Arctipods do not breed in captivity unless your tank is very cold. You want Amphipods and mysid shrimp. Stomatella snails are nice too.

Do you know any good resources to buy mysid shrimp and stomatella snails?
Reef Nutrition does sell Tiger pods. Reefcleanse.org sells various types of pods and so does liveaquaria.com I usually add a couple different types of pods to my tank every few months just for diversity.

Go to your LFS they will likely have live copepods. I added a bottle last april and they are still present. I can tell because my mandarin is very fat. I think i added tiger pods but im not 100% sure. I was too much of a noob to pay attention.

My understanding is that Tigger Pods are coldwater species that have difficulty reproducing on reef tanks. There are other species that are better suited to reproduce in our tanks.

like i said, im not sure what i added. but the point is, there are copepods out there that you can buy with the intent of them propagating in your tank.
