i want to get some live brine shrimp for my green mandarin who seems to have stopped eating prepared foods. looks like it takes about 10 days to start hatching my own so i was hoping someone in the area has some i could have or buy to get me going and see if it works?

I don't have any for you, but brine shrimp will hatch in around 24 hours, or a bit longer if you don't heat them.

They have the most nutrition if you feed them to your fish in the first 8 hours.

Yea they are really easy to hatch, About 24 hrs. Also most fish stores carry ocean nutrition brand baby brine shrimp. They aren't alive but are bottled whole so they look alive and still have all of the little tentacles and stuff on them that move in the water and look real. There are tons of good reviews on that stuff
