Well estimate each fry eating 4-5 brine shrimp per meal. So you'll need enough to fit those needs.

I did an experiment about a month ago: Hatcheries that have aeration don't hatch as fast or with as many shrimp as other ones. The one I use now is a black box with a clear collecting vial. No aeration.

In the video it looks like Merlin is getting to go to under the nest. I think they might be ready! Too bad you have to wait until tomorrow though. I hope they do great together! Good luck!

Well here's the pics. I think they're ready now too.

Bubblenest at 6


So opinions, if I release her now...do you think they'll spawn tonight? I'm kinda weary about leaving them alone tonight, plus I have a friend over. But I think they're ready.

Mr. Vamp, so no aeration? I was going to use a mason jar, is that okay?

My hatchery is designed to go without aeration. A mason jar wouldn't work like mine. Just set up the hatchery like you were going to.

BTW, you should release her. I know you like to check on them but I almost never check on my pairs. Bettas don't like knowing they're being watched.

Okay then. I'm going to release her. I'll be on and off for a while. Actually my friend has a laptop I can probably get on. So I'll stay on here and keep everyone updated.

Okay so I can't post the videos right now.
But is it okay that Merlin is chasing her around? He's nipping a bit too. But she doesn't seem stressed, her stripes are still out.
