Naturally rich in carotenoids, protein, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and waxy esters for growth. 


Arcti-Pods are large, nutrition-packed planktonic copepods harvested fresh from arctic waters. In the ocean, copepods form the basis for much of the marine food chain, making them a favorite food of even finicky fish and excellent for LPS Corals, Anemones, Zoanthids and Brittle Stars as well.

  • Rich in natural carotenoids for eye-popping color
  • Cold-processed to preserve fatty acids and nutrients
  • Great for finicky fish, including Mandarin Gobies 
  • Whole, intact copepods
  • 3000 micron particle size



Invert bottle to mix.

Add 1-2 teaspoons* of Arcti-Pods per 100 gallon tank each day. Add to a high flow area of the tank, or for target feeding, premix 4 parts tank water with 1 part Arcti-Pods. Target Feeding undiluted product is not advised. You should add enough for your fish to consume within 2 to 3 minutes.

*New users should start with half the recommended dose and slowly increase to the full dosage over a 1 month span.

Product Questions

If these pods are harvested from arctic waters, will they live for long in a 78 degree refugium?
Question by: Lisa on Jan 3, 2023, 2:02 PM
These are not live pods, these are cold-processed dead pods for supplementing as food.
