Brine Shrimp Eggs

$ 49.00 until FREE shipping

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.

Excellent yield

Very good yield, and the price is great!

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. :)
