Amphipod / Copepod / Krill

Amphipods are an important food source required by some fish species to survive in the wild. Many of these fish will starve to death in an aquarium if and until they can be weaned off to other, more convenient hand fed foods such as frozen mysis shrimp, brine shrimp or other finely-chopped meaty fare such as krill. Some fish, such as the Mandarin/dragonette and sea horses are found by most aquarists to be extremely difficult to get to eat anything other than amphipods/copepods. Amphipods are also the main food for many sandsifting and sleeper gobies.
