    I found this when I moved some of my live rock. Is it ok to put it back in the tank? Or is it bad? It moves like a shrimp and worm if that makes sense, almost on its side when I'm watching it. Did not float around the tank when it first came out. It stayed near the sand bottom.

    So I went to clean the front glass on my tank today and noticed a bunch of red dots on one end of my tank. Upon further inspection they appear to be copepods. I haven't added any to my tank and haven't added anything they can hitch a ride on to lately so I'm not sure where they came from...

    When we do water changes, we must get rid of some copepods, right? Are we just assuming that enough are left to repopulate?

    I have an old Emperor HOB filter that works well. My question is could I use it to grow a seeded batch of copepods in it a d what would I put in it for them to grow in,(chaeto or something similar) or would there be to much flow and just wash them out? Any ideas are welcome

    I was wondering if copepods are good to feed to clownfish and anemones?

    In my previous post, I mentioned setting up a fuge basket for a Biocube 29. In the fuge basket, I will have some macro algae, haven't decided a species yet, and plan to add copepods as well. Will the copepods in the fuge pass into the display through the return pump? Stupid question but I'm...
