Re:Refugium setup and seahorse fry


Thank you Peter!

I have decided to experiment with hang on refugiums to enhance my copepod production. My primary concern is providing enough high quality food for the new fry. I do not like feeding young seahorses BBS if I can find a way to produce copepods, in large enough numbers to sustain them. I can not leave the young in the main tank to fend for themselves. We all know BBS are a sub-optimal diet for seahorses. Now I must find a way to improve the nutritional plane for the offspring. I now have almost 400G dedicated to raising to raising seahorses. I just sold a 20" Moray Eel and a 4" Parrot fish, that like cocktail shrimp, to make make room for more more seahorses. I don’t mind the work, I am concerned about providing the right nutrition fir the seahorses. Any ideas?
Thanks, Cheryl
