Re: Hatching Brine Shrimp
Just to echo what Robert has said - I nearly gave up on BS cos I used these useless tubes. The hatches were tiny and I couldn't see what all the fuss was about.
When some proper eggs showed up at a local auction I was amazed at the difference in hatch rate. For the record I have hard water, hatch in 2l soda bottles with a
tablespoon of ordinary cooking salt (cos it's cheap). Hatch in 24-48hrs.
