Connect air pump, check valve and air regulator value to hatchery.
Fill hatchery to about 90% (or to fill line) with aquarium or clean water.
Add +_ 10 grams course (tonic salt) or hatching salt.
Add 3 – 5 grams brine shrimp eggs.
Allow 24 to 48 hours for brine shrimp to hatch. Hatching time depends on temperature and egg quality. Brine shrimp eggs hatch best at 24 to 29 degrees Celsius.
Using a light source from the top of the incubator reduces hatching times
Collecting the Brine Shrimp is best done by turning off the air and allowing the water to settle. Once the water settles the shrimp sink and the empty shells float. Moving the light source to the bottom of the incubator attracts the shrimp down. You then allow the live baby brine shrimp to flow out of the airline into a net or container and feed to the fry.
