okay hang in there someone will be along shortly, I believe u can store them live in the fridge, I just read an article on this, but don't hold me to this. Wait for someone with more experience, I don't want to tell you wrong. I have sanfrancisco brine shrimp that are frozen.

When I have them....I keep them in a small container with their water and I add aeration...they will keep for a few days like this...my problem isn't keeping them alive that way...I have not figured out or found anything to feed them to keep them longer than a few days...hope this helps a little

HI Lori,

Thanks for the info. I researched a lot on net and found that you can feed them Wheat floor / yeast etc..... (not tested by me yet). Let me know if you try it.

Also I found some articles talking about storing Adult brine Shrimp in refrigerator (this way their metabolism reduces). The article says, when you want to feed them to your fish, take them out from and bring to normal temp, feed them something before your fish eat them (this way they preserve their nutritious value).

I have stored some of them in my refrigerator .... (I don't know whether they can survive or not but would let you know the result in a couple of days). Hope they survive.
