    Mine are hatched still in with parents. Brine kit hasn't come, picking up hikari first bites. Fingers crossed

    None of them really eat the eggs. In fact you are not even trying to get them to eat the shrimp. What you are tying to do is to get them to eat the egg sack of the fresh hatched BBS. That is why it is critical to feed the shrimp to your fish as soon as the shrimp hatches out. Once they absorb their egg sack they are not really nutritious. That is why I always get a kick out of people that want to feed their fish adult brine shrimp. It is kind of like us eating a plain salad....it might sere as roughage but does little else.

    John,

    when I said mine eat the babies, not the eggs, I meant my adult angels. they ate every hatched 2 day old baby angel in that tank in 1 night. They are good parents for a while.

    Got cha ya. Time to pull the eggs. baby angels don't need the parents anyway. Good luck.

    now they haven't laid anymore eggs, but I have all the equipment to feed them and keep them separate now. Hopefully while I am off for the holiday they will lay eggs

    I hope the timing goes right. Lots of times a large water change with cooler water will get them to spawn if they are close.

    I went in to feed them at 2:30 this afternoon and she was laying. I have a 29 gallon, a cultured sponge filter, and 4 healthy mature tanks that can donate some biological filter. and a plastic shoe box, etc.and I can start the brine hatch as soon as grandchildren go home.
