i'd like to keep making additions to the first post but the system wont let me.

it's raining fish right now! lots of babies are falling from the nest and trying to swim back up. the poor father is working so hard trying to keep up. i feel so bad cuz he hasn't eaten in 4 days and it wont be for another couple of days before he gets any food.

He'll be okay. I didn't feed Merlin until he looked like he had no energy left. He stopped picking them up and just layed there. But bettas can go like 4 weeks without eating or something like that. He'll be okay.

how is the brine shrimp working for you? i might do the same and skip the egg yolk completely.

got any tips on harvesting? i have both shrimp eggs and salt. the only problem is that i own only one air pump with tubing, but no air stones. think it'll be enough to aerate? if i plan on harvesting brine shrimps 12 hours apart, will i need two separate air pumps?

And no you wont need two separate air pumps. You might need two jars though. Once they eggs hatch I stop their aeration and start a new batch.

thanks for taking the time to show me your pictures.

is the purpose of a gang valve to allow for multiple tubing using a single air pump? if so, are you using one?

I've never used one, lol. I think a gang valve slows down the aeration.
