Re: BBS... to sieve or not to sieve?
After siphoning off the brine solution with the baby brine in it I pour the
solution thru a brine shrimp net which you can purchase at almost any
aquarium store. Then I simply reverse the net into a container of clean tank
water and use a eye dropper to feed the fry. You can recycle the strained
solution or whatever.
