Mysid Shrimp
SKU: mysid2
Mysid opposum Shrimp up to 1/4 inch in size. Used primarily for feeding finicky Marine tropicals, cuttlefish and seahorses. Mysids are difficult to culture due to their cannibalistic behavior of picking off weaker individuals. They can be kept for short periods of time (several weeks) by putting them in a tub with medium aeriation and feeding daily with fresh hatched brine shrimp. Frequent water changes are a must. These are kept at low specific gravities of around 1.014.

Plankton Feed
SKU: pf1
This plankton feed comes in powder form. Simply add the correct amount of water and feed according to the instructions. We make this ourselves and have been using it to feed all of our rotifers, copepods, daphnia, tubifex worms, and amphipods. This plankton feed is very forgiving, as it is not too oily and contains a nice blend of plant and protein matter. Feeding is subjective to population and volume of water. 1/2 teaspoon of plankton feed and water to 1 gallon of culture water is a good start. Do not cloud the water. If the water stays cloudy, that means that you are feeding too much. The powder stays the freshest in the refrigerator, and after water is added, refrigeration is required.

All plankton feed items now include a mixing bottle and eye dropper for feeding!

These copepods can be cultured in any size container with little to no aeriation. Feed lightly with crushed flake food, micro algae, or plankton feed once a day.

Saltwater Amphipods
SKU: SWamph1
Small "C" shaped shrimp that like to dart in and out of substrate. They are an excellent addition to any aquarium as they feed on detritus and help to balance the aquarium. Culture in a tub with light aeriation and give them plenty of places to hide. Feed once a day. Seahorses love these as well as other finicky eaters, and they are fairly easy to culture yourself, but a little hard to catch! These come in groups of 30 and groups of 100.

Shore Shrimp
SKU: css1
Easy to keep feeder shrimp. These are fun pets or make a great meal for an angler fish or other medium sized fish (up to 6 inches). They keep well and eat flake food. These make a great snack for any predator fish. Keep a top on your aquarium or they will jump out and turn crispy on your aquarium lights! One word of advice, often our customers break off their rostrum (point on the nose) to prevent it from getting stuck in your fish's throat if the fish is in the 2+-" range.
