Everybody, thank you so much for all your support (and orders!). The welcome we've received from this community has been truly incredible, and we're so grateful! I've put together a little bit more information about us and am including it below. Some of this information has already been posted in our introduction thread, but some hasn't been.

Dinkins Aquatic Gardens is a small business run by my wife and myself (mostly my wife!) that focuses on live foods for your reef. We currently offer phytoplankton, three species of copepods, rotifers, and baby brine shrimp. We expect to release amphipods soon, once we finish our shipping tests.

We focus on providing a quality product with concierge-level customer service and a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Your emails and Facebook messages will be answered within minutes in most cases - you'll never need to fill out a help ticket and wait days for a reply. With our live delivery guarantee, you'll never fill out a form, take any pictures, or jump through hoops. You just send us an email, and we take care of the rest.

Come visit us at http://dinkinsaquaticgardens.com!

Product Spotlight

Live Phyto Blend
- Feed your corals and your microfauna with our blend of six different species of live phyto to provide the optimal nutritional profile for your reef. You wouldn't feed your kids exclusively one type of food - why would you feed your reef only one or two species of phyto?

Reef Snacklebox - Three species of copepods and a generous helping of rotifers feed your corals and finicky fish. The Tigriopus, Apocyclops, and Tisbe pods will also colonize your refugium and rocks, cleaning up the detritus that gets stuck in hard-to-reach areas.

Snacklepack Combo - Maximize your tank's biodiversity by combining a 16 ounce Reef Snacklebox with a 16 ounce bottle of Live Phyto Blend.

We also offer other combo packs on pods, as well as single-species copepods (Tigriopus, Tisbe, and Apocyclops). Don't forget to pick up your rotifers and baby brine shrimp as well - both highly nutritious live foods for coral.


Shipping is free in the Continental U.S. on orders over $65. We provide an ironclad live delivery guarantee. We also offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee - no hoops, no forms, no B.S. You will be satisfied, or you'll get your money back.


I've collected some of our reviews into a single thread for your perusal. Buy with confidence - all of these people did!


We are shifting to 100% recyclable and biodegradable shipping materials, with recyclable product bottles as well. Now you can feed your reef without worrying about styrofoam and other packing materials ending up in a landfill! Read more about it here.
