    Congrats on this.
    Now we will see a lot more people breeding and actually rearing their Larvae stage fish!

    @Andre@ReefAquatics thank you for your support by making this available.

    Will you sell fertiliser separate?

    Is the fertiliser specificly formulated for micro algae or do you regard it as a locally obtained substitute?

    What is included in the culture kit?

    Happy? Have been trying for 10 years to figure out how to see if a coral is happy... When eating too much of the other things I grow, I Have also tried to talk to them to hear if they are happy, but I think they cant hear me through the glass...
    Sorry Andre, couldnt resist.anecdotal evidence is not evidence ;)
    As mentioned, this is commendable and well overdue in SA. A great initiative and I really encourage every reefer to support this initiative and ensure its longevity.
    When the pods are available, we can really start to push the boundaries in terms of growth rate.

    Those of you with refugiums and sump based deep sand beds, grab these goodies!!
