It really depends on the size of the refugium. If you only have a small fuge (a gallon or less) I would only add copepods. A refugium larger than 1 gallon I'd also add amphipods. For larger fuges (5+ gallons) I'd add copepods, amphipods and mysis. Mysis and Amphipods are good at surviving in a DT tank too. If you add them at night when your lights are off they will find their way into rock crevices where they can hide and reproduce. If you shine a flashlight in my live rocks at night you wouldn't believe the quantity of mysis living in the crevices.

The order is paid for. We ended up with a total discount of 10%. 5% was based on total cost. The other 5% was a throw in of the heated box and shipping supplies. Besides the monetary savings I was told that everyone's orders were "beefed up".

Since the order is arriving Friday, it will be delivered to my apartment on 22nd and 7th in Manhattan. Shoot me a PM and let me know when you are planning to pick up.

Those of you who paid via PayPal you have already received the 5% discount refunded to you :). Those who paid cash I will give you the 5% when you pick up.
