Your LFS should have them.

Keep in mind that feeding fish like Silversides that have bones in them adds significantly more phosphate to your tank than feeding something like krill. Also, watch grocery store foods for phosphate additives which are used as preservatives and flavor enhancers.

Thanks for the tip Mindy and everyone who responded. I went to Wai (LF) got some Hikari. I read about grocery silversides.

oh no! I didn't know about the preservatives. The one I got is fresh and not the frozen kind. I wash it before I feed it to my nem and give only half. My lobster loves it too and thankfully, no one died so far. I better stop feeding it to them.

Check the label, or ask the butcher. Not all of them have preservatives.
