I have been giving them Sally's frozen Baby brine, live baby brine, and
Aquarian Fry Food (put out by Mardel). They really like the fry food, and it
seems to have alot of good stuff and no ethoxyquin.

To be honest I havent really gotten that far. The LFS may take some, the
problem is around here, there are very few LFS and only one carries more
difficult to get fish and they often only keep in a pair at a time. This may
be because of supply though, and if that is the case, I will be in luck. I
am considering just loading them up in a different tank and taking them to my
business and setting up a tank there and sell them from the tank and putting
out flier at LFS or something like that. I just dont want to count my
chickens before they hatch so to speak, so have been reticent about making
any massive plans. I hadnt thought about selling with the shells, but thats
a good idea, I can pick up a six pack of the kind momma spawned in for $1.99
at Michaels Crafts.

Oh, no, did you lose the momma? I will definately be checking shells closely
before they leave the water. I already almost sucked up one of the males
while vacuuming, scared me to death when I realized he was in the shell I had
