Raising Your Own Brine Shrimp From Eggs: How To Make A Grow
Brine shrimp are tiny crustaceans that defy all odds of survival. Raising your own brine shrimp from eggs is an easy and quick way to keep a steady supply of healthy, live food for your aquarium fish. To create a "grown-out" system of your own, you'll need a few simple supplies. Nauplii (Baby shrimp) are an excellent source of food for adult fish, but they are too small to feed adult fish. For the brine to grow, they need a constant supply of food that is palatable and is easily consumed. There are several types of brine seafood foods available on the market. They lack nutrients that help shrimp grow. Your brine shippers should have food available 24/7. How often and how much should you feed depends on the size of your grow-out containers and population. A good "rule of thumb" is to feed just enough of the mixture to make the containers water slightly cloudy. Turn off the air supply to your containers for about 15 minutes. This allows debris to settle to the bottom and brines shrimp to rise to the surface. Fill your second gallon with clean saltwater. Move the air pumps and anti-aircraft to this crate. . . .
