    Hi all,

    Any dealers / LFS out there that supply this as opposed to all the frozen stuff? Is this something we are able to cultivate ourselves?

    Brine shrimp pretty easy to cultivate, there are a few threads out there about it. Copepods, easy peasy, get some old live rock in your sump/dsb/refuge, add some macro algae and voila! Pods - mine have gone bananas
