Brine Shrimp?

Postby celestialdude » Fri Apr 13, 2007 3:18 pm

I'm new to Brine Shrimp... has anyone succesfully been able to raise them in a "sustainable" tank that can be harvested to feed fish? Meaning, they go through their complete life cycle continously in the tank and there is always a ready supply to be harvested... rather than buying the eggs from somewhere, hatching them, and using up all the ones that hatched.

If you have any experience in this area, feel free to share!


Cheers :D

I like to keep fish in my tanks! Seriously it sounds way too much hastle and a big tin of cysts costs about 20GBP and lasts a year.

i normally buy mine from the lfs you get 5 bags (100ml) for £3(GBP) which last about a week ( i find they dont last much longer in the surplied sealed bags so it works out about right)

however im thinking of setting up a pint glass with an airstone in to keep the healthyer (spelling)

I tried basically what the guy in the website that Aquaseafoam posted and hardly got any at all. Only about 20 the first 24 hours and maybe double after 48.

Don't know what I did wrong. Will try again though. It might have been the salt I used. It's got some weird chemical in it (as well as sugar, for some strange reason...)

wow, 13...it's been a while since I counted them up... (And yes, they all have names ;) )

I had to buy special salt from the fish store as ALL regular salt is required to have iodine in it in Canada.

Haven't tried it out yet. Tried with normal salt, but didn't get to many. Then got clumsy and splilt what I did have over carpet. Oops...

Following on from the correct advice from L168, try and keep them warm 70f-80f, do not go too warm though or they all die.
I moved my hatchery from waist height to a shelf that is head height, hot air rises and i got two batches of hatched but dead shrimp!! I am trying to work out if they died when i cut off the air and left them to settle before syphoning them out?? The still fed the fry and they were happy to eat them?
If you do not want to, or cannot continuously be hatching BBS, do one big huge hatch and filter the shrimp into cold fresh water as soon as they hatch and then into small icecube trays. Place them into the freezer and hey-presto a years supply of very fresh BBS.. Best thing is you know exactly what you are feeding your fish.
