    Bought a cheap bag of brine shrimp at my pet store just had a few questions about it. How can i breed them in the most simply way possible and is it worth it or just easier buying a bag everyone couple weeks for about $5?

    It's worth the time & effort breeding them if you have a large number of fish to feed or you're feeding the newly hatched ones to fry.
    I buy mine as I have nowhere seperate to set up a hatchery.
    There's some good info here

    I raised them for awhile until my water got to cold and everything died. Lol but it was really simple and I loved being able to give my fish live ones whenever I could. Under my 55 gallon I had a 5 gallon bucket filled about halfway with salty water. ( 1 tablespoon of non iodized salt per liter of tap water) it had an airstone in it and a clip on lamp that was on 24/7. You have to feed them daily, and I got my food online.
