Procedures for storing, hatching, culturing, and harvesting brine shrimp egg cysts eeding brine shrimp to your livestock has been compared to feeding potato chips to your guests for dinner. It isn't nutritious, and provides hardly any proteins at all. If you raise brine shrimp from eggs, however, and harvest them while their yolk sac is still attached, you are providing something worthwhile. To improve their nutritional value, add some live phytoplankton to the hatchery about six hours before harvesting them. The shrimp will eat the phytoplankton, a process called "gut-loading." Feeding gut-loaded baby brine shrimp to your tank is an excellent practice if there are smaller fish or possibly young fry that need live foods. Fish at least two weeks old, and possibly seahorses, would certainly be able to eat this live food.

Brine shrimp are no doubt the most widely used live foods for sea horses. They are convenient, always available, easy to hatch and raise, and adults can be bought by the pint or quart at many fish stores (Giwojna, Oct. 1996). Live adult brine shrimp are a good supplement to the diet of almost all small- to medium-sized tropical or coldwater fish and are available in many of the larger aquarium shops throughout the country. Unfortunately, live adult brine shrimp are also an expensive source of food because of the high transportation costs. It is often cheaper to buy a supply of eggs and hatch and raise the resulting nauplii to the desired adult size. The primary difficulty with this is the vast amount of space that is necessary to raise sufficient shrimp to feed a large collection of fish.
