I need help with culturing larval nudibranchs

November 20, 1998
From: Roberto Moresco

My name is Roberto Moresco and I 'm looking for culturing the Mediterranean doridacea Discodoris atromaculata and Hypselodoris tricolor . The food we use is phytoplankton (Monocrisis and Tetraselmis ). We are able to arrive to the larval development. Is there anyone who knows help me to arrive to Juveniles development?

Dear Roberto,
From your earlier messages it seems you are making some progress. Hopefully someone can
give you advice. It seems you can keep the veliger larvae alive. Is your problem that you don't know how to get them to settle on to the substrate? .. Bill Rudman
