15-20  live amphipods with breeding colony and nests

Ocean Rider Green Iron Horse Feed :  Marine Amphipods are Small Crustacea of the Gammaridea species. They range in size from a few microns to 50 microns. Graze on phytoplankton, bacteria, detritus both in the water column and on the tank walls and rocks. They love to make nests on the tank walls or in clumps of sea lettuce, or any of the macro algae or Hawaiian Ogos.

Excellent food for seahorses! Often found in the algae feed to abalone where they love to graze and nest making them very common in abalone pens!!

Excellent food source for delicate eaters such as seahorses and mandarins. Besides being an excellent food source for your delicate eaters maintaining a good population in your tank will help keep your tank clean, healthy and stable. The refugium is a great place to breed these amphipods where you can culture them and harvest them directly for feeding.
