Ziss brine shrimp hatchery in aquarium

Recommended Posts

If you don't mind a bit of a janky setup you can use some clamps to fasten it to the tank. I did this once cause my room temp is a bit low and I needed bbs fast.

Like @doktor zhivago mentioned make sure your hatchery doesn't leak!

Here is a great video where dean shows how he hatches bbs. If you prepare your bbs like this they should survive until you feed again the next day. This means you can hatch them outside of your tank and don't have the potential of acidentally spilling 2 liters of saltwater into your tank.



Let us know how it goes 🙂

Would I be able to put my ziss brine shrimp hatchery in my aquarium? I don't have an extra heater for them and the ambient temp in my house is gonna make them hatch slow (ab 55°).

Use a lamp with a incandescent bulb.  I used to keep water lines from freezing using a 75 Watt bulb

You can totally hang it in the tank. It's designed to do that. It won't float with water in it. It keeps temp incredibly well this way. Then you hang it on the outside to harvest it.
