It's here! Star Grass (Halophila engelmannii). This is among the most hardy and fastest growing of all our sea grasses. It is a relatively small grass in comparison to the tall Shoal, Manatee, and Turtle grasses. This is also one of the more delicate leaves of the grasses. It's delicate leaves make it a little more susceptible to herbivores. It can be difficult to find, so get it while it's available. Pictured to the right is 3 stems w/leaves with 1 new shoot starting on the right hand end.

The story has it, from the source, that Julian Sprung had collected several of these unique snails on a trip to the Bahamas and released them in Florida. They are doing quite well in their new, transplanted home. THEY WILL NOT CLIMB OUT OF YOUR TANK!!

Copepods
We now carry cultured copepods. You will receive a small bag of hundreds of these tiny microfauna. These copepods are cultured, collected and bagged here at FloridaPets. Our Copepods are benthic and approx 200-500 microns in size. Benthic means that they are NOT free swimming, but will crawl along your rockwork, substrate, plants, etc. Although they are much smaller than Amphipods, fish find them easily. Upon receipt of your bag, you will not find them as easily. You will need to empty the bag (with some of your tank water) into a clear container and sit this container in front of a very bright light. Remember, you will not find them swimming within the water. Concentrate on the front of your container. More information about Copepods will be contained within your confirmation letter. If you have questions, do not hesitate to ask! Please email or call.

These will be available upon request or through auction sites and soon on SnailsbyMail.com. These will still be shipped from South Carolina. Must be ordered separately from FloridaPets order.

Galapagos Cleaner Shrimp
These are beautiful little shrimp. They are considered a cleaner shrimp, but rarely feel comfortable enough to fully leave their hide out. They are a small yet very attractive addition to almost any aquarium. They will generally hide out under rock out cropings or among macro algae. They most likely will eat flake foods or frozen Brine shrimp. They will become very active at feeding times. Use caution if large fish or wrasses are present. These were taken from a tank containing a few moray eels. The shrimp were joyfully cleaning the morays mouths and gills.
