Live brine shirmp how much...

How much live brine shrimp should I be feeding Sushi, my baby (think hes about 8-9 weeks) and how often?

I bought some today and gave him what was less than a 1/8tsp and I swear there were at least 100 shrimps in there. After watching him in betta heaven I got so nervous I did a full water change and as I was dumping it, I saw tons more that were at the bottom hiding.

Also, when is a baby concidered an adult? I rememer reading (i don't remember where) that the babies need more protein and it's diet should be strictly live shirmp or mosquito larve (which I'm still trying to figure out if I have any in my baby pool outside from the last few rains. It's light green and cloudy.

phew, sorry for the ramble!

Feed 3-4 times a day, but I'm not sure about how many shrimps to feed. But remember, a Betta's tummy is the size of it's eye or even smaller. So be careful with that. Betta Fish are considered adults when they have gotten their finnage. About 6 months they should be one. And don't forget high temperature for babies.

Yup. But not during the Playoffs. He's not my favorite player, or in my favorite team. But, he's a good player.
