might seem like a stupid question but again im new to this...i've seen other people buy brine shrimp and its quite a bit of food, are you suppose to dump all the shrimp in the water and let them live in the tank or am i suppose to have a different tank for the shrimp?
What you are talking about are the brine shrimp eggs used for hatching live brine . Mike is correct, get the frozen brine shrimp.

i know i should set up the qt asap but unfortunately will have to wait about another 2 weeks to buy the set up...i was thinking if a simple little cube that could be hung off my tank would be ok in the meantime as I don't want it to infect all of my stock...

the cube im referring to is something similar to what they have at the lfs when you buy fish

I also feed my clowns a variety of food. I mix it up between freeze dried brine shrimp, frozen brine shrimp, a frozen marine mix and finally marine pellets.
