Pac-Pods is a new preserved food from Reef Nutrition that is rapidly gaining attention as a ‘superfood’ for a broad range of aquarium uses. The Reef Nutrition Pac-Pods are Pacific Copepods with a size range between 500 to 800 microns which makes them an excellent food for a wide variety of small and picky fish as well as our hungry micro-predatory stony corals.
The small meaty food is one of the few offerings that isn’t cultured by Reef Nutrition and instead is harvested right from the Pacific Ocean where it is quickly frozen to preserve freshness and nutritional quality. Reef Nutrition is offering the Pac-Pods in their signature fluid that suspends the copepods in an easy to use solution that can be simply dispensed or even dosed into your reef aquarium.
Pac-Pods start at $21.75 for six fluid ounces but are also available in 12 and 32 fluid ounce containers which all need to be kept refrigerated for maximum freshness and a long shelf life. The half millimeter size of Pac-Pods is tantalizingly close to the size range that made CyclopEeze one of the first real popular zooplankton foods in the reef aquarium hobby and it should fill a very important size range for feeding the very smallest mouths in saltwater and reef aquariums.
