Tisbee Pods, scientifically known as Tisbe Biminiensis, are great for seeding new tanks and refugiums, boosting existing populations, or feeding finicky fish & inverts such as Mandarins, Seahorses, Anthias, Wrasses, SPS, LPS & NPS Corals, Clams, and most other filter-feeding inverts.

Each 16oz portion of Tisbe Biminiensis contains up to 3000+ LIVE pods from juvenile to adult sizes. This mix of pods are 100% viable to reproduce in marine aquaria. To ensure that your pods stay healthy OceanMagik LIVE Phytoplankton Blend is recommended to supplement their diet.

Also known as Tisbe Pods for short, are found along the coast of Brazil in sandy beach, and shallow environments. They can tolerate a wide range of temperatures, oxygen and salinity, so are quite hardy. In the aquarium, they tend to stay in the cracks and crevasses of the aquascape and macroalgae, adding to the "cleanup crew".

Tisbes reproduce quickly, where their young become a great food source for filter feeding inhabitants and fish larvae in the saltwater system. The adults also have a jerk-like swimming motion which triggers feeding response of many fish.  Their nocturnal demeanor sustains their population, as well.

Benefits to Adding Copepods:

  1. Seed Your Aquarium
    • Copepods are an essential component of the flora and fauna.
  2. Clean Your Tank
    • As copepods mature, they will change in shape and size making them excellent scavengers for the aquarium - they fit in all of the hard to reach areas.
  3. Feed Finicky Fish
    • Each jar contains a range of juvenile to adult pods. Due to their size, adults are consumed quickly, while the younger population can reproduce, establish and sustain their numbers in your saltwater system.

Manufacturer information

We think the best way to inspire people to protect our oceans is to help them observe, understand and learn from the magnificent creatures that inhabit them. That’s why at Algaebarn we produce premium aquacultured marine organisms that are sustainable and eco-friendly. By providing quality live foods backed by scientific research, we aspire to improve the general health and longevity of ornamental fish. One day we hope to see all marine aquariums filled entirely with aquacultured organisms, thus reducing our hobby’s impact on natural marine environments. The best way to make that vision a reality is to start with the building blocks of all marine ecosystems; Zooplankton and Phytoplankton. We grow all of our premium Copepods and Phytoplankton at the base of the Rocky Mountains in our state of the art 2,000sqft aquaculture facility. As hobbyists ourselves we understand the importance of knowing what goes into your aquarium. That’s why we run all of our water through a twelve stage RODI system before mixing in InstantOcean synthetic sea salt. There are no fish or copper parts anywhere in our facility so you never have to worry about introducing anything unwanted into your aquarium. We only sell premium live Copepods & nutritious Phytoplankton with no harmful chemicals or preservatives.
