Great suggestion!  I used to hatch them by using an inverted 2-liter 
bottle with the bottom cut off and with the cap screwed on.  I set it 
in an aquarium in an inverted clay flower pot with its bottom cut 
off.  The glass aquarium cover caught the salt spray.

I don't know why I didn't do it your way because I siphoned them the 
way you described and all you need is the small opening in the top 
for that.
