That's what I've been doing...I must have read it somewhere. Thanks!

Are my fry in danger of getting bloat, from eating a base diet of brine shrimp, just like mature fish are from high protein foods? I'm not sure how much protein the baby brine shrimp have, I froze them immediately, upon hatching, and they still have their yolk sacks.

I've heard of fry getting bloated from eating bbs as a main staple, just mix it up with some crushed flake or pellets and it should be fine.
