live food

  1. General Reef Discussion
    Hey guys! I was wondering if anyone has started a krill or other small invert tank for the purpose of feeding live food? I have a 20 gal that I'd like to do that with so I can one, save money on food, two, have better quality nutrition for my lil guys, and 3, keep my wrasses happy. Any thoughts...

    This is how I have gone about dosing my reef aquarium with live sources of food. I've put together an approach that is suitable for my needs. Hopefully others who are reading this thread can provide additional information on their methods that I myself or others can benefit from.

    I just released him into the display tank and he is eating vigorously every day. What's nice about where I live (Taiwan) is the local people do what is called shrimp fishing. They used blocks of small frozen shrimp to catch large jumbo shrimp. There are two sizes in each block. One size for...

    I have a dwarf lion fish. It will only eat live (which I am fine with). But I keep running out of food because my LFS only carries about 15 ghost shrimp each week. He will eat that in 2 or even 2 1/2 days because they are so small. So I keep having to go store to store to find them. Any...

    can small fish (1") co-exist with larger zooplankton ? for some zooplankton species adults get up to 5mm. small fish i'm guessing would have difficulty eating them. would the babies (newly hatched) be small enough for fish fry ? once the zooplankton have reached adult size, i'd like to hope...

    So I have in the past put copepods in the display tank and in my refugium. I don't see any in the tank even at night, and I have not seen my Mandarin eating anything off the rocks for a while. I see them on the sides of the 'fuge but it doesn't seem like they are getting through the pump into...

    They seem to have some pretty cheap CB horses. Anyone ever buy seahorses from them? Ive heard good things about their live food but nothing else. Also, whats the guarentee on live foods and on vertebrates aka seahorses?

    Hi new here! :wavey: My 29 gallon tank is still in the works, but I am curious about feeding live foods. What types of live foods are you feeding and where do you prefer to get them? (online vendor suggestions are welcome as I do intend to order pod packages online for the overall benefit to...
