From the Brine Shrimp Direct Site:

“Freeze-Dried Copepods

Copepods are acknowledged to be one of the best natural foods for fish fry and larvae because of their nutrient value and digestibility.

Used extensively in commercial aquaculture in Japan, Korea and Europe, copepods are considered superior to artemia in terms of HUFA content and fatty acid composition.

Brine Shrimp Direct has secured a high-quality product that is harvested from brackish water ponds, filtered, washed and freeze-dried to retain natural food value.

Applicable to both marine and freshwater aquaria, the copepod, Apocyclops royi, has only recently been harvested in commercial quantities for use in the aquaria industry and is avidly sought by ornamental fish breeders worldwide.

Feeding and handling is simple. Culture costs are lowered and survival of fish larvae, especially when fed copepods in conjunction with live or frozen artemia, is increased.
Typical analysis: 45% protein (proximate analysis pending). “

These are a great deal. They come in a powdery form, being very tiny creatures, and don’t require any special handling to serve. These continue to be a highly popular food in the dry food dish; my c. clypeatus, Fifi, stood in the dish for hours the first night I served it, eating almost until she burst.

Pros: Highly nutritious, you get a lot for the money.

Cons: Must be ordered from the site.
