Jim, my experience with these feeders is they tend to clog up with granular 
fish food. I haven't tried them with brine shrimp eggs, so I don't know. Mine 
burned out because it jammed the last time I used it. I would also be 
concerned about the humidity over a warm hatching solution. On the other 
hand, if you keep your hatching solution cooler -- say 72 degrees rather than 
80 degrees, they will hatch slowly, and not as well, but they would live 
longer and you would have some when you get home.
