  1. these crawly things in my tanks. should I be concerned?
  2. I'm not shipping quite yet. I'm just bagging for a local auction. standard plastic bags, I don't have oxygen just air. I imagine the longest the fish would be in bags is around 12-14 hours.
  3. Has anyone used little cubes of Acurel amonia reducing pads for bagged fish and shrimp when shipping or for auctions? I think this is the correct product but I want to make sure.
  4. Just a large sponge filter. water temps between 58-79 throughout the summer.
  5. I have a trio of Trout Goodeid that lived outside all summer in a 300 gallon pond with tons of plants, cherry shrimp, and snails. I pulled them today and drained the pond no baby/juvenile goodeids. I suspect they are all females. I took pictures of each. please help me sex them.
  6. Has anyone delt with waternet algae before? Several of my summer totes have a large amount of it. I've found live and dead fry/juviles stuck in it this summer. I'll attach pics. This Algae makes a perfect little net in the water. I did manually remove some today freeing little fish as I pulled it out. According some research from Tennessee it forms in High alkaline ponds. I did add a bit of crushed coral to the totes this year I'm not sure if that would make much difference.
  7. Interesting. These are listed as non-hatching I could always experiment with hatching them.
  8. I have Decapsulated brine shrimp eggs from another site(Sorry Cory). The directions say to rehydrate them and then feed them to marine or freshwater fish. I only have fresh water tanks. Is there any need to rehydrate them? I imagine they will rehydrate in the tank just fine. Maybe fish eat them dry and then the food hydrates would that be bad? Thanks!
  9. Thank you all for the assistance. I ultimately switched back to Coop brine shrimp eggs and I'm back to hatching a batch every other day. (I don't heat the hatcher so it hangs around 70f)
  10. Maybe it's this one? https://www.amazon.com/MEIMEI-Collect-Artemia-Copepod-Hatchery/dp/B092TPH9QL/ref=sxin_16_pa_sp_search_thematic_sspa?content-id=amzn1.sym.ea7393e3-de5f-4d19-84a5-8c5fb5c68d5f%3Aamzn1.sym.ea7393e3-de5f-4d19-84a5-8c5fb5c68d5f&crid=2O65YGN4KJFL3&cv_ct_cx=brine+shrimp+sieve&keywords=brine+shrimp+sieve&pd_rd_i=B092TPH9QL&pd_rd_r=3b9ba6fa-0152-45f5-af64-17a686d95ab7&pd_rd_w=eL1jl&pd_rd_wg=T8jjt&pf_rd_p=ea7393e3-de5f-4d19-84a5-8c5fb5c68d5f&pf_rd_r=9AW1MPZZ4X7DECD23C11&qid=1682971627&sbo=RZvfv%2F%2FHxDF%2BO5021pAnSA%3D%3D&sprefix=brine+shrimp+seive%2Caps%2C215&sr=1-3-2b34d040-5c83-4b7f-ba01-15975dfb8828-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEzRVVDUVZONzlXQzM2JmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNTQ0MDc2SlFYM1lCMFpYNVYmZW5jcnlwdGVkQWRJZD1BMDI2OTc5OTM1RzVDOEtaNTJBTUEmd2lkZ2V0TmFtZT1zcF9zZWFyY2hfdGhlbWF0aWMmYWN0aW9uPWNsaWNrUmVkaXJlY3QmZG9Ob3RMb2dDbGljaz10cnVl Good to know I stuck a piece of airline tubing into the bottom spout but a larger diameter tube would be nice.
  11. Does each sieve/net in that set have different size holes? Your harvest process is almost identical to mine but the water/shrimp mixture isn't flowing through my sieve.
  12. Hi all, I'm using the coop brine shrimp eggs and the standard square sieve from BSD. The water takes forever to drain through the sieve it seems the mesh holes are too small/fine. I believe the mesh is 120micron. Does anyone use a different sieve that has slightly bigger holes? Maybe Coop is looking to make one? Thanks
  13. About a year ago I won a plant at the local auction. if I recall I got it for a couple dollars. the plant was a tissue culture and was a donation from a Florida based nursey. the plant has done awesome providing hiding spots for shrimp and the snails don't eat it. today I pulled it out and transplanted about a third of the plant to a different tank. can anyone help identify from the attached pictures? Thank you
