Also you can get live phytoplankton to feed them,this boosts their nutritional value massively ! :thu:

I used to culture phyto a lot when I had my reef tank, never had a problem with it.

I knew I had added an article somewhere :-):

I bought some of dry artemia cysts by ArtemiaDirect and did exactly like they said in the feeding instruction, but honestly I did not succeed, I'm thinking maybe the product was not good.Can anybody please tell me their shelf life?
