Added some live mysis

In my ten gallon I use to have little swarms of pods in all the crevices of my tank. Then I though it would be a good idea to add a couple dozen live mysis. Well for a few days I saw a few here and there in those same nooks and corners. Well, now I don't see any mysis or swarms of little things, along with hardly any of the ones I use to see on the glass. So lesson learned, bigger plankton eats all smaller plankton then they all die off! D'oh

Actually they probably didn't all die off but mysis are cannibalistic so they likely ate each other!

Not only that, but many species prey on copepods and smaller isopods.

Tell me about it, it's been weeks and I barely seen any pods in my tank still. Some crawling around on the glass, a few swimming between rocks. Not the swarms of little dots that use to be in every dark corner.
