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.

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

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..
