Chaetognath culture?

Postby Anthony Calfo » Tue Mar 09, 2010 2:22 pm


Just wondering here if anyone has any experience or leads with culturing a (any) Chaetognath species?

As a significant - although often distant second to copepods - plankter for corals, it crossed my mind that they might be worth culturing for aquarium specimens (inverts and some fishes).

I see perspectives on the simplicity of their life cycle, or not, as well as seemingly good potential to raise them (easy feeding in some cases). But after a casual search I can't seem to find any recent information or activity on their home or lab culture.

Seems like it might be a worthwhile discussion here?

I know this was posted a few years ago, but I'd like to rehash the discussion topic, due to current projects.

Anyone know of any information on Chaetognath (arrow worm) culture?
