Do I need a light?

Live Copepods do need a combination of light and dark (as in our night and day cycle). 

Artificial light can be provided on a timer if cultured in a place where natural light is limited.

Do I need a heater or sieve?

A heater is not required if you are culturing in your home.

If your culture will be situated somewhere where the temperature is not maintained like an outbuilding, shed or garage, then a heater should be used to maintain a temp of 20 deg.

Should you need a copepod sieve / net then we have them in store here.

The culture container & pump provided may be a slightly different design / shape than shown in photo. The plastic screw on lid supplied may also be white in colour)

Air Pumps are also available separately should you need one.
