baby brine shrimp

  1. General Reef Discussion
    So I want to start hatching baby brine shrimp as this is what all my fish eat (the frozen kind right now) I was looking at Brine Shrimp Direct. What is the difference between these 2 kits and will both work very well? I was just wondering why one is only $11 and one was $27. I have never...

    So I currently have one clown goby, one clownfish, one bangaii cardinal, one ywg, and one elegant blenny. All are 2 inches or under. My clown goby hasn't been eating enough lately, so I thought I would try some BBS. When I tried, all the fish noticed it was in the water, but the clown was the...

    So, I've been doing research about making a baby brine shrimp hatchery and I know they're a good source of protein. Would you recommend feeding my adult fish baby brine shrimp and if so, how often? What is your experience with them? Thanks!
  4. Seahorses & Pipefish
    Hi everyone, I was looking to buy two pairs of captive bred H. zosterae (Dwarf seahorses) for the seahorse tank I will start in the near future. I've been researching a lot, and for my ideal tank, they are the best option. But, all my research says that they must be fed baby brine shrimp eggs...

    One thing I always dread when it comes to my dwarf seahorse tanks, is hydroids. Hydroids have ruined at least two of my major setups over the years. I'm posting this here, in the general reef area, rather than the seahorse area, because there are other reasons to use baby brine shrimp, and...

    A short introduction of myself; my name is Chad Vossen; I’m 20 years old and live in MN. I have successfully raised 3 peppermint shrimp, with more to settle soon. I could have had more success, but I had two massive die offs that were human error. My larval shrimp tank is very basic; it’s a...

    Since still only being 17 and sometimes and not always being able to give the tank 24/7 attention (as im sure almost everyone else isn't either!) I like to try and keep things as maintenance free as possible...cleaning the glass,lights, cleaning the collection cup are basically the only things I...

    My silly hubby is so nice to buy me new things. However, I am very picky about what goes in my tank. He came home with a monster orange spnge that was so big I had to break it and put it in 2 tanks. Also he bought a really pretty sea fan but I know they are hard to maintain. So here is a...

    Well I came home late last night and fond hundreds of baby fry in my tank. Not quit sure what they are as I have a pair of Chromis and Maroon Clowns. They are so small that I am unable to get a good pic to post (camera wont focus). We can only hope they livelonger than the Seahorses that breed...

    Hi Reef Tank, I will be attempting to move my 27 gallon reef tank from Eugene, Oregon to Houston, Texas. The drive will take 3 days. I plan to pack everything as if for trans-shipping and set the tank back up exactly as it stands now in Eugene. I will not be restricted by...

    I'm looking into some stuff to suggest we carry at work for products, we have mostly API and Wardley stuff.... we have no reef additives, no salt water meds, and we don't have a line of SW foods other than Sally's Frozen (which is great stuff).... I was hoping to pick some brains and get...
