    No more Amphipods

    Thanks all - i will try to find locals who can give me a hand ful of chaeto. Do all you agree that sand is needed on top of what I am using, which is rubble? Also, Phil 519 is correct, I was looking for Amphipods not copepods Also, I will try to exchange a rock with a local. Thanks again!
