HELP: Raising bbs to adults


Recommended Posts

Bbs won't live past day three. I have a 10 gal tank filled to about 6 gal.  I use conditioned tap water with marine grade salt (1.022-1.026). Temp is 79.  The tank has a small sponge filter and second air line, both gently bubbling.  I use a Ziss hatchery and transfer a small amount of bbs to the grow out tank.  I feed the bbs 2 days after hatching.  I have tried several methods of feeding spirulina powder.  I've dusted the surface and premixed it with conditioned water and dripped it in.  I have tried half a dozen times, raising and lowering the salinity, and increasing and decreasing the amount food. All with the same results. Any ideas?
