    Your best bet would be if you get a Permit and get some from the Sea...unless another Reefer can help out with some...it is Illegal in SA to Cultivate them..

    Have you tried live brine shrimp..?
    PS: Getting the "Bottled" version is not Illegal...it's just nearly impossible to Import and at the end very costely...they come as "Live Cargo"...got to be at a certain temp...have to store in a Fridge...blah blah...works out very costly...you can "personally buy from an overseas place, but it's the same...you need a Permit...just like the Shops do that Import Marine Fish...

    Ja, I have tried live brine shrimp but my other fish are such pigs and they go eat it all up in seconds, that's why I was thinking of the tigerpods because I read that they can hide and breed in the aquarium like copepods do.
