Breeding Copepods?

Looks good to me. As long as you keep on top of maintaining some sort of water quality. I would add a bunch of LR rubble and some cheato.

Other than LR rubble & cheato what else do I need. I'm ready to place my order.

And can this work?:rollface:

Any more suggestions? before I buy it. I want to keep my Green Dragonet ALIVE!!!

Why not buy a HOB refugium? That way its a part of the overall system so water quality isn't a problem. In addition, they copepods are regularly flushed into the display as they breed. You can find one for around $100 on ebay.

I do not have the room atm. Will this suffice to breed Copepods & what else do I need?

How do you plan on getting them out and into your display for your mandarin? A fuge is your best bet.

edit. If this is for your 24g I would be more worried that either anemone will eat the mandarin in such a small space.

Wouldn't that take hours each day seeing as a mandarin eats easily a couple hundred pods a day? ( Them being smaller than a pin head)
