    Additional Information
    Miscellaneous Information: I just picked up a bottle of Reef Nutrition Tigger-Pods from the LFS. I'm following the culturing guidelines presented in a recent CORAL magazine.

    I set up 2 small containers and poured approximately have of the bottle into each one, added a small pinch of flake food, and will see what happens.

    Good luck! I tried these before too and I killed them all. lol. I know some people can culture these easily. I tried to culture like rotifers, with air stone and a heater indoors, then another time just in a bucket outside, without an air stone. nothing worked for me.
    i'll be following along.
    I need to attend a Fish Breeders Anonymous class.

    I've taken the cultures down... I had two set up and they were rocking for awhile then one petered out. The other limped along for a while. The water in the culture went green and I believe that may have helped it last longer.

    If others have had success culturing this species please share your secret!
