    Hi, how are you all doing?

    I'm (still) a little concerned about my mandarin's food supply, I want to start to culture some pods until I have a refugium up and running. How can I start up a culture in a separate container ?

    1. Can I buy a culture to start the process or should I take some live rock from my existing setup ?
    2. What should I feed them ?
    3. Temperatures? Salinity ?

    Any advice will be really helpful !

    thanks !

    are copepods easy to wild capture, and if so how do you go about it, any ideas?
