I have two questions about mysis shrimp-- one for the marine forums and one that I think is more appropriate for the freshwater forums. Here's my marine question.

I have the small HOB Aquafuge refugium for my 30 gallon marine tank. This refugium is 12"x4"x4" and has 3" live sand, some small pieces of live rock, and some red and green gracilaria macro algae.

I have read about keeping mysis shrimp in a refugium, but am unsure if mine is too small for culturing these guys. Could anyone give me personal experiences or point to some resources?

I'd appreciate it, and thanks in advance-

Just about any fuge should work. Mysis shrimp and pods just need a safe place as to where they don't all get eaten. I don't have a fuge but I find critters in my emporer filter all the time they call it home I guess. And thats a lot smaller than what you have.
