Hi, I'm starting brine shrimp hatcheries for my betta fry but am not sure whether one hatchery will be sufficient.
The fry have to be fed about 3 times a day, and brine shrimp lasts in the hatchery for about 48 hours before losing most of it's nutritional value. The problem is that brine shrimp take about a day to hatch, so every other day, it seems, I will have to begin a new hatchery.
my question is can I add more eggs to the hatchery while there are still brine in there? or will I have to wait and use up all the brine in the hatchery before adding more eggs (and them having to set up a second hatchery so that I can feed my fry while the first hatchery is being prepared)?
P.S. for those that have read to my other post on selling betta fry, dont worry, the fry have a loving home with me in my fishroom (although if anyone still has any suggestions on selling fry please feel free to reply to that thread).
I was pannicking when I was posting that thread so please dont think me an irresponsible person!
P.P.S I already have a microworm culture going, but I would also really appreciate suggestions on when to start feeding the bettas BBS (baby brine shrimp).
