Use these eggs along with saltwater to make live baby brine shrimp. These are used to refill the brine shrimp hatchery.

Into a container add 1 quart (1 liter) of water, add 1 teaspoon of brine shrimp eggs, plug in air pump to start aeration, after 1 hour of rehydration add 2 tablespoons of aquarium (rock) salt and keep aeration on. Keep temperatures between 80-82 degrees F (26-28 degrees C), maintain a pH of 8.0 or above and eggs should hatch in 24-36 hours. After eggs hatch turn off aeration, direct a light source at the bottom, wait 5-10 minutes for shells to float to top and baby shrimp to swim to bottom. Remove airline at pump end. Keeping above water surface, slowly lower airline and siphon water into fine net. Rinse shrimp under fresh water and feed to fish.

Works for me!

I got the baby brine shrimp (BBS) hatchery that is also sold in Aquarium Co-Op and had no problems hatching them. For a 1 liter bottle, I use 1 Tbsp of aquarium salt, a pinch of baking soda, and 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of BBS eggs. Use an air pump to keep the water bubbling and a desk lamp to keep the temperature at 80-82 degF. After 24 hours, I collect the hatched BBS and scrub out the hatchery with hot water. To keep the eggs lasting longer, I refrigerate the container but I've heard you can also freeze them.

Have not used them yet.

I'm sure they're fine but are a little complicated for me to get started right now. I don't have a good set up for them.

Once you leave it alone

Once you stop messing with it and let it sit for 24 hours the eggs will hatch. I made a hatchery for these out of a water bottle and an air pump and it worked fine. It has a high hatch rate for all my guppy fry. :)

Live Arrival Guarantee
We guarantee our live products will arrive alive. We ask that you do your part and minimize the amount of time our packages sit out in the elements. It can also be a good idea to avoid ordering live items during extreme temperatures. This would be when night time temps are below 35 and over 80 degrees during the day. Now these temps are not for sure death, it's just what makes it easiest for all of us during shipping.

When temperatures are cold we will use heat packs and extreme cold styrofoam liners. Shipping live goods is difficult as our warehouse could be 70 degrees and your home could be snowing, and all the stops in between. We do our best and will make it right for you and may request to try again at a different time.  During heat waves, it's best to avoid ordering live goods as ice packs etc don't do enough to mitigate it. 

30 Day Return Policy
Our goal is to provide a fair way to satisfy our customers and not lose money while doing it. We make every effort to fully disclose how our products work and what is to be expected. A damaged product during shipping is an automatic replacement from us. When it comes to a difference of opinion such as: "My fish doesn’t like this food." That we don’t refund for. However, if you decide the light you bought is a bit too green for your liking, provided it is in the original box, within 30 days and purchased from us, we will refund it at your cost of shipping.

If you would like to return a product, start the process by emailing us at shipping@aquariumcoop.com This allows us to see if there is something we can do before returning the product such as a feature you didn’t know about or send you a return label. We don’t require an RMA number, but do ask you to contact us to initiate the return. Please do not call the retail store as they operate separately from the warehouse and will not be able to issue you a return label etc.
