I am running a new batch of S.hispidus.Things go well so far and I have a good number of Z2,soon to be Z3.They molt/change stages every 6 days.
My survival record with them was 40 days.

Stenopus hispidus has been said to be one of the toughest crustaceans to raise, even more difficult than Lysmata amboinensis. If you do wish to try Stenopus, do try S. scutellatus from the Carribean. There was a paper that got published, the larval duration was said to be at only around 2 months. I do wish to try scutellatus again, but now all I have are 3 females, can't really seem to find a male.
I love Artemac!

newly hatched Artemia and / or Rotifers. Stenopus are a bit smaller than Lysmata larvae and would benefit from rotifers for the first few zoea stages.
