    Hi,
    I'm looking for some sort of brineshrimp hatchery that can continuously feed my Antheas.

    Yes -yes it was an impulsive buy. But now I need to feed these guys a bit more.

    They're not taking to pellets at the moment.
    I'm feeding pellets 3 times daily - for my chromise & other livestock.

    So I've read that brineshimp can do the trick, but also that the fish need constant feeding..

    I've came across this product:
    Continuous Hatch 'N Feeder

    Any sponsor that can get that, or something similar?

    Hi,
    Anyone (even none sponsor) with any cool DIY or second hand brineshimp hatchery that can be used in-tank?
    Mods - do I have to create a separate thread in the "for sale/looking for" forums for this?
    Or can it stay here?

    thx

    I'm looking for a more "automated" approach... But thanks.

    Will probably go for this if all else fail.

    Oh - any sponsor with good Brineshimp eggs?
    (And that will ship tomorrow?)

    looking good...
    But this won't help me with auto-feeding ...will def take a closer look at this if I don't come right with the auto-feeding thing.

    Why don't you just use frozen foods.

    Hi,
    The antheas is not going for my frozen food at this stage.. :-(

    And I want to get a mandrin later on as well. (Only when I have sorted out the auto feeding of the BS)

    Carcharias - the brine shrimp feeder is a waste of time, it has a minute success , continuously brakes free from the side and delivers minutes amount of brine shrimp. You need to set up a large brine shrimp hatchery and rather concentrate on large volumes of food at one time or even create a small holder allowing the hatched shrimp to swim towards the light (excuse the pun).

    Also keep your ammonia spike in mind, the hatching brine shrimp often manage to deplete there own oxygen or increase ammonia levels and die. Really sorry to be the bearer of bad news but it's back to the old school method for success

    Feed them cyclops. When feeding only brine shrimps their color will fade. They will eat cyclops from the start.
