At least your rams were making it to the free swimming stage, mine barely made it to the wriggler stage before being eaten, enough trys and they should get it right. Also look into getting a culture of microworms, much, much easier then trying to hatch brine shrimp, and can be ready at a moments notice.

I've found it very frustrating trying to hatch, separate etc. brine shrimp. How do you get microworms?

You have to get a starter culture from someone theirs all kinds on aquabid for like 3-5$ they are pretty easy to maintain just have to refresh their mixture every couple of weeks. Also if you want to stay with brine shrimp look at decapsulation first so you don't have to separate the shells a quick google on either should pull up all kinds of information, and will do a better job then me at explaining it.

Zof, thanks for the info on microworms. The crazy fish have spawned again last night. I saw a 20 gal long at a fleamarket, I'm going to go by today and buy it. I'm sure it will still be there. If I really want to raise this spawn, I'll should pull them out when they get to the free swimming stage. I'm not sure I'm ready to do that. so we'll see how this batch goes. Maybe it will just take more experience for the fish, and the 3rd time will be a charm

Crazy fish. I don't know why they don't just take some time off!

Yea nothing beats parent raised fry, I would give them another try or two before giving up and raising them myself.
