    You dont need any of that.
    Baby seahorses can eat brine shrimp right away so no need for rotifers.

    No worries.
    There are loads of pages on the web that deal with breeding the little guys.
    Baby seahorses can eat live food / brine shrimp from birth so feeding them is not a problem.

    Many new born seahorses can take nhbs, but a lot of species will do better with rotifer as the first food. Hopefully you have already mastered the art of decapsulating BS eggs. If not do a search for decapsulating, it is easier than it sounds and the hatch results will be quicker and better with the quality of the nhbs also being better nutritionally. if you have no success getting phytoplankton then get hold of Dan's Feed or other supplementary foods suitable to enrich the bbs. If you do get phytoplankton then raise the bbs on the phytoplankton and enrich the bbs on the Dan's Feed for 24 hours before feeding it. Don't be too disappointed if your first attempt is unsuccessful (or several attempts), it is all practice.
