I'm starting a fairy shrimp tank.
They hatched yesterday and last night.
3 varieties of fairy shrimp and moina too.
We'll see what I get and if they live.
At least 30 in there now. Tiny.

Just the tank. I try to get picks of them later.

I have Beavertail Fairy Shrimp growing right now. For whatever reason, they're not growing very fast.

They look good. The guy I bought from recommends chlorella for food. I'm trying that with mine.

I'm feeding yeast right now. That could be a contributing factor in their slow growth.

Yeast is recommended by most sites I read. Bread yeast more than brewers yeast. This company seems to think Chlorella is more effective for them. They caution on overfeeding and causing an ammonia spike. You're doing good if you have gotten as far as you have.
