    Smile Internet rotifers & refrigeration storage for fry

    Hello and thanks for the very helpful advice. Our clownfish pair (false percs) have decided after 3+ years that its time to lay eggs. They seem to be on an egg laying cycle of about every 10-14 days. I have let the eggs go, as I am not ready to try and raise the fry. After a lot of reading it is clear that the phyto-rotifer cultures are the way to go, but I wanted to find out if purchasing rotifers through the internet and storing refrigerated to feed the fry is a successful method. I am prepared to raise the fry, but not manage the cultures at this time. The two key question I have are (1) will the rotifers purchased through the internet be suitable and (2) is the refrigerated life span really 1-3 weeks. I would appreciate if you could share your experience if you have gone this route. Thanks
