    thanks for all the help guys!

    Bobby - Used your formula, had great results in about 36 hours. The only thing I had different was the temp was about 72. So im going to add a heater and should have better results.

    Thanks Again

    Hi Maylandi,

    The warmer temp will just make them hatch faster -- say 24 hours. How will you use a heater? You might try a 100 watt incandescent light bulb in a fixture about 6-10 inches from the hatching bottle (remember mine are thick milk jar glass and not meltable plastic!!!!!) to raise the temp. or place the bottles themselves in a half filled 10 gallon tank with a small wattage submergible heater in the tank itself and heat the tank water so that it then warms the hatching bottles' water. Glad it's working. Shrimp is easy once you have a teacher. I had a great teacher.

    Hmm im using a big pickel jar, so I just suction cupped a submersible heater inside and let it go - its at 80 degrees no problems [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] I was afraid it would melt the jar, but its been working all afternoon with no problems

    Thanks!

    Hi M,

    That looks good. As long as the heater works in the jar you are good to go.

    That reminds me, I should hatch some to feed to my new born Labidochromis fry. What do you think?

    I always just powder up some Aquadine and feed that to them. But maybe I'll try some BB shrimp.

    Leslie: That would work very well. Btw, what is Aquadine? Never heard if it. I know Hikari offers Hikari first bites which is a very fine powder(may even be too fine for them) which is supposedly good for fry though I haven't tried feeding it to fry. I bet surface feeders like lampeyes would eat it up though.
