Re: Ouch! Brine Shrimp Eggs
I have purchased a can of these new Grade 'A' BBS eggs from Brine Shrimp
Direct at $50 and am not overly excited about the hatch, but am glad to not
spend $75 for a can.
I would say 80% is the very high end of the hatch rate. After 24 hours, the
hath seems complete and I have noticed a fairly high percentage of unhatched
eggs (meaning heavy and at the bottom of my container mixed with the live
BBS instead of floating to the top.) For me, it means more time cleaning
the egg shells out of the tanks, but also that I need to use a slightly
larger amount on the teaspoon to get equal food value for the fish - thus
purchasing more eggs annually. At 48 hours I see no significant difference.
