 I use 2 tablespoonsful per 2 liter bottle at 85 F with aeration. The brine
 shrimp only live 36 hours under these conditions because I hatch a lot (about
 1 teaspoonful of eggs) each day. If I want them to live longer (for example,
 if I expect to be away for a day), I hatch them at a cooler temperature and
 less concentrated. I don't think you can keep a lot alive without aeration.
 Mine are dead the first day if the air stops!
	Hope this helps.
