-----------Equipments & Supplies------------ *Two 1 litre bottle *A pair of scissor *A drill *An airpump airline tubing check valve *A lamp *A syringe *A spoon *Non-iodized salt *Brine shrimp eggs --------------Making the Brine Shrimp Hatchery--------------- *Phase 1 1) Cut the base off on bottle no.1 and cut the top half on bottle no.2 2) Take the lid off the bottle and drill a hole at the center. 3) Make a hatch on bottle no.2 and put everything together. **Phase 2 1) Turn on airpump 2) Fill the container with freshwater 3) Add 2 tspn of salt ***Phase 3 1) Pour 1/2 tspn of brine shrimp eggs into the hatching solution and stir. 2) Turn on lamp and wait between 36-48 hours. Then harvest. -----------Storing Brine Shrimp Eggs------------- Store in a tightly sealed container that is free from moisture and in a cool environment at or below 50°F. ------------Hatching Environment----------------- For best result: Salinity should be 25 parts per thousand (ppt) salt solution, or approximately 1 and 2/3 tablespoons of salt per quart (or liter) of water. pH of 8.0 or higher is recommended. Water temperature for a 24-hour complete hatch is 80-82°F or 26-28°C. Lowering the temperature would result in a longer hatching time. Do not exceed 30°C. Light is necessary to trigger the hatching mechanism within the embryo during the first few hours of incubation. Maintaining a light source during the entire incubation period is recommended to obtain optimum hatch results and for ...
