I use 2 tablespoonsful per 2 liter bottle at 85º 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.
