please read the whole ad for all pertinent information on delivery/pickup/prices etc.

a blend of 4 different species from nauplii(baby, mostly invisible without a microscope) to adult(up to 2mm), all life stages. Both Pelagic (swimmers) and Benthic (rock crawlers)

Feed your dragonettes, seahorses, mandarins, pipefish, anthias wrasse, seed your refugium or ATS. The cornerstone of a solid clean up crew.

Tigriopus californicus - palegic(swimmer)
Large(relatively easy to see 1mm adults) , reproduce readily in your tank under many conditions. they can tolerate and thrive at any specific gravity your tank can throw at them... detritus and algae eater but will appreciate phytoplankton dosing.

Apocyclops panamensis - Adults are benthic (substrate attached) and juveniles are pelagic/planktonic
High nutrition value for fish and filter feeders.
As small as 45 micron juveniles meaning hard for even fish to see anything but adults. This means they can do their job and breed mostly unmolested. The adults are the largest of all the pods. Up to 2.5-3mm in length

Oithona colcarva - pelagic, detrivores
80-100 microns can reproduce and double every 4-7 days given enough food and optimal conditions

Tisbe biminiensis 70-900 microns, algae and detrivore eater.

$20 per 17oz portion
6000+ copepods

3 portions 48oz $50 ($16.66 per 17oz portion)
18,000+ copepods

4 portions for 64oz $65 ($16.25per 17oz portion)
24,000+ copepods

5 portions 30,000+ pods $80 ($16.00 per 17oz portion)

$15 per portion 6 or more

I recommend a minimum of one 17oz portion per 25 gallons total system volume to start a sustainable breeding colony. Release copepods after lights out, turn off your flow for 30 mins and pour them directly into DT or preferably refugium to allow them to hide.

Free delivery for orders over $50 within 25-30 miles of Escondido. no half portions no deliveries for orders under $50
Free pickup always available in Escondido.
I’m available afternoons and evenings/weekends

TEXT ME AT: 619.204.7184

Edit: I will entertain trades. I collect rarer zoas, eyphyllia, acans, other varied LPS.

Thanx for looking, Jay,Jared,Kilgore. Call me whatever you like, just don’t call me late to dinner.


Cash preferred, Venmo/PayPal 10% deposit or full payment required to schedule delivery.

I will check PM’s once in a while but you’ll get a quicker response via text

just completed a delivery to the oc. Happy to do it again for orders $100 or over, and like today I tagged on a smaller order because he was happy to meet at the same time.

y’all want to get together a group buy for the weekend? Plan it out. I’m available most afternoons.

Maybe. How much do you want? I have a few thermal shippers.
I would like a culture of each of the three species. . I would also love to get a starter culture of the different foods you are feeding them if you are culturing phyto.

I was culturing Tisbe but both of my cultures crashed when I was out of town for three weeks. I guess my instructions to take care of them were not good. I am starting over.


I don't mind paying for shipping at all. I need to wait a week though. My wife would be pissed if I had them delivered when I was away LOL. I can pay to hold them if needed.

Text is best. 714 757-3943
