Aren't your ponies taking to the frozen mysis?

I just checked around online and seems like live pods are a ridiculously lucrative business.
There's one guy on ebay selling them, and he get $50 + $35 s&h for 50 bugs... that works out to $1.70 each!!!
http://cgi.ebay.com/50-LIVE-AMPHIPOD...QQcmdZViewItem

(Dang! That means I've probably got several hundred $$$ worth in my little 10gal refugium alone.)

I also found a place that sells a breeding kit for amphipods with everything to get started for about $40 & s/h at http://www.ipsf.com/#anchor45957
Looks like they have discounts if you buy more than one kit, or combine them with other livestock purchases.

While it's not live pods, I also found two other seahorse food options on ebay.
One is live rotifers for $38 here: http://cgi.ebay.com/Roti-Feast-Rotif...QQcmdZViewItem

The other is a bottle of arctic copepods (dead) for about $30 here: http://cgi.ebay.com/Arcti-Pods-Real-...QQcmdZViewItem

I took a quick glance back at your SH thread, but I didn't see anything there about a refugium...
If I were you I would go grab a cheap 10gal tank with hood for about $20, stick a handful of pod-filled cheato off ebay for $8 in it, and grow your own... heck, make it a fuge for you horsey tank.

My goodness! those of us who have tanks that have been set up for a year or more are sitting on a gold mine. Selling pods at that price I could supplement my addiction to this hobby!!!! LOL That is unbelievable.

They must be like gold, rare; Because My tank has been up with LR and LS for about 14 months, and I have yet to find any pods in my tank.

My little 10gal fuge has only been setup for about 3 months, and you can get an idea of the pod population so far from this pic I just took.
(Could THIS be what my retirement investment looks like?!?) 8)
