Feeding Instructions:

  1. Setting up the Hatchery
    • Take a 2 liter soda bottle and cut off the bottom of the bottle (right where it starts to curve inward).
    • Turn the bottle upside down and screw it into the Hatchery base.
    • Attach one end of the airline tubing to the bottom of the base and the other end to an air pump. To prevent pump damage during a power failure use a check valve (found at your local pet/fish store) or place pump above water surface level.
  2. Hatching eggs
    • Fill the bottle with 1 liter (about 1/2 full) of dechlorinated water.
    • Plug in air pump to start aeration.
    • Add one packet of Hatch Mix™ (if you are mixing your own eggs and salt; use a teaspoon of eggs and 1 tablespoon of aquarium rock salt or synthetic sea salt).
    • Place a light source about 8 inches away from the bottom of the bottle.
    • Temperature should be about 80-82 degrees F; pH should be maintained above 8.0.
    • Eggs should hatch in 24-36 hours
  3. Harvesting the baby brine shrimp
    • Unplug air pump (keep pump above water surface)
    • Wait approximately 5-10 minutes for babies to swim towards the light at the bottom of the bottle and for the shells to float to the top.
    • Remove airline tubing from pump (keeping above water surface).
    • Slowly lower tubing over a brine shrimp net to strain babies from water.
    • Rinse babies under cool tap water to remove salt.
    • Feed to your fish.
