    Thought I'd start a poll on this to gauge what the majority of people are doing. I've read so much info insisting on at least 50% harvesting to practices recommending as little as 25%. Seems the vast majority of sources state either 25%, 33% or 50%. So the poll reflects those choices. Please...

After waiting through a few batches to learn about the process of raising them, i am finally ready to give it a shot. On the night of the hatch i will siphon as many as a can into a 5 gallon tank. In this tank...

    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.

    Essentially one of the fish ive desired for a long time is a mandarin, and while i believe my system can support one, id like to be sure. In my local area, all i can find are copepod + rotifers mix, frankly i don't really know much about rotifers. Will mandarins eat them or is it purely...

    Ok so I want to start breeding marine fish. Not just clowns but that's where I will start along with a few other easy to start with pairs.

    Ok, I thought it might be a good idea to set up a separate thread for my Clownfish breeding. Hunter, you are free to chime in since you are the "foster parent". But I will actually be keeping a record since Hunter is woefully bad about no posting pictures. I am 'breeding' the pair but Hunter...

    my rotifer colony crashed and I do not have access to live rotifers to feed to my seahorse fry - I have over 200 of the little buggers and they are little piglets when it comes to eating. does any one have any to spare that I can have or buy today or tomorrow? I need to both use them as feed...
