The best source I've found lately is for top quality
freezedried bloodworms, and also brine shrimp eggs in quantities as low as 6
grams (sounds like college again...). They also have developed a line of
decapsulated brine shrimp eggs to feed to smaller fishes. All of my Fundulus
and Notropis seem to like the decaps. The company is based in Utah and sell
Great Salt Lake eggs.
