Mr. Rudman,
many thanks for your answer. I would like to Know which phitoplancon species are good for Nudibranchia larval culturing (captivity).

I'm afraid you will need to consult one of the experts I suggested. I think most nudibranch larvae will eat a range of phytoplankton. What is important is which species of phytoplankton you can culture in your laboratory.

If anyone has any information or advice could you send a message to the Forum .. Bill Rudman.
