    :lol: Yes, the adults are unless you gut feed the shrimp before you feed your tank. Newly hatched brine shrimp, however, are very nutritious as they still have an egg sac.

    Yup! There is a major nutritional difference between young and fully developed brine shrimp: the protein/lipid (fat) ratio. The young ones contain definitely more lipids (highly caloric diet with lots of vitamins A,D,E,K). The adult forms are protein rich.

    This feeding device is nice, however, you still need to provide it with dried eggs, and this should be done every 24h!
