    Depending on how many mysid you need you can use a couple 10 g. This will not yield very much (100 per week maybe) but is quite simple and efficient.

    I can give you more information if you would like.

    Greg,
    If you have a formula for a 10 at 100/week PLEASE post it! Also, there are varying reports on the mysid (Steve has said the NZ kind don't eat each other) and I am wondering if where they come from (Atlantic, Gulf, Pacific) might be important.
