    Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed my presentation. TDO rocks! You'll get great coloration in your juveniles by using the product. :)

    Get RGcomplete to feed the rotifers, and some Rotifer Floss.

    Congratulations, pinner!!! :party:

    I can get you started with rotifers, phyto, and TDO, however you will probably need to order eventually from Reed Mariculture. In my experience they ship quickly and everything is well packed to prevent spoilage in transit. We are really quite fortunate that orders from them arrive in one day with ground service.

    If you aren't able to get a substantial rotifer population going by the time the eggs hatch, I could get you a rotifer infusion. I believe you're in the North Bay, correct?

    I haven't moved since the Breeding and Propagation workshop, and am still in Oakland -- but I'd come by for fresh bread!!! :D

    Shipping for the Reed order should not be more than $15 or so, but if you can piggyback on a LFS that orders it for you, you could stand to save a few bucks. I will be passing through Rohnert Park on the way to Occidental on the weekend of the November 17th, so please let me know if you need me to bring extra rotifer or anything else you might need. :)

    Awesome! I'll bring you some extra rotifers since you are planning to be at the meeting this Saturday, just in case you need them. :)

    BTW welcome to BAR and thank you for joining up!
