Below you will find the Web's most complete and simple-to-follow brine shrimp hatching instructions!
First of all, you need to start with healthy, properly stored eggs. All brine shrimp eggs need to be stored as follows:
We recommend that upon receiving your eggs, dividing them into an amount that will be consumed within three to four weeks and storing this amount in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator; the remainder should be stored, also in a tightly sealed container, in the freezer. Keep in mind that freezing can lower metabolic activity and delay hatch-out. We suggest removing egg from the freezer one day in advance of using it.
The above storage guidelines apply to all brine shrimp eggs, whether in opened or unopened tins.
Follow these guidelines for the best results:
Brine shrimp egg is sometimes very buoyant. In order to maximize the hatching percentage, it is sometimes helpful to swirl the water inside the hatching container with your finger once or twice at intervals in the first 4 to 6 hours of incubation in order to knock down eggs that have been stranded on the side of the container above the water-line. After about 6 hours, the eggs are usually well-hydrated and will stay in the water column.
The following steps will achieve optimum brine shrimp hatch rates.
