    Well it looks like this batch is not making it I do not have enough plankton cultures going.
    we will try again in 2 weeks , in the meantime i am going to build a culture station for my phytoplankton and zoo-plankton and build a culture station for the brine shrimp.

I have a breeding pair which lay eggs all the time and hatch I have a nursery tank connected to the the main system but my fear is feeding for the first few weeks. I would like to give it a go but have been told that I need a rotifer culture and green wAter to feed the Rotifers do you guys have and can you give advice. I have tried to siphon the hatch but not very easy even with the pumps and lights of only a torch

    @ reef surgeon. You need to prepare sterilized sea water in a bucket, which can be moved into a 2 lt coke bottle after 24 hiurs. Place a air stone in the bottles wuth lights shining on the bottle. Place your phyto planktkn in the bottle and feed the phyto algae grow or seagrow fertiliser. ONce dark green you are ready to feed this to the live rotivers. Always keep the rotifer water lime green. phyto plankton can be split to produce more in new botles. Feed the rotifers fir four days before using any. The harvesting help them reproduce.
