I'm thinking of setting up a small copepod tank as well! I wanted some for a stable food source for my future dwarf seahorses. (currently cycling -_-) Do you think a 2 gallon would be too small?

Depends on how much pods they eat. I would only be supplementing the mandarins diet, do seahoreses have other food they eat? You might need alot more than 2 g.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I would feed them twice a day, big appetite but only an inch big lol. I'm starting with 4 but they will definitely reproduce. This might be a bit random but are Copepods and Rotifers the same size? And would the Copepods need heat?

I think the best environment for them would be a setup like a refuge...........
I would do a 10g with about a 3" live sand bed,some live rock,and chaeto cause copods love chaeto....and the deep sand bed cause amphipods like that
Shoot I think I'm going to give that a try,lol

Do they need light? Could I just keep them in a 5-10 gallon bucket with a heater?

I donnt think lights have been mentioned yet. So far a 10g tank, heater, some LR and a deep sandbed.

Yeah I don't know if they need light since they can be found in parts of the ocean that don't get light.......
