I just bought some arctic pods from the only LFS near me that serves anything like pods, mysid, etc. I hope this can hold over a few.

I tried the snow with both brine shrimp and baby seahorses and don't like it. It did not seem to feed anything and mucked up the water quality. Cyclop-eeze and Zooplex have much less effect on water quality and I know mine have eaten it because of the color of their poop.

I should go find some cyclopeeze tommorow then. Is it frozen cubes?

No, I have seen it in two forms. The form you are most likely to find is a red foil pack (the other is a very large block). When I bought it this way I would use a potato peeler and scrape it into the tank (now I buy the large block and break it up with a hammer :twisted:)

I have it in a small canister. it is freeze dried powder. You just have to make sure you submerse your pinch or else it likes to float on top.
