Preggo ghost shrimp

My one ghost is now preggo, what should i do

Hello there, the angel from my nightmare
The shadow in the background of the morgue
The unsuspecting victim of darkness in the valley
We can live like Jack & Sally if we want
Where you can always find me
We'll have Halloween on Christmas
And in the night we'll wish this never ends
We'll wish this never ends.

I Miss You

Sorry to say the fry die of starvation. They eat food like micro organisms rarely available in aquariums but the adults are easy to care for. Ghost shrimp farms usually use ponds of water the shrimp breed and the micro organisms theyeat are there.

Throw a lettuce leaf in a jar and let in the sun, that will create infusoria and drop them in the aquarium to feed them.

Dedicated to a soul, i let go away ages ago:

Why do you think it won't work? It's certainly worth a try if you've got nothing else to feed them.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

It is worth a try I am just convinced if it was that easy then many people would do that same with the places that make them. It might not grow the right mix the micro organisms might be too small.

Well. I DO think infusoria would work.. I just don't think many people have the confidence to try it.. I use ti raise ghost shrimp.. Not really, lol.. I had multiple ghost shrimp in a HEAVILY planted 5 gallon with one betta.. They bred and had many babies.. I think why the fish actually survived is because I fed crushed up flakes and because of the naturally produced infusoria. I saw the Ghosties eating the Betta Flakes

Any tank with live plants will contain infusoria.. For all you non-believers, here is a video taken by member Beckyfish97 a while back, hope the link still works..
