what do you feed the new born fry. can they take the decap brine shrimp eggs
or do the fish have to grow for awhile before they can eat the decap brine
shrimp. I am looking for something that can be fed to the fish as soon as
they hatch and absorb the egg sack. first food. this seems to be the most
critical and difficult.

decapsulated brine shrimp eggs to feed to smaller fishes. All of my Fundulus
and Notropis seem to like the decaps. The company is based in Utah and sell
Great Salt Lake eggs.
