    I almost had a heart attack then I read the labels:

    Yours contains 47 grams of Salts and 3 grams of Brine Shrimp Eggs,Mine contains 100% Brine Shrimp Eggs.That's 50 g Eggs.

    So yours is R70 for 3 grams
    Mine is R214 for 50 grams.

    If you buy 16 packets of yours it's 48g of eggs and that would cost you R1166.66.

    Not really hey if you look closely, the one you have is 100% bs eggs, full 50g and mine is only 3g eggs and 47g salt. So its way cheaper to buy the one you got but easier to hatch the one I got.;)

    I use a syringe to suck them out.After hatching you remove the air supply and let it stand you will see the empty egg shells go to the top and the brine shrimp will be in the middle and the unhatched eggs will be at the bottom.

    I then use a big syringe and air tube to suck them out and feed them.Kept some aside will see if I can raise them.....
