Emergency Help - Pep larvae in a 2L???

Postby mpedersen » Fri Jun 08, 2007 11:56 pm

Can I grow out some or a bunch of Peppermint Shrimp in a 2L bottle (or a couple 2L bottles)?

If so, how? What should I do immediately (i.e. I'm at least 16-24 hours from having brine nauplii available, but I have a lot of phyto and L-Strain rots...)

Woudl love to try this if possible!

Start with the rots and the phyto if you don't have bbs to start with. The larvae will take these as well. You certainly can raise them in bottles, I do that all the time. :roll:

OK, seriously, can it be done? ;)

I gave the larvae fresh Rotifers (culture also has some small (tiny) copepods in it) and a touch of fresh T-Iso to turn the water slightly brown. They're now at room temp (which is closer ot 72F) in rectangular "tubs" that hold less than 1L each.

Hi Matt, as long as they get ample food and clean water they will survive rather well. I do 100% water change daily.

Well, Luis and FuEL - the ones I put in the 2L Saturday night all died overnight. The other ones that I simply left in a shallow container all died overnight last night...

Obviously I'm missing something...

HMM.
