  1. Default Ghost Shrimp with Eggs. Looking for advice if I want to try hatching them.


    0 Not allowed!
    Hey all, I'm not sure if this topic has been beaten to death, but I couldn't find a good thread that just ran down the requirements for hatching ghost shrimp.

    I currently have a ghost shrimp carrying a clutch of eggs in my 10 gallon guppy tank (soon to be upgrading to a 20 high!). I know if I just leave her in there, the young will just get eaten, which wouldn't be the end of the world. However, I happen to have an unused 2.5 gallon tank and was possibly thinking about taking the effort to try hatching them. However, I don't know what is all needed for it. I have a bubble-filter (which shouldn't suck up all the larvae) that I can move from my 5 gallon fry tank and a heater. What I don't know is if the shrimp require anything in terms of food or salinity. I don't know what baby shrimp would eat.

    I'm just trying to get an idea of how difficult it would be to hatch these guys or if I just want to let them feed my guppies. Any advice would be appreciated!

    Feeding the larvae is the difficult part. I've read some about ghost/glass shrimp breeding and after reading about their failure rate due to feeding difficulties, I stayed with cherry shrimp. The water chemistry for ghost shrimp was also a big factor but I forget the details, sorry.

    Yeah, I wasn't sure about feeding them at all. I do have some really small food I feed to my guppy fry. Called Hikari "First Bites" (http://www.petco.com/product/10906/H...rst-Bites.aspx), but I have no idea if that would nourish or be small enough for ghost shrimp.

    If it's too difficult I imagine I just won't bother... given that ghost shrimp are so cheap anyway.

    Have a read of this thread;

    Baby brine shrimp is what I buy (in the frozen state), for my corals at the local Bigals. It may be worth a shot.
