The IceCap Pod Habitat is a clever way to cultivate a collection of copepods that you can use to feed your reef aquarium. The way it works is simple: just place the Pod Habitat in your sump, refugium, or in the back of your all-in-one aquarium. In no time, pods will begin populating the new luxurious 7-story high-rise you’ve built for them. One the Pod Habitat is at full occupancy, lift it out of your sump and dip it in your display tank. Give it a shake to evict the tenants into your aquarium. This is an easy and effective way to repopulate your tank with copepods plus it gives your fish a delicious and nutritious live food source. Another benefit of having a healthy pod population is that they consume detritus, waste, and macroalgae which in turn keeps your tank clean. They are important critters and the Pod Habitat gives them a safe place to live and reproduce.

You can find them at your local fish store or have them shipped directly to your door. This makes it easy to jumpstart or replenish a pod population no matter where you are located. In time, the Pod Habitat will provide a refuge where the pods can reproduce in your own aquarium until you have a self-sustaining pod population!
