Re: NFC: Novumbra hubbsi

Suggest contacting one of the many vendors that sell live food cultures.  
They advertise in the classified ad section of most of the aquarium 
magazines.  One of the firms that has a wide selection of cultures is 
LFS Cultures (http://www.lfscultures.com/).  Suggested organisms that 
are easy to culture include fruit flies, daphnia magna (heat resistant, 
unlike Daphnia pulex), grindal worms, etc.

If you would like live food but don't want to maintain cultures, Konrad 
Schmidt has glassworms available.  Glassworms are clear midge larvae 
found under the ice - fish love them.  Bloodworms are also midge larvae 
and fish eat them with gusto, whether live or frozen.  Konrad can be 
contacted by email: flier at uswest_net
