the blender from co-op aquarium is the best BBS hatchery.. soooo easy.. i have tried the non-airline ones and they require more work..I did several types of redworms, black worms, daphnia, and vinegar eels for raising Apistogrammas years ago.
I have done some baby brine shrimp, but I found the set up a bit more labor intensive for the amount of brine shrimp I got from it. I saw a new little dish that looks fairly simple and have been thinking about getting one and trying again.
Can anyone give insight on the Brine Shrimp Hatchery from BRS?
Where do you get the initial worms?Doesn't take much. They do better cold it seems, and my house is pretty warm. People use wine fridges. I just bought a styrofoam cooler and rotate a couple ice packs. KISS
Probably gonna split this into two containers this weekend. Glob of yogurt with some nutritional yeast sprinkled over it to feed.
I use this brine shrimp hatchery. One of the most ingenious things I've seen. Eggs go in the outer ring. A lid goes on, shrimp hatch, swim through the rings to the middle, to the cup. Shells stay behind. Mine typically start hatching in 12 hours. All you need is salt water. No pump, no heat, no bubbles, or extra light. Most of my fish get BBS throughout quarantine, and I feed the DT from time to time.
Do you have a link for this product?
Thanks, this looks easy enough to give it a shot.No Aeration, Heat, or Tubing Required! Brine Shrimp Direct's Brine Shrimp Hatchery Dish is probably the easiest to use hatchery on the market today. The unique design keeps all the unhatched eggs and shells in the outer ring, while the hatched shrimp will seek out the light and swim to the open...www.bulkreefsupply.com
It's on Amazon too, but I can't get the link to post correctly.
I have attached a photo of one of the ziss hatcheries. I have 6 running all hatching baby brine. Each hatchery holds 2 litres of water but I fill only 1 litre. All of my brine gets a day night cycle of 12 on 12 off. Brine is harvested daily. Brine is fed to my tanks daily directly after hatch. Leftovers are fed nanno until used or sold.A picture, or two, would be much appreciated. Sounds very interesting.
