Ahhh... The Crinoid Conundrum. "It's sooo cool. But what will I feed it?
It's sooooooooooo cool!" :) (if you have no idea what we're

It would seem probable the GP's would work...

There's only one way to find out. I'll bring some samples on the 12th and
then you can play with it and see if you like it or not. This paired with
live sand would offer enough supplemental bacteria and unicellular algae to

Anyone else doing fish rearing that would like to try some? Contact me off

didn't realize how much 8 oz was and it's just sitting there for now (I'm not
patient enough to see if it works just on my own ;).

Also, if you recieve a package from me with brown dust in it. It's golden
pearls, not anthrax. So don't worry. ;)
