AlgaeBarn Copepods - Second to None!

      AlgaeBarn’s live pods are a must-have product for seeding a new reef aquarium or to replenish an established system. Copepods are amazing little creatures! Live pods are one of the best ways to provide nutrition in the reef tank. These tiny critters are also prized for their hard work in regulating the growth of algae. Pods can also reduce detritus build up in the reef tank system. A healthy pod population plays a crucial part in creating a balanced reef.


     Pods are so valued in the hobby because they are one of the best food sources on earth. AlgaeBarn’s unique blend of pods has a very high concentration of fatty acids. They are also great sources of amino acids which are crucial for growth. Aminos and fatty acids are critical to maintain health in fish and inverts. Both are also vital organic compounds needed to produce vibrant coloration in coral and fish. AlgaeBarn selects pods in larval and mature stages to increase food acceptance in many picky eaters.
