Are 12 hours old Baby Brine Shrimps still nutritious?
 
Hi all,

Are 12 hour Brine Shrimp still nutritious to feed to angelfish fry?

Also after the 24 hour they hatch and get a batch for feeding the fry. What should I do with the remainder? Leave them in the hatching jar with air? Take all the brine shrimp out and put it in jar with salt water and no air bubbles? If I put them in a jar with no air bubbles should I refrigerate? I will use them after 4 hours and another batch after almost 6-7 hours. Then I think they will loose the nutritious value for the angelfish fry.

Can I feed the adults with the baby Brine Shrimps that are 12 hours old (almost ate all their egg sack)

You can, but recognize that they won't be as nutritious.

Better than nothing, since some fry won't eat non-live food though.

thanks. Also can I re use the saltwater or better to do a new one each day?
