BBS Questions


Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm not sure if this topic should go here or in the Fish Breeding section so if this is not the right place admins please feel free to move it.

Here are my BBS questions:

The directions on the Co-Op site say to use 1 tablespoon of salt per liter of water. I have always used 1 2/3 tablespoons per liter. Do the Co-Op eggs have different salinity requirements than other eggs?

I'm a bit confused about the packaging. Do I dump the eggs from the zip lock pouch into the canister? Do I toss the canister and keep the eggs in the pouch? Do I toss the metal lid of the canister and use only the plastic lid?

BBS are very hardy so 1tbs and 1.67tbs may both work equally well.

I believe the intent with the packaging was to get a triple seal and for you to pour the eggs into the tin for an easy scoop option if you wanted. But whetever works best for you is fine. I keep mine in the bag and tin and parcel it out slowly into tiny bottles as I use it up.
