Hi
I just wondered if clams will eat Baby brine shrimp. I feed this all the time and just got a new crocea clam.

Thanks
Jeff

Clams usually consume phytoplankton in the ~10 micron range. Rotifers are too big ~50+ microns. Baby brine are much larger than that.

No, they will not. If they do ingest them, they will (hopefully) expell them shortly after. ADS hit it on the nose.
