    Ever thought about adding a line of amphipods?

    I just wanted to second this request!

    I lost all mine when I treated for Bryopsis. Would be nice to have more options when it comes to these little critters!

    yes, another offering like amphipods done "cleanly" without risk of parasites like your other products would be great from you guys!

    Fluconazole. Decimated my entire pod population, unfortunately. Not sure if it was directly or because my system became too clean.

    Interesting, I have a huge pod and amphipod population. Some of them are the size of small shrimp. I have to clean pods off my glass daily. There’s Bryopsis in my fuge, it came in on a snail. None of it survives in my display. I’ve been on the fence about treating it. I could put some peroxide in the fuge but I’m sure the algae is everywhere and my fuge has tons of sponges. The treatment definitely worked?

    Yup, it definitely worked. For the bryopsis in the shady areas it took weeks, but everything getting blasted by light died in the first week.

    I used to have those, then they inexplicably went extinct after I got my wrasses. To this day a year later, I'm sure my wrasse still look for the buggers.

    I'd love to see these offered as well! I've been on the search for a source of healthy, clean amphipods.
