Care Facts

There are no key facts available for this product.

Nutramar Tigrio is a packaged culture of living Tigriopus sp. copepods. These copepods are an excellent source of nutrients for your marine aquarium inhabitants as they contain protein and essential unsaturated fatty acids. They populate in the home aquarium and will act as detritivores, breaking down excess food and waste. 
Each bottle of Nutramar Tigrio is cultured in-house to provide the upmost quality and nutrition. The copepods erratic swimming motion will tempt many finicky fishes to begin feeding eagerly. This is an excellent food for filter feeding corals and other invertebrates. Nutramar Tigrio is cultured in purified and ozonized saltwater in a controlled environment.

Feeding: Acclimate the copepods by floating the bottle for 10 mins in your aquarium. You may safely add the entire contents of the bottle into the aquarium. If you are attempting to seed a lasting population, it is best to dim or turn off lights and pumps for 5 - 10 minutes, so the crustaceans can settle into protected locations. Dosing phytoplankton, such as Nutramar CRIT, IC, Nanno and TC, will help ensure the population has plenty of nutrients to thrive. 

Storage: Nutramar Tigrio should be stored at a consistent temperature below 75F, and out of direct sunlight. This will prevent harmful temperature fluctuations and algae growth. Oxygen is consumed by the living copepods, and so it is recommended leave the cap open during storage. For long-term storage, it is recommended that Nutramar Tigrio be refrigerated between 40-50F.
