Re: Adult Brine Shrimp
First , this was not a serious attempt to raise bbs to adult, When I
mix up my hatching mix I use 4 tablespoons of rock (or Ice Cream ) salt
per gallon of water. In this case I siphoned off and collected as many
bbs that I could feed my fish. The remnants of the hatching mix I simply
poured into a clean 5-gallon bucket - 4 gallons in all. I set the
bucket near the back porch where it receives full sun (southerly
exposure) most of the day. Then the rains came and filled the bucket up
completely to overflowing - So I have no Idea how saline it is and not
having a proper gauge to measure the specific gravity I don't have an
answer for you. I know now, since I mentioned this on killitalk, that
others have been a tad more scientific and have good answers for you. I
was just thrilled to see that many brine shrimp of all sizes in a simple
5-gallon bucket. Next year I'll repeat the process with some larger
containers and some specific goals and proper instrumentation.
