Hobby Brine shrimp hatchery!

  • So, I went on to an international forum and they said they used this thing to hatch brine shrimp. Needs no power, no heater and no air pumps or movement at all.

    This is what I got...

    The instructions say to add 3 slightly heaped teaspoons of salt (aquarium not table salt) to 500ml of fresh water. Pour the water into the tray. Then place 1/4 teaspoon of the brine shrimp eggs into the tray spread evenly over the waters surface.... Check.

    Put the lid on... You can also see the size of the whole thing. That round blue thing is a standard size of plumbers tape...

    So, after about 24 hours I took the lid off to check...

    You can see in the above pic, the small orange patch in the white circular thing in the center of the dish... That is live, freshly hatched brine shrimp! No power, no air and no heat!! There are thousands of them!

    This thing is brilliant! I am going to be trying to find out how to get these into the country. I haven't seen them anywhere so far. Feeding brine shrimp is now the easiest thing on earth!! Brilliant!
