A review of the JBL brine shrimp hatchery and quick guide to feeding fish fry.

Feeding fish Fry

Those new to breeding fish often ask, ‘What do I do about feeding fish fry?’.

There are a few options for feeding fish fry, but a common feed is baby brine shrimp. Baby brine shrimp, or artemia as they are also known, are tiny and full of protein, that means they are easily swallowed by your baby fish and help them to grow.

You can buy brine shrimp in most aquarium shops, but why go buying them every time if you can create your own little breeding set up for brine shrimp as well as the fish you’re breeding?

I created the first Seriously Fishy book to solve the issue in 28 pages, that led to the Seriously Fishy UK fish forum and blog.
