Hmm. Our brine shrimp didn't hatch at all.

What did we do wrong? Used different salt solutions, as per CPO Investigations unit, but nothing has happened. It's Day 4. Thoughts?



Hmm....we had lots after 2 days.


It depends on how much time you want to spend on it, but you could always keep those and start another batch too. You might have a bad batch of eggs, or there could be something else affecting them, or it could just be taking a bit longer.

I grow some brine shrimp for our fish to eat. I mix some salt with conditioned water (water appropriate for a fish tank) toss in some eggs and aerate. I don't have good results unless I aerate. I use an air pump with tubing. It takes about 24 hours from the time I add the eggs until I have swimmers. I typically feed them to my fish at that point and I feed the remaining brine shrimp a little brewer's yeast.
