Anyone ever keep Caprellidae?


Recommended Posts

I mean I kept them in a lab so it’s kinda cheating haha I don’t really know what their requirements are especially the tropical variety you would potentially find in the hobby. 
 

They just grab ahold of their favorite species of coral or eel grass and grab things out of the water column from what ive observed

I don't know anyone that keeps them in culture.  I know people who have had them in tanks.  But not succeeded long-term.  I think you are correct, they would make a great live feeder.  The trouble is culturing them, especially at a density that would make the effort worth it.  That latter bit ends up dropping out many potential feeders from being contenders for successful culture.  I'm attempting the process right now with a new feeder.  Well, I've been working on it for 2 years.  I can keep them.  But they rarely reach a density that makes sense to continue for the effort I put into the endeavor.  It is my windmill to tilt at!
