Dear Geoff,

I used MS222 successfully in narcotising nephtyids. Recovery from 
the anaesthetic is excellent. It also has the advantage from the 
point of view of photography of being active at very low 
concentrations so there's no powder/refractive index change.

It's nasty stuff though so requires appropriate safety procedures in 
handling it.

Can I recommend: Smaldon, G & Lee, E.W. (1979) A synopsis of 
methods for the narcotisation of marine invertebrates. Royal 
Scottish Museum, Edinburgh.	96pp. ISSN 0307-5036

This is a useful publication that offers a number of suitable 
methods for a wide range of inverts.

Happy photographing,
Matt
