Live brine shrimp

Anyone try feeding live brine shrimp ? Thinking of hatching my own to feed to my crabs....would they eat them well enough to make having a hatchery worth it?!

Not really. They require water to live, but feeding them in the salt water dish is likely to contaminate it or they just wont eat.

A good alternative, is to feed frozen cubes. Less work than making your own hatchery, but the same nutritional value. Like dont get me wrong, you could totally set up your own hatchery.... but the work needed, I dont really see it worth it for crabs tbh.

I've never had problems with 'Impulse Buying'... They're just animals/plants I forgot I had planned to purchase.
