There are many great threads about brine shrimp hatching on this site. I recommend you do a search on the subject.

Inverted 2 liter drink bottles are my preferred method. The poor mans hatching cones. Its easier to aerate, clean, setup new batches and collect the shrimp while leaving the hatched capsules behind. I can post some pics of my setup if youre interested. I'd recommend doing some homework though. The more info you have the better chances of success.

Cheers

I prefer the 2 liter soda bottle hatchery. The real trick is being certain to have good quality eggs that have been kept properly. Often cysts you get at a pet store are not in good shape.

Thumbs up Re: What is the easiest/cheapest method to a successful brine shrimp hatchery?

I just mixed 11/2 tbs of aquarium salt to a half gallon water. Took about 8 cups of my salt water pinch of baking soda less than 1/4 tsp of bbs . Put in a 8x6 plastic container sturd it up. Put by window no light bulb or air pump. There hatching as i write it is slow. It has been 24 hours about 25% of the eggs hatched so far. It has been snowing here so not much sun. Plus its about 65 f 18 c by the window . Cant get to much cheaper no pump no light no electricity.

This thread contains information that should clarify all you need. The first post contains links to threads of users giving build guides for the hatchery.
