I have this little hatchery and it works surprisingly well for hatching bb in a small amount for a tank or two.i was a bit skeptical but it works as advertised.Light only enters right above the strainer so all the shrimps just swarm to that area and you just lift them right out.No need to worry about separating shells or anything.Flyfisha said:A link to the new style of hatchery that works without air and has a strainer come with the hatchery.
It’s necessary to remove the brine shrimp from the salt water. And to somehow leave the egg shells behind. Those are the necessary tasks.
The brine can be feed after 24 ish hours and stay alive for 3 or 4 days without food. After 4 days they are still alive but have eaten their egg sacks and are not a high protein meal anymore.
Feeding once or twice a week is great.
I really recommend life food cultures and brine shrimp is a good one to start with.
