I mean if you want to try it go for it :p lol. I just wouldn't go into it expecting it to save you all that much. I did a quick google search seeing if I could find anything about harvesting the eggs at home and couldn't find anything

I've got a whole book on culturing live food and it doesn't say anything about breeding your own brine shrimp. Just says to use quality eggs that come in sealed cans instead of boxes or packets because the hatch rate is more reliable. And that like 90% of the brine shrimp in fish food comes from the Great Salt Lake. o.O

My fry love decaps! When they sink to the bottom, they follow them down and eat them all up. I guess all fry are different.

I may try decaps at some point but right now, live food is where I am focused.

Whatever works, that's the important part.

I just realized that I've never read the first few pages of this thread.... until now.

@Amph: Your bettas are not CT. They might have slight protruding rays, or what you guys call comb tails which won't show in the pictures. But they're definitely not CT.

IMO, your sibling pair are long finned.

If you want to culture your own shrimp, try the fresh water fairy shrimp. Here's where it was discussed. Go to page 6

Fairy shrimp are endangered where I live. My dad worked on a project (engineer) and had to get all sorts of permits to dig in the area because of the fairy shrimp who live there. They're like freshwater sea monkeys, they . . . whatever the term is for dry up and then rehydrate when the rain comes. Read it in a book.
