Mudassir,
 
 We  have  also  caught  the  fairy  shrimps  (yes,  I  am  trying  to  sound  smart,  even  when  it  is  yet  under  a  minute  I  found  out  what  these  creaturea  are!   Chuckle  )  in  Pune  too.  These  were  found  in  a  puddle  after  heavy  non  seasonal  rains.  didn't  try  to  culture  the  guys,  but  will  do  it  now,  with  some  research  on  them.  My  bettas  love  them!                

   Chuckle  
 these  appear  as  excellent  substitues  to  live  tubifex,
 hopin  to  culture  em  and  feed  em  to  the  batches  of  betta  fry  that  are  soon  to  come  and  also  to  condition  the  brood  stock,
 these  guys  are  quite  easy  to  culture  from  what  i  have  experienced  the  past  3  days,
 amazing  creatures  to  watch

 I  found  them  in  a  puddle  on  the  hill  near  my  place,  and  there  were  loads  of  it  then.  they  were  in  two  puddles  close  by,  and  with  clear  water.  I  guess  the  water  there  would  be  slightly  hard,  as  in  a  nearby  quarry,  the  stones  had  white  deposition  hard  (actually  impossible)  to  remove.

 Murky  water  or  clear  water.  You  are  unlikely  to  find  them  if  there  are  any  fish  around.  Smile

 Humaid,
 
 checked  the  fairy  shrimps  this  morning,  due  to  the  lack  of  rains,  the  small  puddles  have  dried  up.  will  check  a  week  after  it  rains  fairly.

 at  the  location  I  found  them,  there  was  no  murky  water  anywhere,  so  will  keep  looking.

 this  might  be  a  vague  reply,  but  in  case  of  dormant  plant  seeds,  to  break  the  dormancy  drying  is  a  way.  so  similarly  the  drying  the  eggs  can  be  a  way,  but  the  temperature  will  be  the  key.  I  also  think  the  way  we  wet  them  would  also  be  important  as  the  temperature  and  wet  first  for  1  2  days  and  then  submerged  to  mimic  the  on  set  of  monsoon.
 
 a  week  of  dry  period  with  the  substrate  and  then  wet  and  submerged  looks  fine  IMO.
 
 let's  experiment  and  share.  I  will  collect  some  here  and  start  the  same  asap.

 cool,
 from  what  i  read  these  guys  go  a  dry-cold  -wet  cycle  when  they  are  cysts,  
 so  will  harvest  the  eggs,  let  em  out  in  room  temperature  till  they  dry  will  put  em  up  in  a  fridge  and  then  re-wet  them,
 hoping  this  works,
