Oh, no! I'm sorry he ate all the fry. I'm sorry about the brine shrimp eggs, too.

Sorry about your fry. The male might have missed some if you immediately remove him.
Read Creat's thread, I just posted on how I artificially hatch. Or you could try the method used in bettysplenden.

Are you sure you didn't get de-caps.. those are brine shrimp eggs that don't hatch.. I think they're also called golden pearls.

I don't remember the brand of brineshrimp I got. Just that it was 95% hatch rate and did really well. I don't use live brine shrimp now so maybe someone else will give in put on where they get theirs.

Thanks I'll check that out!

I'll do some Amazon searching for eggs. I'll make sure I check for the Hatch percentage.

I use that exact same brand and they work okay for me. A lot of them still don't hatch but I usually get about a 55% hatch rate.

I use those eggs and get most of the shrimp to hatch...MY hatcher is a 2 gallon half filled with a broken heater (has heated up to over 90*F before). I use McCafe cups with airstones and place them in the tank. I get hatching very quickly.

Did you clean out your spawn tank yet? If not keep checking he might have miss some and they can hatch without the dad. If you find any good luck.
