Re: Raising Brine Shrimp
First, Rudolph, please reset your e-mail editor to "plain text - US ASCII"
as the fancy MIME stuff can't be read at all by many folks. On my monitor,
the pale blue on white is quite hard to read. Never send it to lists. Send
only plain text.
For complete information on growing out Artemia, check out the technical
articles at www.brineshrimpdirect.com. Unless you learn how to gut load
them, the few you can grow will have essentially no value as food, though.
They are quite unlike Daphnia, as they have no outer shell to speak of.
[That's why, until cryofreezing was invented, they disintegrated upon
feeding when frozen.]
For more entertaining information, do a web search for sea monkeys. :-)

"DEMOCRACY" is two wolves and a lamb voting on lunch.
"LIBERTY" is a well-armed lamb denying enforcement of the vote.
