Arcti-Pods® are large, nutrition-packed planktonic copepods (3000 microns) harvested fresh from arctic waters. In the ocean, copepods form the basis for much of the marine food chain. No other product excites your fish like Arcti-Pods! Even many of the most finicky fish, such as Mandarin dragonets. In addition, they are great for invertebrates too: LPS Corals, Anemones, Zoanthids, Brittle Stars and more! Arcti-Pods are rich in carotenoids, which bring out the color of your animals. Arcti-Pods are also naturally rich in protein, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and waxy esters for growth. They contain whole and intact biological organisms in a media with benign food-grade additives. No phosphates have been added.
