"Someone Tell Me How to Hatch Brine Shrimp"
« on: May 26, 2014, 09:27:08 AM »
Could someone tell me how to "Hatch Brine Shrimp"? :( I am not well adverse in hatching brine shrimp. I resist raising any live food for my fish, but it seems that everyone does it, and I now have some species that need it to breed.

I met one breeder who, "that's all he feeds" to his "Endlers Colonies". He has a pretty neat system for doing it but it seems to complicated, for me. Has anyone got a simple method and where do you get the "cyst eggs".

Check out brineshrimpdirect.com it will have the info you need. Plus I order the decap eggs from them, both the hatch and no hatch kind and I use that. It costs a bit more, but takes alot of the "work" out of messing with brine shrimp.

I feed de-capped brine shrimp eggs right out of the pack, the baby Sevvys go for it. And so do the Guppies. No hatching needed.
