Brine Shrimp Hatchery Question

    Finally got high quality eggs and they hatched for me. It's been 26 hours now, the water is orange and I see the hatched shrimp. I was wondering if I should turn it off and feed the fry or let it run a bit more to get some more hatches? First time with this stuff, so not sure. Thanks

    It is time to feed the fish. The shrimp that have already hatched are absorbing egg sacs. The eggs that are slow to hatch are next to nothing. It is like leaving the bag of popcorn in the microwave to get "all" the kernels to pop - before that happens, you will lose the popcorn that popped early.

    Awesome, thanks. Also, any idea where I can get some good quality spirulina powder? I have a spare 5G, I want to raise these guys for the fry tank, and the main tank

    Check out Brine Shrimp Direct - they have a big write-up on raising brine shrimp. Their was a thread on here a few weeks ago about raising brine shrimp.
