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.
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. Heaters are available in our store here.
Culture container may differ in shape to the one displayed in the image above.
