They do not need food for the first 24 hours of there life but after that you can feed them wheat flower and egg yolk.

I think they will get sucked up by the filter like fish.fishygirl2900 wrote:

Brine shrimp are very active and usually look like they're moving up and down. Dead ones fall to the bottom.

If you're interested in raising brine shrimp to maturity, food and equipment are available at some aquarium shops. If you can't find them locally, try <email> .

For feeding angelfish fry, I use a small, in-tank hatchery. Newly hatched and adult brine shrimp are also available frozen. They are a good supplement to dry, staple foods.

you can feed the brine shrimp yeast a cool thing to do is take a small amout of food coloring put the yeast in and add water if you feed this to them they may seem to change color the (the color of the food coloring)is that not so cool

If they do that, they are likely unhatched eggs. Some of the online aquarium supply houses sell equipment, supplies and food specifically for hatching and growing brine shrimp as food for aquarium fish. You may get a better start in brine shrimp husbandry if you start with a professionally designed hatchery.

Not really. In nature they eat single cell free floating algae.You can feed them bread yeast dissolved in water. I wouldn't add food colour, they don't need it and the colours are not totally harmless either. Why add a chemical that's not necessary ?

If the water clears, they are eating. Only add enough to slightly cloud the water.

Oops.. sorry, missed how old this was. Never mind.
