    So I decided I am going to breed some brine shrimp. I went to purchase some eggs from a sponsor and it was R177 for a pack of eggs.

    I know the live ones are about R15 a bag.

    Anyone else thinks that price is exorbitant?

    Can someone please point me in the right direction as to where I can get the eggs at a reasonable price.

    Prefer the jhb north area.

    I use to buy from the plaza. From that petstore many moons ago. They use to sell these packets that looked like the seedling packets your mom use to buy for her garden.

    I've found someone in DBN that does them and is willing to ship. I will try and get some and see how it goes.
