jwcarlson Posted April 21 Share Posted April 21 (edited) After my initial struggles with hatching BBS, I have been cruising along using two Ziss hatcheries without issue for months. I don't hatch much (about half a teaspoon). Using ACO brine shrimp eggs. I am at the bottom of the egg bag and now two hatches in a row have been total failures. And putting the eggs in was an immediate failure even, they sink and most will not get tumbled at all. What's weird is ZERO live shrimp in the soup at all. Really confusing. The first two pics are from yesterday the second two today. Eggs in 12-48 hours in the pics. The last pic almost looks like I put WAY more eggs in then normal. But even if I did, I am not sure that would cause this problem. I haven't tweaked air or salt or anything since I dialed everything in. Any ideas? I started two new ones this AM and the eggs seem to be acting normal. One from a new tin of eggs and the other from the old one. I do use a heater for a bit in each hatch, but the eggs sinking was independent from the heater being used. Edited April 21 by jwcarlson Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
