sorry it took so long to respond...i forgot that i posted this
silversides are actually saltwater minnows (Menidia berylina http://animaldiversity.ummz.umich.ed...beryllina.html ) i get them from www.aquaculturestore.com .....

update on the tank....i have 30 silversides swimming in the main tank and the grouper loves them. i like to watch him chase them around. and i have 40 in the refuge, and i am hoping they will breed.

its actually pretty easy to net them cuz they are on the surface.....and thanks for the comment, i really love this tank. he is the only fish(besides the silversides) in a reef tank and its awesome!!
