    I have several small juvie fish that I a feeding live brine, but if I want to grow the shrimp out a bit, but also keep them nutritious after their first 24 hours, what can I feed them?

    I know brine is only nutritious after the first 24 hours, but surely if they are fed on something nutritious this will help. How do I grow them out and keep them nutritious?

    This is only true when you are not enriching the brine before feeding. Brine shrimp over the 24 hour period is widely used for raising fry. Think of the older brine shrimp as an empty pill capsul. If you add nutrition to the water, the shrimp feed on the ingredients, filling the capsul, this is then transfered to your livestock.

    Newly hatched brine shrimp is very important to fry that can not eat the larger brine. Therefore it is important to feed them the brine that still has the yolk sac.
