    Fresh ZooPLASM Copepods

    For over a decade AlgaGen has been leading the way with novel, high quality live feeds that have been used  by professionals and home hobbyists with great success.  We have once again come up with a new idea related to feeding which we believe will result in even more success for the end user. We call it Easy Feed  Packaging™.

    Easy Feed Packaging™ can be used to manually spot feed or  it can be configured to obtain a drip rate set on a continuous feed.  It can be dripped in the dawn or dusk hours of your tanks cycle to simulate natural feeding activity.  For those of you interested in doing so, an aquarium pump can be fit to the bag via the short port so that a small amount of air keeps the contents of the bag alive and growing.  We are actively working on developing new concepts using this approach and will offer advances as they become available on our website.  We also sell the Easy Feed Packaging™ by themselves for you to refill, we hope with our products, but other products can be used with these bags as well!

    Hatcheries and individuals sometimes create unique solutions to this problem by creating automatic plankton dosing apparatuses.  Some of these  will grow plankton and feed it to the tank, others will just feed it.  They can be expensive and not simple to set up.

    AlgaGen’s new line of LIVE feeds are produced with the highest level of standards and packaged in a way that is simple to use, and mimics food availability the way it is found in nature;  at constant and consistent amounts.  We call it Easy Feed  Packaging™ because it is easy to use, not expensive and yields superior results.

    We offer the highest quality cultures with no fillers, thickeners, dyes, or gels. All orders are packed FRESH the day of shipment to ensure the best results in your aquarium! All of our products are produced in a sterile, fish and coral free system, meaning no chance of diseases or parasites!

    is a mixture of 3 species of copePODS.  The copePODS selected are tropical and will co-habitat in our Easy Feed  Packaging, as well as thrive in a tank without eating each other.  There are many copepod products on the market that will place incompatible copepod species together in a bottle resulting in one type or the other being eaten.  The copepods selected for this mix will feed many finicky fish, including  wrasses, dragonets, seahorses, mandarins, gobys, corals, sps, some lps, soft corals, amphipods, crabs, and various other invertebrates.  The PODS will also feed upon detritus and fish waste in your tank, keeping your tank clean as they provide a sustainable source of prey.  The Easy Feed  Packaging™ allows for either drip or spot feeding and can be stored on the shelf for up to 2 weeks.  An air pump can be configured  to the bag to increase life span,  and/or to turn the bag into a small copePODS culture vessel.  Since these copePODS species are tropical, they CANNOT BE REFRIGERATED.
    ZooPLASM™ Rotifers
    is a mixture of Rotifers and green phytoplankton.  The Rotifers and phytoplankton will feed seahorses, small fish, corals,  sps, some lps, soft corals, amphipods, gorgonians, crabs, and various other invertebrates.  It  can also be used for larval feeding and greenwater mesocosms.  The Easy Feed  Packaging™ allows for either drip or spot feeding and can be stored on the shelf for up to 2 weeks.  An air pump can be configured  to  the bag to increase life span,  and/or to turn the bag into a small rotifer culture vessel.  Since these rotifers are a tropical species, they CANNOT BE REFRIGERATED.
