What do you feed these tiny specks?
I have frozen baby brine shrimp. Will they work?
...and are baby shrimp called fry? (as in fry shrimp?)
Thanks,
Rick

amano fry - cool :mrgreen:

hmmm I feed sinking pellets/sticks to my cherry shrimp and crayfish larvae - I like the veggie sticks from www.kensfish.com but in a pinch you should be able to use algae wafers.
I don't think these are filter feeders, so any sinking veggie food that softens should work (if they are filter feeders I would use phyto plankton, same stuff I'd use to feed a reef tank)

Are these in a brackish tank ? I haven't heard of anybody successfully breeding them in freshwater...

Well, I wrote with anticipation; no fry yet, just eggs on glass. I stopped by and spoke at length with Anthony. As a result, I have algae wafers for feeding and dumped in some marine water for brackish effect. We'll see what happens...
