Where can I get micro starfish?

Postby cyclops23 on Fri Jan 31, 2014 9:42 pm

Where can I get some micro life to seed my tank? wont need it immediately but Im going to need some live sand or a few pieces of LR shortly to get my 29g Biocube cycling. Can anyone spare a few lbs.? Id pay of course, just would rather not go to the LFS. Thanks!

Honestly, if no one on here offers just grab a small amount of rubble at LA from their mid-range bin. A little bit goes a long way, and I have emerald crabs and mystery corals (its teal and probably an SPS of some type) popping out of the bigger chunk of rock I bought there.

I have a culture of micro stars I am experimenting with. one inch diameter if you can't find any for free I can sell you a few. The culture is still experimental but I could spare a few. - Mark

yes I will be at Janesville, I can bring you ten of them in a screw cap plastic cup.

Introductory price of 15$ for ten. If i get this colony reproducing as fast as I would like, if it becomes commercial they will be more expensive. they will 3-5 dollars each but as my first customer I think this is a deal. :) I see they sell on EBay for about fifty for ten. I may someday start selling on ebay if I ever have the time anyway. I don't have enough to sell a bunch of these so if a bunch of you ask for them I will not be able to do it but you're locked in for a
