    I am going to order a few cultures from fishgobble.com. Shipping is the same no matter how many items are ordered so if anyone else wants to tag something on just let me know. I want to place the order within the next few days.

    what are you going to order, looks to me as if everything I might want is sold out. I will look again this evening.

    You realize that will be many live food cultures for sale at the Killifish show at the end of the month.

    Yep, I will be at the WAKO Jamboree this weekend, my first fish event of any kind since May. At any rate, they usually sell lots of worm cultures: vinegar eels, white, banana, walter, micro, and california red. Frequently you can get daphnia or paramecium. What are you looking to pick up?

    I don't see those at the show. Sometimes they are at a Milwaukee Auction. I know there are a couple that are banned in Wisconsin.

    Is this regarding the shrimp or certain copepods?

    The gammarus, Dikerogammarus villosus, but I don't think this is the one commonly offered as scuds.

    Okay, Ill double check with the supplier just in case. Thanks.

    I've had gammarus as pest animals in planted tanks before, so you'll want to be careful and make sure that your fish will actually eat them. :)

    I have herd about that. They will eat anything including your well cared for plants. I am really just interested in culturing them for a while to see what they are like and how potentially useful they could be to me.
