Title Brine shrimp hatchery
Description This is the simplest brine shrimp hatchery I have made. It's a 1-liter bottle held upside down by a small plastic box. The tubing is held into the bottom with a piece of rigid tubing.

In the photo, it's empty (not in use).

Add 500 ml (about 2 cups) of filtered (no chlorine) water.
Add salt and brine shrimp eggs (I would have to look up the amounts).
Connect the hose to an air pump, and adjust so there is just a trickle of bubbles.
Wait 1.5 to 2 days, depending on temperature.
Harvest baby brine shrimp (for feeding larvae).
