OK - this is where i need help - i have around 3 dozen collected and in a jar floating in the tank, have put a small amount of phyto in there and thinking some newly hatched brine shrimp
any thoughts on where i can go from here?

I would try rotifers as its a bit smaller than brine shrimp, also i would imagine they would need plenty of air pumped into tank so giving them some movement. Not having reared any of these someone must have somewhere nd must know what they eat. chris :)

didnt survive - not really surprising as floating in a jar in the tank, have to watch for this in the future and be a bit better prepared

Sorry about that m8 but keep trying as its how you win as you no doubt know i am sure someone will have bred them at sometime. The thing is these things always turn up when your not expecting them. chris :)
