We study probe D5 branes in D3 brane AdS5 and AdS5-Schwarzschild backgrounds as a prototype dual description of strongly coupled 2+1 dimensional quasiparticles. We introduce a chemical potential through the U(1)R symmetry group, U(1) baryon number, and a U(1) of isospin in the multiflavor case. We find the appropriate D5 embeddings in each case—the embeddings do not exhibit the spontaneous symmetry breaking that would be needed for a superconductor. The isospin chemical potential does induce the condensation of charged meson states.
