Frank do you know what they were culturing and feeding the Flame Angel larvae in Hawai ?

I am told they were half the size of rotifers. Personal communications with Martin Moe said his efforts were stalled out not having anything smaller then rotifers the first several days. He even spent time trolling with a plankton net trying to get enough small plankton to feed. But they starved out.

Any suggestions ?

BTW, a simple culture system I ran across at Scripps used f gal water jugs with bottoms removed, taps siliconed in the necks with airstones, and mounted in rack to make arrays, great for phytoplnakton, rotifers and artemia. You can grow a lot in this system. MUST keep rotifers from contaminating the phyto !
