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

Matt
