Brine shrimp eggs
Into a container add 1 quart (1 liter) of water, add 1 teaspoon of brine shrimp eggs, plug in air pump to start aeration, after 1 hour of rehydration add 2 tablespoons of aquarium (rock) salt and keep aeration on. Keep temperatures between 80-82 degrees F (26-28 degrees C), maintain a pH of 8.0 or above and eggs should hatch in 24-36 hours. After eggs hatch turn off aeration, direct a light source at the bottom, wait 5-10 minutes for shells to float to top and baby shrimp to swim to bottom. Remove airline at pump end. Keeping above water surface, slowly lower airline and siphon water into fine net. Rinse shrimp under fresh water and feed to fish.

This is a 6 gram vial of brine shrimp eggs as described and in the picture, it seems like a small amount but it is definitely a lot. This will feed my 5 tetras and baby bala shark for many months. It only comes with the eggs, you will need a few other things that aren't hard to find. Okay, Lets get started.
The directions on the back tells you to use WAY too much brine shrimp eggs at once. Keep in mind if you do not feed the brine shrimp they will die within a couple days so you want to hatch as much as you would use in a day or two. I have done the math and lowered the measurements to 1 cup instead of 1 quart. The way I set up my hatchery is simple.
You will need a glass jar. Inside you will put:
1 cup of Tap water or Tank water. (I used dechlorinated water from my fish tank.)
1 pinch of baking soda to buffer the pH of the water.(This will help improve the hatch rate of the eggs.)
An air pump WITHOUT an airstone.(Use the end of the tubing and place it at the bottom of the jar.)
1/4 of a teaspoon of eggs. (Doesn't have to be exact, can be a bit more or less you would still get a good amount of brine shrimp)
For the salt you will need 1.5 or 1 and a half teaspoon of [NON-IODIZED] kitchen salt, sea salt, or aquarium salt. (I used Non-Iodized Sea salt. These salts will increase hatch rate compared to [IODIZED] table salt).
You want to keep the water at 80-85 degrees this will make them hatch faster. You might have to get creative here, You can try and find a way to get your hatchery secured at the very top of the water in your tank so your heater will do the job for you.
Before you throw everything in the jar and set up your hatchery, I recommend you take your time by adding a pinch of baking soda to your water and letting it mix for a minute. Then you will add your 1/4 teaspoon of eggs and let the air pump mix the eggs around the jar. [Do not add the salt yet!] Let your eggs mix for atleast an hour before you add salt. Once everything is set up, you can leave it alone for 24 hrs.
Once 24hrs is up you will definitely see live brine shrimp and they are ready to be cleaned and fed to your fish. I like to let my jar sit for a couple extra hours as this allows more eggs to hatch.
This is the end of my super long review, to those who read it please let me know if it was helpful and have fun. Thanks!
I set up a jar on an old aero garden 3 base, using it's light and air pump in the tank. Let the tank age for a few months (it was not supposed to be that long, it is just what happened while I decided on the brand of brine shrimp to buy: seriously, I research brands for more hours than I care to admit-it's brine shrimp LOL).
Anyway, my jar has grown a nice bit of algae and I feed crushed spiraling and yeast once in a while but they are thriving little friends. There is not a fish that lives well in such a small jar (1 gal) so I needed a different water feature on my desk. This is perfect. It's too early to get a good picture right now, when there is natural lighting, I will add a photo of my little study buddies.
