pcc Posted April 3 Share Posted April 3 Six days ago I traveled to a LFS in Portland that said they had Amano shrimp in stock. I wanted to try the shrimp out as tank cleaners. I picked up six shrimp and a very young (small) Hillstream Loach. Unfortunately the loach did not even survive the 45 minute drive home. The shrimp were ok, so I put them in my quarantine tank. That is when I noticed that I also received about 20 to 30 very tiny fry fish along with the shrimp! So I have been trying to feed them, they are too small for live brine shrimp. I am also trying egg yolk forced through a fine cloth which I think they are eating. I also purchased some Hikari First Bites and Aquarium Co-op baby fry food. I think they are eating some of the Hikari which is smaller than AQ baby fry food. I am going to try and change some water in the tank tomorrow (the yolk is a little messy)and hopefully not suck out the fry! Any thoughts on what I should be feeding them? They have survived six days now so maybe they are eating. The shrimp are still doing well too! 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
