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