(please tell me if I should post this else where)

growing brine shrimp is hard and feeding them is harder but after thinking if I were to add some alge ,I'v been growing it, just a little would this feed them? they eat micro alge so would the little bit of green slime alge give off micro alge?
I grow alge in a jam jar for feeding guppy fry note this works because guppies are plant eaters well mine are, not ripping the plants apart Twisted Evil but eating alge Razz
would my idea for feeding brine shrimp work? Razz

Brine shrimp eat by filtering water, so whatever you feed them must be dissolved in the water. If the algae you have taints the water green then it might work, otherwise I doubt the shrimp will get much to eat.
