Many fish love brine shrimp, and they'd love these tasty, nutritious shrimp even more if they were alive, just like in their regular habitat. Hatch your own fresh, live brine shrimp with this Hatch Mix. Easy to use, premeasured with the perfect mixture of both salt and eggs to ensure proper hatching. Contains 3 packets, each with a mixture of salt and brine shrimp eggs.
Pour 1 packet of San Francisco Bay Brand® Sally's Hatch Mix™ into container, add 1 liter of water, keep temperature between 80-82 degrees F, maintain a pH of 8.0 or above and eggs should hatch in 24-36 hours. After eggs hatch, turn off aeration device (if used). Wait 5-10 minutes for shells to float to the top and baby shrimp will swim to the bottom where you can siphon them into a fine mesh net. Rinse the baby brine shrimp in freshwater and feed your fish. For best results use San Francisco Bay Brand® Hatchery & Shrimpery™.
The mix is an easy and convenient way of hatching brine shrimp. I have used it with the simple "bottle-based" hatchery and it worked very well. The efficiency of hatching depends on temperature - it needs the 80-82oF recommended on the package otherwise the numbers of hatched shrimp goes down. The amount of shrimp produced is good for 1 feeding of approximately 60 fry 1/4 of an inch. Recommended!
