Thought of another question. Will these propogate in a refuge or do they require special cultural systems?

Mysis will definately propogate on their own if left in a refuge and without predation, however they're cannabalistic and without enough food, they'll prey on their own young. IME, their numbers roller coaster.. sometimes swelling and most times dwindling when left alone in a natural reef environment.

OK, what would one feed them then?

 

I'm only about to start to try to take on the task of trying to cultivate them like StanD is doing, so he might know better than I would at this point, but from my readings i've determined that generally their diet consists of various types of zooplankton. Rotifers and/or baby brine-shrimp are a great source of food for young mysis, as adults their diet can consist or larger foods... anything your fish would generally eat. Reef Nutritions makes a Roti-Feast product which i've seen at my LFS for around $20, I plan to buy a bottle of that.

Would it be possible to get a breakdown of your mysis culturing system? (Either in this thread or via PM) I don't have any stock that would need them ATM, but I am curious how you are producing so many from a 40br.

 

This really is idle curiosity more than anything. I think mysids are fascinating, and so I spend almost as much time watching them zip around my refugium as I do watching my corals.

every one needs to buy his shrimp......I still have them alive in my fuge after 9 months and a full breakdown and rebuild.

 

And it has cut my feeding down drastically.

I have about 100 left - any locals in SoCal need to treat their corals and fish to some live mysis?
