It is easy to do and I think I'm gonna hatch some for my finicky feeders. Did you all see that mandarin/butterfly fish feeder? That looks deluxe and almost free to build.

When I had my freshwater hatchery we kept 5 gallon water jugs going all the time with brine shrimp. Even raising them and gut loading them is simple with algae paste. We use to have green water being made all the time.

I tried once to hatch brine but was not succesful. :-( maybe I should give it another go. I tried the garlic and no luck with the anthias. I may be going back to the fish shop I got him at tomorrow, might consider trying to catch him and getting him back there. But doubt I can get him out as he is a devil with rock hiding thing he does.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Tomorrow is fish or coral day! Can't wait! I know which coral I am getting but the fish will be a surprise, I kinda know which one I want he has had it in qt for a couple weeks so might get him.

I will update later, can't wait to try to feed the anthias either. I'm having a good feeling....hope I'm not jinxing things. lol
