Tisbe pods

Iíve done tons and tons of research
If you have a good site let me know , but I have already probably seen it.
Imeven reading scientific journals.
Anyway, going to take the plunge to breed.
Iím getting so many mixed messages of the size sleeve to use to culture.
Iím getting a huge range 50,53 even 100.
Whatís the best size to get to keep maintaining my culture.
Assuming I drain and dump the remaining strained water back to my container so Iím getting the adults to feed put.
What size micron should I get?
Also I canít make my own phyto, what do you suggest is the best to feed

What are you trying to feed. If you can't culture your own phytoplankton buying enough to feed your pods might be kinda expensive. Might be just better buying pods.

I get 2 bottles from marine depot every 3 months are so. I had a lot of luck with hatching brine shrimp and adding a feeder to my tank. My mandarin was very skinny when I got him, after he fattened up I stopped with the brine.
