Re: Keeping LFS brine shrimp
Set up a 20 gallon long with a density slightly higher than that of sea
water. With my well water I can use Rock Salt. Add the eggs to the water 1/4
teaspoonful. One mistake a lot of people do is they add an airstone and the
fine bubbles kill the shrimp. I use a chunk of Styrofoam and insert a ridged
air line tube into it so the it is 3 inches below the surface to keep the
surface moving. Set the heater for 84 degrees f.
To feed the shrimp in a glass jar 3/4 full of warm water 110 degrees add
one teaspoonful of table sugar and 1/4 teaspoonful of fast acting yeast.
Stir the liquid and allow it to sit for about 20 min. if the yeast is
working it will make a foam on top of the jar. If there is no foam the yeast
is not working. feed just a little of this so that it lightly clouds the
water. When the water is clear in the tank again feed the shrimp some more.
If the water evaporates down some do NOT ADD MORE WATER.
I have used this method many times to raise Brine shrimps to adulthood. They
are a pain to raise and The only reason I raise them is it is fun to show
them to people. I had one tank of them that I kept going for over 5 years on
the first 1/4 teaspoonful of eggs.

breeding is killing the wild supply.
