Here are some macro shots of my copepods in my refugium. The largest are around 1/6th of an inch. My refugium is about 3 weeks old, but I seeded it with live copepods. The numbers are definitely increasing. Notice the different sizes of them on the glass.

hello, over the past few weeks i have been finding a lot of thise little dots in my fish tank. i don't know what they are. they are round almost clear, and have poka-dots on them. i found them in both my 5 gallon and 10 gallon, but not my betta's tanks. If you know, pleae tell me. i don't know if they are good for my tank or not. the vidio was taken by using a small hand held microscope.

Beneath the wind-tossed riparian canopy, beneath the mirror-like skin of water, there is a nebulosity of copepods (Cyclops spp.) in UND's Coulee. Photographed at Grand Forks, North Dakota (30 May 2010).
Copepods, the little white creatures in your reef aquarium. Copepods are quite often found on the substrate, live rock and corals feeding on detritus. A reef aquarium abundant with copepods will be able to sustain finicky feeders such as mandarins and other dragonets, sand sifting gobies, blennies and seahorses. Also often cultured as a food sorce for juvenile marine fry. Copepod cultures available online at www.magnavore.co.uk
I collected this copepod as bycatch a few weeks ago in the detritus sampler. Anybody know who it is?

Lots and Lots of pods in my refugium I think I'll get a Mandarin fish what do you think
First Time In Greece.
They're harmless crustaceans and a few of my male guppies treat them as snacks, especially the variegated metallic guppies. I don't know why. Anyway, these copepods seen crawling over the rocks feast on algae and decaying matter below the substrate. They bloom from time to time when I need to vacuum the gravel and I thought I'd capture them on film before they go away.
looking through the sand tonight in my reef tank, found these guys all over the place. surprising to see flatworms move that fast!
So I meant to do a video of putting together the regium, but it smehow got away from me. Basically I grabbed a small rubbermaid container, filled it with 2 inches of the Fiji Pink live sand, threw in some cheato, and some live rubble. I then placed the container inside the refugium area of the sump and put the remaining liv sand outside the bin. A couple days later, I added a bottle of a couple thousand live copepods. The thought is, they will have a safe place to breed and a few will slip into the main tank and maybe populate the live rock. I also plan on adding a couple hermit crabs and some cleaner clams to the refugium when one of my local fish stores get some in stock.
This tank has was designed to show that bristle worms and Aiptasia (glass anemone) will help keep a tank cleen. As you can see the live rock has plenty of growth and the Bubble Tips still feed fine. All water tests are fine but I do have an algae problem. I have too many Bubble Tips in my main tank so any that free themselves to move, I scoop up and transfer to this tank.
Culturing rotifers & copepods
If you are interested in this topic, you can refer to the paper by Xu Z, Burns CW. [Hydrobiologia (1990) 209: 183-189] . "When food was present there was no difference between carriers and non-carriers in growth of copepodites, and in survival and reproduction of adults. When food was absent, copepods infected with E. daphniae (vorticella) survived for shorter periods than non-carriers."
