Thanks Bambi, i only ask because everything i read wither didn't mention salt, or was very different than my directions.

Anyway Daddy's out, Babies have some EY in with them, BBS hatchery is built and running. Backup hatchery is built. The babies i can find look good but i have so many plants in there there's not telling how many there are. When daddy was watching the nest there seemed to be at least 50, but now that there out swimming i can only find 3-4 at a time. I want to get pictures or something but they're so small i can't get the camera to focus on them.

You need the salt, they are salt water shrimps. But rinse before feeding to fry.

I haven't used BBS in a long time.
I used to use a home made net. I changed the ... net(?) .... to a cloth (handkerchief). You have to be extra careful though because water takes time to get through, specially when you have BBS stuck in there.
I've heard other members use a coffee filter or something.... not sure what that looks like.

Ok cleaned up some and took this video, just fed them tho so there's tons of BBS swimming around in there. I have right around 20, some big, some little. Most seem to swim and eat pretty good.

Very cute! :D I harvest my BBS with a turkey baster and strain them with a coffee filter :) Works really well. I have a small jam jar that I sit the coffee filter in while it drains the water

Yeah the coffee filter is working great, thanks.

Removed the plants and come to find i have somewhere right around 40 fry. They are huge for their age. 8mm or so with the couple runts at 5mm.
