    Hello All,

    I bought a pipefish about 6 months ago. It is doing really well in my tank. I have tried various foods but it will only eat Frozen Cyclopeze. Recently I cant find any Frozen Cyclopzez anywhere (Durban). If anyone knows of where to get any please let me know as it pains me to see the guy hungry. He is hunting in the tank but I dont want to rely only on my pod population to sustain him. He eats like a champ when I feed Cyclopeze. Thanks for the help in advance.

    Tanks is 2yrs old 400 ltr Aquamedic system with 160w maxspect razor. All parameters are good. :thumbup:

Sorry Williet... my client schedule has just not allowed me to get to Toti. My apologies for messing you around.
