Live baby brine shrimp are trusted food source used by fish breeders around the world to raise newly hatched fish fry. The movement of the live brine shrimp stimulates the feeding response in fish. Newly hatched brine shrimp also doubles as a great source of nutrition for young fish fry. Natural color enhancers such as beta carotene are found in brine shrimp as well as essential lipids and unsaturated fatty acids which are a necessity for fish growth and biological processes of fish. Many reef aquarists also feed live baby brine shrimp to corals and inverts in the reef aquarium.

Shrimpery® Hatching Unit
3 Packets of Brine Shrimp Hatch Mix
- Empty one pack of Hatch Mix into Shrimpery.
- Using room temperature tap water fill Shrimpery to marker level and collector bottle to brim. Stir contents of Shrimpery until salt is no longer visible at bottom.
- Cover collector bottle and Shrimpery. Water level should be higher than circular ledge in Shrimpery cover. (add water if necessary)
- Place the collector bottle (lid side down) into Shrimpery cover. Note: tap top of collector bottle to release air bubble(s) that may be blocking hole in collector lid.
- within 18 to 40 hours (depending upon temperature) brine shrimp, naturally attracted to light will be seen swimming up into the collector bottle*.
- Feed your baby fish from the freshwater in the collection bottle. You may collect additional brine shrimp for as long as 24 hours. (to collect more shrimp as often as every 2 hours simply refill collector bottle with fresh tap water)
*Only the brine shrimp swim up through the hole and are washed free of salt. The saltwater being heavier than freshwater in the collection cup stays behind.
