Woke up to about 50 shut off pumps and skimmers and moved light to bottom. Tank is a 30 gal with two proud parents and fry in it also a chocolate chip starfish ( very well behaved ) and two hermit crabs . Didn't plan this but am truly excited any advice on what to do now would be great! Thx

Unless you have & can decapsulate brine shrimp & hatch it they will not survive. They will probably have more in aprox 3 weeks so you have time to get ready for the next batch.

Lets see some pics! That is so cool. What is the purpose of the brine being decapsolated?

It has a lot more nutrition & does not have to use it up getting out of it's shell. Also hydroids are in brine shrimp eggs & decaping it is a way to remove them. Just better in many ways.
