But apparently they'll put unquarantined live goods in their tank from a source of unknown quality, solely because it's purchased in a packaged bottle.

They ain't that hardcore. 8)

I started this thread long ago then abandoned it. I've been off the site for awhile. Apologies.

Response to rotifer sales here are mixed, at best. I have several retailers that buy rotifers from me when I deliver fish, but shelf life is the biggest issue. I can't deliver enough at a time to make it worth while.

We have an active reef club in the Kansas City area. They are associated to an even more active local reef keepers forum, of which I am a sponsor. They have monthly meetings that include frag swaps and lots of trading. I have success selling at these meetings and it seems to be the best outlet for me.

What shelf life are you geetting? If packaged in full strength phyto, they should last 3-4 weeks in the fridge. 38 deg is optimal I'm told.
