Lightbulb Egg Brine Spray

Has anyone tried this? Do you guys think it would even work for days 3-14?

1 part Hard boiled egg yolk
1 part frozen brine shrimp
2 parts tank water

Blend in a food processor (or grind with a motor & pestle)
Place slurry in a spray bottle, dilute with an extra 2 parts tank water

Feed 2 sprays, 2 times daily with a 75% WC after the final spray
(shake well, refrigerate, and discard mixture after 24 hours)

I don't think two sprays of that mixture would be adequate for a normal sized spawn but overall it could work. I don't like using egg yolk mixture since micro critters are what I'm more comfortable with them but I'd be interested to hear how that works for you.

question: can bbs be cleaned and then placed in the freezer for later feeding? or will it lose even more nutrients that way? im asking because i think i had made alittle too much yesterday.

IMO freshly frozen live food (except tubefix) won't loose much nutrients. The problem I often face is that my bettas won't eat non live if they are used to live food.

I have found if you feed live and dry together.. eventually weaning off the live.. they will accept it easier.

Is anyone familiar with the nutritional content of newly hatched fairy shrimp for fry food?

I believe fairy shrimp are the freshwater version of BBS so I think they would be similar and probably live longer in your fry tank.

That is what I read as well...has anyone tried any???? I have always wanted to get some and check them out...if anything to see if they would live longer term in the tank for more of a free range feeding.....one day I will order some...lol.....anyone know of any US supply to order eggs from...if so post a link for me-I have only been able to find oversea supply.....or if anyone has ever hatched or used them....interested in personal experiences with them....
