    I would suggest- raising some pepps first maybe...
    The different life stages are called ZOE or Life in Latin

    The most accepted technique in raising these shrimp is by utilizing a "kriesel" "or pseudokriesel" type nursery...
    These are tanks designed to keep the Zoe suspended in the water column until they "drop" or have completed their Zoe stages. I would suggest you do alot of reading before trying it.
