So my eggs are arriving on Saturday morning from BlueZoo, and I want to have everything ready. My tank has been sitting for almost 4 months, and there are bazillions of amphipods and some kind of little fairy shrimp in there. My hope was to (at least until I run out of the pod population in my 40 breeder) use the pods as starter food. However, I'm now thinking I may need to source more foods just in case. Can I have some recommendations? I've been combing through the archives, and people seem to like Reed mariculture, but I just want to make sure I'm doing this right. I ordered 5 eggs as an insurance policy, although I know some locals who are interested if they all hatch and survive so based on 5, I am trying to figure out the appropriate number of mysids I should order. Thoughts on that? I see they are...hehe...not cheap. My LFS also sells Tigger pods, so I have ready access to those in a pinch, also.
