Live Phytoplankton is very expensive to buy, but growing your own is pretty easy and much cheaper.

Two hatching stations allow me to always have a new…

Buying frozen foods at the local fish store can get pretty expensive over time. Fish need varied diets, so rotating through separate foods each day of the week can be routine, but ask a person to do this for you while you are away and suddenly it seems overly complex. I'd read of others making their own food, and one member showed me his. Man, it was great! Not only did he save money, but…
