AmphiCAM contains amphipods sp. This nocturnal species lives and breeds in saltwater. Each bottle contains approximately 50 amphipods; in order to avoid the rapid consumption of avalaible oxygen while in the bottle which would in turn rise ammonia levels thus killing them before introduction to your system.
Directions: if the amphipods have settled at the bottom of the bottle and appear not to be moving, lightly shaking the bottle will bring them out of dormancy. Do not pour the contents of the bottle directly into the aquarium as predators may consume the amphipods before they have time to establish themselves. For this reason it is highly recommended to introduce them while lights are off.
