    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...

    I've housed a citron for a few weeks now in a nano. He has readily recognized my white turkey baster as a food source and nibbles at it before I expel the frozen brine shrimp he eats. I feed him once every day before I go to bed. He is in with an azure and a small occellaris clown (who is a...

    How often do you guys feed your fish? It seems that I feed mine more than I should since I enjoy watching them eat, but that might cause more trouble than good. What you guys think? :thumbup:

    Hey guys I got a pair of clown fish in a 40 gallon. They are the only inhabitants besides a xenia and some blue leg hermit crabs. I also have some a pair of blue damsels in the 30 gallon sump. I got the pair of clowns about a week ago and at first one of them was not eating. The other eats...

    Okay. So I was testing out different foods today, for my clownfish of course. I tried flakes, no luck, he would pull it off the surface then rip it up and not be able to eat it. Then, I tried brine shrimp, HE LOVED THEM! Then I realized that one of my corals was eating them too, so I decided to...
