    So recently in my tisbe pod culture I've noticed these large white thingies darting around the tan . At first I just thought they were cope pods but they keep growing, and I'm not sure cope pods get this big. There are some pretty hefty ones in the tank. So the only other thing it could be is...

    I've read a lot different ways to feed but I want to see what people in the hobby really do. Some say just brine shrimp or a nori sheet, some use pellets or flakes, some mix with garlic and vitamins. What works for you and makes your fish happy and healthy, what are the health benefits of garlic...

    My Seahorses before I had them had only ever been feed on frozen brine shrimp. If I feed them this I will see them eat, however I am wanting to take them off brine shrimp onto Mysis being better for them, but they don't seem to be eating the Mysis shrimp, I never see them take it. Any...

    I recently purchased a 32oz package of Sally's brine shrimp and I'm having some serious concerns as if it's any good or rotted ? When I break off a piece and thaw it in a cup of tank water it congeales into a ball of slime. It has the shrimp in it but also a clear goo that I can't remove. Yes...

    I was feeding my tank today and was wondering. Is hatching my own brine shrimp more beneficial than using the frozen kind, as far as nutrients for my fish? Also, I noticed these spiral things on some of my snail shells... can I get a positive ID on this? It looks like some kind of worm...

    Once the brine hatch, how to I get the brine out without getting eggs? How bad is it for creatures to accidentally ingest egg casings (jellyfish in particular)? Also, would mixing phyto with liquid garlic and then feeding it to the brine have any enrichment value at all?

    I just got an erectus seahorse a couple days back. It takes a teency bit of frozen brine, but it likes the live brine better. I tried feeding it frozen yesterday night but no luck. I cleaned most of it off the bottom, but not all of it. Today, I saw it pecking some of the uneaten food from the...
