Hatch your very own brine shrimp with this easy to use kit. In no time, you'll have your very own highly nutritious food source for all types of fish.
1. Empty one pack of Hatch Mix into Shrimpery. 2. Using room temperature tap water fill Shrimpery to marker level and collector bottle to brim. Stir contents of Shrimpery until salt is no longer visible at bottom. 3. Cover collector bottle and Shrimpery™. Water level should be higher than circular ledge in Shrimpery cover. (add water if necessary) 4. Place the collector bottle (lid side down) into Shrimpery cover. Note: tap top of collector bottle to release air bubble(s) that may be blocking hole in collector lid. 5. within 18 to 40 hours (depending upon temperature) brine shrimp, naturally attracted to light will be seen swimming up into the collector bottle*. 6. Feed your baby fish from the freshwater in the collection bottle. You may collect additional brine shrimp for as long as 24 hours. (to collect more shrimp as often as every 2 hours simply refill collector bottle with fresh tap water) *Only the brine shrimp swim up through the hole and are washed free of salt. The saltwater being heavier than fresh water in the collection bottle stays behind.
This was a big disappointment in the actual quantities of brine newly-hatched brine shrimp it made. There were only ever a few brine shrimp that hatched using this method. I transferred contents to the old "jar and air-stone" method and the eggs hatched abundantly.
Took me three times to discover I was reading the directions wrong. At my age, directions ocassionally are difficult for me to decypher. I have ordered another pack of eggs and will try again. I am sure my smaller fish will gobble em up when I can get them to hatch.
