my live rock. Live rock came with some tube worms/coral and clams so I was direct feeding them phytoplankton. I know this is also a food source for the Amphipods/Copepods and since feeding their population has...
