I've been putting my leftover baby brine into a 1 gallon bowl. I top off evaporated water and add some powdered food every day or two. The shrimp are now mating, I believe. The guy who used a bucket no fuss method showed how easy it can be. The only thing I can complain about is mosquitos also like salt water. My fish like mosquito and brine shrimp so they don't mind.
