That's fine. The earlier message I was questioning came via the Killietalk 
owner and was not signed. Here is more of the text:

"Robert Ellerman hits it right on as this question again arises about brine
shrimp (BS??).  In 30 years of hatching about a tenth to a quarter cup of
brine shrimp cysts a day (yes more than a pound of eggs a month) you must
circulate the water.  In bubbling air through the water you also enhance the
oxygen exchange by renewing surface for gas exchange and enhance the ability
of the hatch solution to sustain live newly hatched shrimp.  And since the
newly hatched shrimp don't molt for several hours after hatching and don't
eat during this period, all you want to do is keep 'em alive until they are
fed to your fish.
