  1. Hi I have been hatching brine shrimp for the past couple day. I only have like 20 fry and rest goes to bigger fish to feed so I'm using 1/4 teaspoon of eggs. What salt/baking soda would you recommend ? Im experimenting 3 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda for the last batch. Does this look ready its been 24hour or should I give it longer time? Temp is at 75degree
  2. The scoop that comes with the 4lbs repashy is perfect for getting salt for hatching brine shrimp. If you can’t find a non metal spoon this works perfectly.
  3. Hey Fish Friends, Last week I received my first order from Aquarium Co-Op, which included a Ziss Brine Shrimp Hatchery. I'm on my second batch of BBS hatched out of this thing, and the results have been outstanding. My current "recipe" is the suggested TWO liters of water (I use lukewarm to slightly hot so as to dissolve the salt and buffer quicker), FOUR tablespoons of rock salt, ONE teaspoon of Epsom salt, ONE teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), and TWO teaspoons of BBS eggs. I add the BBS eggs a bit after the mix gets going and the water cools off a little. Presto.......live BBS in about 18 hours. I have around 600 assorted angelfish fry and around 400 Parachromis motaguensis "Red Tiger Motaguense) growing up and need a lot of live BBS on hand. This unit is working perfectly for me so far. Looking forward to ordering a second unit to supply some other breeding fishes I'm working with. Cheers, --Brian
