I wouldn't mind trying some scuds. Pretty sure my killies would enjoy them. Yup! Aquabid. I ordered worms from aquabid a few years ago with great success. Didnt want to pay $11 shipping with the other guy. Hopefully I don't regret it.

Also sometimes I accidentally contaminate my daphnia or fry tanks with a predictable disaster senario. So thats why I was planning to get spixi snails to keep me covered. But now that you mention cories eating them, I might have a pretty good alternative.
Just want to give you the disclaimer that I never witnessed a Pyg eating a hydra, simply that the population dwindled after I introduced Pygs. It could be anything, that my bioload shifted against the hydra population, that their curiosity dislodged the hydra often enough that they starved or went into hibernation... anything.

Acitydweller: More scuds already! Good lord. I do find them very entertaining. The daughter likes to poke them to make them scurry.

Fair enough. Oh well as long as its clear of hydra, its does the job. I have 1 lone pygmy cory, I could see what she does. As long as I can find some hydra.

Hahahah I just might. I have a nice group of cory habrosus to keep her company. And originally I had a group of pygmy but I accidentally co2 gassed them.

I know a breeder in NYC and I can't decide if I should get more or let her live on a beautiful aquatic farm somewhere. But I will keep you in mind if I do give her away. Dang she is one of my favorites but its really too bad I only have one.

I vote that you take advantage of Sunyang's free tanks and get her some friends.

Lol considering it and trying. I mostly wanted the tank so I can have a little hydra farm again.

But man I really gotta cut down. I have enough bills and every time I visit this forum I end up expanding. lol

I know, same here!

Albert, if you catch enough scuds by next meet, I would like some. If not I think I found some places to order from.

You're raising bloodworms? I thought that they have an airbourne adult state, which makes culturing a pain.
