    I don't know if this is the right category for this, but I want to expand my pea puffers diet + I've heard that brine shrimp are good for them. Can I raise brine shrimp? Do I just have to buy new batches every week? Google has (unfortunately) been Very confusing, so literally any info is appreciated lol

    You can buy brine shrimp eggs online and set up your own hatchery. You just dissolve salt (not iodized) into the water and add the eggs. Put a light (a desk light or bright flashlight is easiest) next to the container for 24 hours. After a day you should see the hatched baby brine shrimp. You can siphon out the BBS to avoid the eggs. Make sure to rinse out the shrimp to get rid of the salt before adding them to the tank. I would look up "Solid Gold Aquatics" on youtube and look at her DIY brine shrimp hatchery. It's pretty helpful!
