    Can someone suggest a place  I can buy copepods?  Either online (if someone has a favorite ) or locally (QC area).
    I am setting up a refugium. 
    Thank you

    Hey Mary,

    Best place to seed your fuge is from your other members tanks.

    Go see 3 or 4 of them & get a cup or 2 of sand from their fuges & add it to yours.

    Easy as that.

    Wish you were closer, I have a spot in my tank where there is thousands of easy to catch copepods.

    But as Craig said, it's way cheaper to get it from some friends close by. Even if it's a handfull of macro algae, it's got way more than the $20 bottles get you...

    Aquatic Environments had two small containers of them on the counter last week. They where DT's and I think the price was $16.99.
