    I am looking to add a couple of seahorses to the 40 breeder in the library. It has a healthy supply of pods in it already, but I am worried that adding a couple of seahorses might decimate those numbers and I am looking for an alternative. I have seen those live brine shrimp in tank feeders, but was wondering if anyone had something on a larger scale or another idea for a live feeder for in the tank.

    mini fridge with a dosing pump and line from the tank into the fridge back into the tank to auto dose frozen. Check out what I did in my 104g tank.

    I have seen plans for those but I always wondered about the food left in the line.

    the food in the line is in the fridge so its a non issue. There is always water running from the tank into the fridge and then back to the tank.

    Check out RC. With the newer DOS pump and 2 way pump. Guy used a single bottle wine cooler thing to store food. It would pump a tiny amount of tank water into food resevoir to stir it up. Then meter it into tank, and finally a brief reverse to clear the line.

    So you get a reservoir of some tank water, thaw out some frozen food in it, put that mixture in a mini fridge, run a dosing pump sucking water from the tank through the food mix, then into the tank?

    So I could go on vacation for a week, and not worry about feeding my fish? If so, that is awesome!

    Why so complicated? I have a pair of kuda in a 10g aio by themselves. Feed them mysis and reef frenzy daily. Just get tank raised so you can feed frozen
