Re: brine shrimp

Its hard to grow them up from what I have read online. You will need greenwater or the like for food, as they are filter feeders. Doesnt take too long for them to grow up if you can house them right though.

If i drew it it'd look like a monkey eating a horsradish on the moon or something

Re: brine shrimp

Newly hatched bbs have the highest nutritional value within the first 4 hours of hatching. If you do not supply them with food to gut load them, they become "empty calories" for fish and corals. I used a product called Super Selco. I'm not sure how to get them to grow faster, but if you use decapsulated eggs, you can get them to hatch in as wary as 12 hours. HTH

Re: brine shrimp

I've gotten them to hatch but I want them to get bigger so I can feed my bigger fish. I've seen some guy on YouTube just dumps all the containers into tubs sitting n his yard with covers an leaves them there for a few weeks an then scoops them out an they r about 1\2 in
