I hatch out everyday brine shrimp. Some egg shell float but some fall to
the bottom. When I harvest the shrimp, I have egg shells with them and it
become a nuisance. I still have a half can of shrimp eggs and I hate to
throw them out. I would appreciate knowing how not to have the egg shells
fall to the bottom, but to rise to the top.
Do what it takes to improve your hatch rate. The ones falling to the
bottom are unhatched eggs -- the floaters are the shells.
Lower salinity, more (brighter) light, higher temp., pre-wetting and
more perfect agitation will all increase hatch rate and reduce the
number of (lower) unhatched eggs.
Last, but not least, buy a better quality cyst and the problem goes
