    Copepods

    I just put my new seahorse into a 14 gallon Ocenaic Bio cube and he is lovin the live copepods that are already in there.

    I had taken rock out of my existing 75 gallon reek that I have had for almost 6 years and put in the new tank so I assume that's where they came from...or maybe the sand as I took that out of the other tank as well.

    ....anyway my question is that if I notice that there are no copepods left for him to enjoy can I switch up the live rock from my 6 year old tank to give him more? Does anyone see a problem with this?

    I am also feeding him other food (which he takes) but when the lights first come on in the morning he goes crazy getting the little copepods and I want to keep him happy!!!

    i see no prob swapping the LR.. as long as its not out of the water for long the rock should stay live and well.
    you may want to build a refugium to build a steady supply of pods for him with some cheato and LR.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    adding a rubble pile to his tank will also help to keep up populations.

    If worse come to worse, you can always get some Tigger pods to repopulate your pod colony.
