So when I got my new 55gal it had salt and brine shrimp eggs and a 1gal minI bowl. can I use it to hatch the shrimp? I'm guess I might try it.

You probably could do that. Just google raising brine shrimp if you're not planning on feeding the BBS to the fish.

I find that a ratio of 1/8 tsp to 1 tbsp of aquarium salt makes a very good yield. I keep a bubble stone in to keep them moving around and only take it out to collect the bbs. I use all treated water.

I use one of those black boxes though and a collection vial to get the bbs to swim up towards light.

The shrimp will be a reddish color if hatched right?
