If there was shipping to Australia I'd buy right away!

IM CONFUSED!!!!!!!!!

that video... the shrimp in that... what are they? They look exactly like ghost shrimp?


Snacks! They are ghost shrimp in the video, but they were not the only live food they were eating. I like to use the ghost shrimp when filming because they don't 'go to ground' like the local crabs do.

I jury is out on the saltwater guppies from octopets, but Colin sums up the general feeling about them. Cephs may eat lots of different things, but that doesn't mean they are good food. James Wood was telling me about raising baby octos on frozen food. They ate it, but didn't survive very long, whole the ones eating live food survived much longer.

10minutes from the beach.

can you not have a wee crab catching expedition, there would likely be marine shrimps in rock pools etc too. A baited fish trap (a small one!!) can also be used to catch a variety of crusty scavengers, also going out at night with a bright torch and a dip net should be profitable!!

well it seems that ghost shrimp are more of a snack then a good meal... junk food for cuttles.

mine is at an odd size now..... a lil too big for pods, but not ready for bigger crabs (are fiddlers ok, or something else?)

ones, but how do you get them out of their shells..... without killing them (killed one tryin :frown: )
