    i had a question about amphipods
    i ordered some from octopets and the red ball died. do they need plants to survive or wilol they feed on something else. a lot of the amphipods are not surviving and i thought that maybe they are not getting enough food.
    also i was wondering if someone could recommend a good website that i can order octo food from when my octos out grow the amphipods. would crabs be a good choice?thanks joe

    Hi,

    There are a lot of different kinds of amphipod, and they eat different things. In order to answer your question, you would need to know what kind of amphipod's you have.

    Good luck

    You might try this site for fiddler crabs. Many Tonmo members have ordered from this store.

    Aquaculture Store

    Contact Octopets for into on what your amphipods eat.
