Brine Shrimp Eggs from 1996?


Recommended Posts

I bought a bunch of fishroom supplies from a breeder getting out of the hobby earlier today. 

While going through the storage containers of stuff I found an old can of brine shrimp eggs.  It looked to have been stored at fish room temperature or higher for many years. The can was pretty rusted and the eggs were actually sealed in a glass mason jar inside the coffee style can.  Some were clumped and not in the greatest condition. 

The brand is Sanders, which I looked up is still selling brine shrimp and has the same phone number and address as listed on the can. The can has a copyright with the year 1996 and is pretty aged looking.  I have not seen this brand at my local supplier. 

Anyway I thought it would be a fun experiment to make a batch using these eggs.  Will report back with results if anything hatches.

I would worry about the rust particles getting in the eggs and hatch and going into the tank. I’m not sure if this would actually even be harmful but something you may want to look into.
