    I went out of town for Christmas for a few days and 3 of my eggs hatched. I just ordered 200 mysids with overnight shiiping, but I don't know how fast I can get a shipment of mysids with new years tomorrow. They aren't more than a few says old, How long can they go without food?

    don't know how long they can go without food, depends on how much yoke sack theyr born with but everything i've read says offer food right away
    can you get any kind of coepapods or amphipods from a tank

    I searched all of the tanks at work today, and found about 10 of them. Hopefully they should hold me over for a few days.
