Hi all

I'm thinking of feeding live food for example copepods and brine shrimp. Has anyone used an online shop to buy them as the shop I go to is about a 30/45 min drive away

Hi from what I have read you might want to look into hatching your own live food as apparently there is a risk of introducing pests to your tank via the water that the live food comes in, you can buy brine shrimp eggs ect and Hatch them yourself.  However I'm far from an expert on the matter and I've never ordered live food online so possibly there is a reliable source if so I be interested myself.

Thanks:

Hi @Tommy10385 I did think about doing my own but I'm short of space in the house and the wife would probably complain about more clutter  :D so I just wanted a reliable source rather than doing the long round trip

Have a look at @Reefphyto one of our suppliers.  They do all sorts of live food and breeding kits
