Gammarus pulex

Linnaeus, 1758

Murat Özbek Dear Friends, Do you know anything about amphipod culture? This type of aquaculture seems so interesting for me. As much as I know, it is making in China. Do you have one in your country? Any information on this topic will be welcome :)

Ormphipod Wongkamhaeng My friend in Bangkok, Thailand rears Grandidierella gilesi in his aquarium. http://www.siamensis.org/webboard/topic/6679

Ormphipod Wongkamhaeng http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ib-WBaCtaJg Another amphipod from seagrass bed are living in aquarium. Both are not really amphipod culture but can be in the future.

Jessika Alves In the laboratory that I work, we don't have special methods to maintain amphipod culture, but all of us aquariums with algae or rock have amphipods. it's interesting.

Ivan A. Hinojosa In the Marin Thiel Lab ( http://www.bedim.cl ) we maintained Perampithoe femorata for several months only by changing the algae which they use to live once a week (Macrocystis). Their population increased dramatically.

Stas Malavin Do you read in Russian? I could get pdfs, recognize them for machine translation, or help with translation by myself, if you're interested.

Murat Özbek Unfortunatelly, I can't :-( As much as I could understand, they are what I am looking for. If you can help, it will be nice!

Stas Malavin I will look for them in our library and make copies.

Murat Özbek Thank you Stas :-)
