    Default Breeding Live food?


    0 Not allowed!
    Ok so I'm curious if anybody on here has tried these... either in the form of rotifers or brine shrimp... since they seem to be the two popular live foods...

    I've been researching how to breed brine shrimp after watching them get devoured by my clowns last night I figure it'd be a good live snack for them and any other live stock which will eventually end up in my tank.

    The shrimp aren't expensive, only around a dollar for a small bag but I was just curious if anybody has tried to breed them before and if anybody knows of any pros or cons to the process
    55g Long --> After 18mo of doing well the tank crashed during moving. Most likely cause: Flatworm Die-off... won't start another until after moving... Likely not until late 2013

    20g Long --> currently concoting a build plan

    Check out the journal to follow my 20g SW tank

    I tried growing copipods for a while. It just took a really long time. I don't think I had the ideal condition.

    Growing foods like these are one of the main functions of a refugium. Try googling around with terms like "refugium invertebrates" or something simular.

    I've currently reading thought that and reseaching the same topic

    You could take a look at the sticky Dave66 wrote in the food sub-forum.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Brine shrimp are a royal pain to learn how to successfully hatch. Everyone messes up a bit the first time or three. After that, it's just a matter of repeating your success. After you work out your particular bugs, it really is as easy as "everyone" says it is.

    The slickest container I've seen recently is one of those narrow - bottom dispenser jugs - made for keeping cold water on tap in your fridge. About $3.00 at Walmart. Drill a small hole in the top for an airline.

    I'm using a commercial sea salt mix for hatching. I have more success this way, than with canning salt.

    Canning salt? What's that? lol

    I'm guessing it is what we call "pickling salt" here. Additive free rock salt.

    If you know anyone who has a water softener and uses Morton 3980-W 50LB XCOR Solar Salt, "borrow" a couple of cups. That's the bags of crystal salt. You'll be set for a long time.

    White, walther, walter, etc. worms are easy too. If you have a better memory for little details like remembering where you put the container and starting new containers, than I do.
