I keep a miniature cleaner shrimp from Hawaii. They are only about
1/2-3/4" long so less danger to my smaller killies. I nearly lost them
until I discovered the trick. The missing element (ion) apparently was
iodide! As soon as I started feeding some "Nori" flakes, they reproduced
like mad. YMMV. Worth a try, tho, Andy.


PS Apologies to the list for heretically suggesting a non-live food. :^)
