    Banggai Babies at 2 weeks

    It's now almost 2 weeks since the hatch. I've got 6 left and they're all fattening up nicely. I can only assume that I lost the other 6 during early troubles I had with hatching baby brine shrimp. Problem is obviously solved tho' as the pix will attest.

    Why is it called "cargo" when it goes by ship, and "shipment" when it goes by car?

    The babies are in my 10 gallon Quarantine/Propagation tank.

    There are no other fish - just live rock frags, 2" sand bed, mushrooms, moon polyps, lots of copepods, crabs (5?), snails (2?) and now, the shrimp hatchery.

    The only filtration is an Aquaclear mini with charcoal and filter sponge. I change the sponge weekly, replacing it with one I have soaking in the sump for my main tank. I plan to change the charcoal monthly.

    I have considered purchasing a 20 or 30 gallon when they get larger, butr that will have to wait until after Christmas.

    Hope that helps...
