My fish love it
They didn’t eat it
We just got this in our order on Friday. I bought this product last week because our new mama guppies began dropping fry within hours of bringing them home from the local fish store (1/2 black blue female within 1 hour, 1/2 black purple cobra female in 1 day and 1/2 black green female in 36 hours). These fish, we bought on May 4th. The blue diamond type male we bought at the same store, several weeks before and about 5 females at the same time. The male was the only survivor of that bunch, as the fish had just come in the day before, the overcrowded females were very stressed). The 3 girls we got on May 4th did a good job of redeeming their deceased sisters...10 fry managed to evade the mothers. They were moved to a gallon jar with a little gravel, live plants, a betta heater and one of the mini intake sponges sold here (which hubby modified for me into a tiny sponge filter...sawing the base off a spent shotgun shell (it was the correct diameter) drilling holes in the tube part of it, then fitted with a never-clog air-stone attached to tubing... it filters okay for this size of set up (as it's a temporary home for the babies.) The babies were eating just so-so on powdered fish food, but most of it was just making a mess (not really worried about the leftovers, as long as water quality is good), probably growing but it wasn't really noticeable. Started feeding Instant Baby Brine on Friday, 2 days later they have grown about 33% bigger! The parents and their tankmates (M/F pair of ghost shrimp and 2 corys) are really loving it too!
It's been over 30 years since I tried hatching brine shrimp myself. I was a 5th grader and I remember it being a pain in the rear. In high school and college I fed frozen baby brine to my baby angelfish. Now, as a homeschooling mom of 3 on a busy farm (and with both dogs and cats in the house), I'm thankful there is an alternative to the fuss of messing with the brine shrimp hatchery that the cats would knock over.
Feeding to Bacardi fry, and they love it. It's really easy to feed very convenient. I use a small syringe to put it into tank. Don't forget to refrigerate after opening
