    My talbot damsel pair have spawned a couple of times now in a large empty whelk shell at the front of the tank which the male is aggrssively guarding, even goes for my hand when I put it near the shell and the goes for the magfloat when cleaning glass. There is a massive brood today in the whelk shell and I am wanting to try to grow on the eggs similar to what was done in an Advancedaquarist article from last year. Does anyone know where I can get hold of rotifers in the UK, just looked on ebay but can only find rotifer and copepod mixed. According to this article and marinebreeder.org forum ideally I want to feed with Brachionus rotundiformis.

    Heres the article if anyone is interested:
