    Buy them live. Do a google search, they are out there. You get a jar full of them for around $20.

    Some LFS sell little pouches with live pods in them. Ask around, my LFS has them for $14.99. Luna

    Havent been home yet, but this morning I shined a flash light to the tank and it was walking around the tank. I just hope that it doesnt "see" the nemo eggs. I know that the parents are fierce when it comes to protecting their eggs, but this shrimp is 4 1/2" long. He's a big MF. When I get home I'll make an assessment. Luna

    I had a northern pike do the same thing while I was ice fishing. I caught him threw him on the ice continued to fish for a couple hours, then loaded him and then pan fish up with no water put him in the back room in a bucket of water to thaw him out. When I came back after an hour reached in and got quite a suprise and a scratched hand. Needless to say he was delicious!

    Research has proven that lowering the temperature of people from 98.6 to as low as 92 whom suffer from a heart attack, stroke, or anything else life threatening keeps cells from committing suicide. With drugs to help the uncontrollable shivering people stand a very good chance of surviving. This type of care has been instituted on a trial basis for some of the advance helo and ambulance crews around DC. Funny I remember from movies like Aliens where everyone went to sleep for an extended period of in cryostasis(sp). Next thing you know we will all be beamed to different places instead of driving.

    Good for you! I don't like to fish now that I have a fish tank. I don't know, something about being baited with tasty food, pierced through the mouth with an extremely sharp hook, dragged through the water, then suffocated just doesn't sound appealing to me for some reason!
