Hi! So I was at my LFS the other day and saw some brine shrimp eggs. I'm currently raising about 40-50ish guppy fry and I'm wondering if I can feed them brine shrimp eggs. The fry are only about 2.5 weeks old, but they are fairly large, as I'm keeping them in one of my 20 gallon tanks.

Hello!

You don’t want to feed brine shrimp eggs; the hard shell can actually cause blockages and lead to death; and there isn’t a lot of nutrition that way anywho. However, newly hatched brine shrimp is much better and super easy to hatch

TBH that's what I thought! I'll probably purchase some instant baby brine shrimp on Amazon.com. Thank you!
