    Default Brine Shrimp

    Who uses them? Eggs or Decapsulated?

    I use Eggs, hatch them and feed them to free swimming fry.
    I'm interested to know about the Decapsulated eggs too, how to feed and pros and cons with it.

    I found decapsulated hatching eggs that I'm going to try. You can either feed them straight to the fry since they don't have a shell or hatch them like you would regular eggs.

    I feed and hatch the brine shrimp eggs, the fry are more lively, they really love them.

    I only feed decapsulated when my live bbs didn't hatch out.
    Only plus side for the decapsulated is the cheap price. As for feeding decapsulated the fry don't
    seem to like them much so I would put some in
    a bowl of water and zip them 15 to 30 seconds
    in the microwave. The fry seem to like them more
    with the scent of shrimp.

    Thanks Cliff, I didn't really see any benefit regarding price. It actually looks like the regular eggs are cheaper.

    Selcon can be added to the brine shrimp for added
    nutrition.
