I only got one small tube of it from amazon for like $3, I can't find any pet stores that actually sell live brine shrimp, and I also wanna culture daphnia for some reason

Ohh and I bought it cuz I got the pair of guppies and I wanted to breed them

They have most of their nutrients while they are freshly hatched, but as they grow they are still nutritious just not as much as when they are hatched
They make great fry food

But it can have long term effects on them. Temperatures around 70 or 80 are ideal.

They empregnate themselves approx. 1 hour after they give birth. It's just natural, no worries

It should work, just be sure to rinse it very very well to get rid of all the salt. If you can, pick up a battery operated airstone to give her some aeration during the trip.

She should be fine then. Just remember to acclimate her and the other fish when you get the tank back up!

Since she's in such an early stage, I doubt shed abort, so don't worry about it ^^

This early on, it won't be as likely as it would be if she was further along.

Keep a sharp eye out for any agitated or unhappy behavior, and you should feed her right after you move her!
