A brine shrimp dinner?

I have clown loaches, mollies, and platies.
Will they (all or some) eat brine shrimp?

I would be surprised if the loaches don't. But the others...?

They will all eat brine shrimp. Its hard to find a fish that won't.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

Super. They all love frozen blood worms. But I would assume that live food has a different smell than frozen. :)

brine has little to no nutritional value. i personally like feeding it, but offering a vierity is best.

They get a small variety. I have regular fish flakes, sinking spirulina pellets, and blood worms, too. I've had my fish for only a few months. I'm slowly building up their "salad bar."

They sure do like the brine shrimp. The guy at the fish store even dropped a few in their molly tank to make sure before I got some. Since the loaches are so shy... and on the bottom mostly... the mollies and platies usually end up getting all of the shrimp before the loaches do.


And unless the snails have burrowed somewhere, the clowns are even better at eating snails than I thought. There were at least two in there that I figured would be too big for them to eat. But I haven't seen ANY snails. ha.
