I found these notes on growing on brineshrimp by an aquaintance of mine, Alan Green, long time fish house manager for a major UK importer. He claims that this is the cheapest livefood that you can get, I have seen it done, and it works.

Yes Alan's site appears to be down. I believe that he has gone to Columbia on a fish collecting trip with Tim Addis, It will be available in a month or so when they get back.
Phill.

Awesome. Thanks Phil. 1 more live food source certainly can't hurt my altums breeding chances.

Thnx for the link. I feed to BBS to my Corydoras fry all the time, but I have never been able to raise Brine Shrimp to a size that larger angels like. I will have a try again!

Update: No matter what I tried I could not get the shrimp past day 4. I tried feeding more and less with the same result. Anyone else give it a try?

I plan to try it too.

will let you know the results.

I tried fairy shrimp before, but the cost of fairy shrimp egg is way too high compare to brine shrimp egg.
It lived for couple month before I stop the experience.

James,
I have since moved on to cherry shrimp. Extremely prolific, easy to care for and best of all the altum love them.

I have a 10G RCS tank, I don't know the number, but I guess should be couple hundreds of it. I found that make the water a little bit green would help. pearl grass is very good for RCS.
I use ADA amazonia as substrate.

I will start a new 20G RCS soon.

I will try the brine shrimp with 10G tank per article.

I've never done this before...but I took the plunge with a SanFrancisco apparatus (+soda bottle)...and it really work...billions of babies...I fed some to the albinos and they went nuts...same with the discus tank and dithers...Now to raise them up...found this guy David Ramsey on U Tube...very easy and primitive, but it looks like I may have adults in a couple of weeks...today, I'll start a new batch of babies...Hey, live food...at last...Ken
