I have the address of a park that has some clam shrimp (limnadiidae) living in a number of large rock pools, and I'm going to go get a few samples of the mud so I can try to hatch the clam shrimp. Has anyone ever kept them? From what I'm reading, they're similar in care to fairy shrimp; small aquarium is fine, make sure there's plenty of mulm and detritus for the babies to feed on, give them spirulina algae and yeast dissolved in water that they can filter-feed on. I'm thinking a gallon tank or so should be adequate.
In particular, are they ghost-shrimp-proof? I'd like to put them in a 5g ghost shrimp tank that's already established, but if the ghost shrimp would eat them, I'll put them elsewhere. Not sure if their shell protects them enough from shrimp. I know triops can't eat them.
