Cool Ghost Shrimp Fry

So, I bought 30 ghost shrimps for my bettas tanks.

However, 20 of them were mommies holding eggs.

I put each female in a 1g jar with a filter, and wanted to hatch eggs.

They hatched earlier today.

I'm going to let the fry grow up a little bit, then (this sounds cruel) put them on cookie sheets and either freeze them or bake them in the oven to use as "treats" for my bettas.

I might buy a food dehydrator too.

I have this vision of a post shortly that goes something like...

"I spent 100 bucks on a dehydrator and I'm back on the couch!"


Please, if they're her cookie sheets, for your own safety; Ask her first!

I wanna know how they 'turn out'. Hehe. Ew!

Oh God no she didn't let me use her $200 "Paula Deen" cookie sheets. I went out and bought cheap ones. :D Lol shes an abusively-loving sweet wife if that makes sense. I'm going to try dehydrating them in the oven once their a week old.

I understand about your wife! I'm a terror in my kitchen. I guess that's why I mentioned it. Lol! My husband won't touch anything in there without asking me first.

It's true, they might enjoy the fry live. They could hunt them, which would be good enrichment.
