Wanted: Copepods

I am looking for some copepods to begin a culture at home to feed to my dwarf seahorses.

If anyone knows any good suppliers or if you culture them at home and have some you are willing to part with please let me know

--Oh no - I posted in the wrong forum I thought I was in the classifieds. Could a mod please move my thread for me?--

LiveAquaria has them from time to time and I'd totally recommend them.

As for me, I used to have a bunch of copepods in my reef tank but they've been feasted on by the amphipods and wrasse . I'd be willing to send you some chaeto housing various 'pods but it's way too hot anyway .

Cool, let me know how it goes! They're just awesome as far as packaging and shipping go. Great customer service, too, they definitely honor their guarantee. They've refunded me for animals that died over a week after getting them. They even guarantee coral which is rare in local shops.

If they're out of copepods let me know and I'll give you some links.

Also....check out any online local marine aquarist board....most of us are more than happy to siphon out a bunch of copepods to get you started.
