Hi folks, has anyone tried culturing vinegar eels as a live food source for
larvae? They are pretty easy to grow and are small enough for very young
fry, but I was wondering if anyone had had any problems resulting from
their use? We usually make paramecium multimicronucleatum for newly
hatched fish and then baby brine shrimp when they're a little older. This
works well for us, but we are also trying to get alternative sources of
live food going, too.
I would appreciate the benefit of your experiences.
