Brine Shrimp Eggs with 90% hatch rate with our premium GSL eggs. Easy to hatch in a hatchery. When feeding fry attempt to minimize the amount of shells that get into the tank as the shells are not easily digestible.
Order just the BBS eggs or our eggs/salt blend. The egg/salt blend is measured at 1/2 tablespoon per pint of water to attain the correct salinity levels; and is the very product used in our own fish room.
Unsalted brine shrimp eggs are packaged by the gram and salted brine shrimp eggs are packaged by the pound.
*Hatch rate increases with pH. Must be above 7.0 to hatch, at 8.0 or higher will produce the best hatch rate
*Salinity should be 1.018 – 1.023 specific gravity. Use non-iodized or kosher salt as iodine will kill the eggs. 1.5 – 2 level Tablespoons of salt per liter.
*Light is recommended during the incubation period
*Ideal hatching temperature is 80-82F / 26-28C. Do not exceed 86F / 30C.
*Strong aeration is recommended for the best hatch rate
*Density of eggs should not exceed 2 grams per liter of salted water (1 teaspoon per liter).
*Incubation period: 18 – 30 hours
Use with our Brine Shrimp Hatchery, in a hatching cone or other V shaped container for the best results
