Hi guys have any of you used the De-shelled brine shrimp eggs as food for fry. From what i know about them you have to soak them before feeding them to the fish.
have any of you had experience with them?

i use to get my decapsulated eggs in seahorse and they were hydrated already but yes, as far as i'm aware ye should hydrate them 1st to stop them expanding in the fry's bellies instead.

I use a turkey baster to feed fry......Have you tried hatching the eggs your self?

No you can't hatch these ones seemingly as they are not viable,

No sorry,that's not what i meant (my wording of the English language is not alway's great)....What i meant was,could you not buy 'capsulated' brine shrimp and hatch them your self.....much more enjoyable and satisfying....and quite easy aswell if you have the few bits to do it.

O right yes I did try alright a while back but although most of them hatched i could not get the spent shells properly separate from the live shrimp. So I ditched the lot!

I find my turkey baster does the job for this aswell as it can bypass the 'spent' shells at the top of the water.
