    I have been using a baby brine shrimp feeder for many years. Notice the blue stripe pipefish and the mandarin are pregnant as they always are. I am not sure if you guys can get brine shrimp eggs there. They are very common in the States
    This is over an hour after I loaded the feeder with new born brine shrimp so there isn't much left. The mandarins are camera shy

    Love those mandarins and pipefish, they look awesome. I am also planning on a baby brine shrimp feeder for my setup before I purchase a mandarin.

    Not sure what it's called. But my dad has it on his iPad. Not sure if you get hardcopies.

    Ok, found it. The books name is "The Avant-Garde Marine Aquarist" and it is available as an eBook and hardcopy. Can't find a place in SA that sell it though. Going to purchase it online then.

    I am not sure if they will send a hard copy to you guys and I have nothing to do with that. I assume they would if you want to pay the shipping. It is here
    http://www.saltwatersmarts.com/avant-garde-marine-aquarist/

    If you search for my name on that site (Baldassano) you will find a bunch of articles I wrote. If you are interested of course.

    Always interested. Just registered to the site and I am already going through the articles. I am planning on purchasing the ebook, would like the hardcopy but the ebook will do. Maybe have it printed afterwards that I can place it in my collection of marine books (also unexpected stuff can happen to electronics).

    I am not sure if they will send a hard copy. Maybe if you guys order a few of them the shipping would be a lot less, but I really don't know. I am going to try to find out.
