brine shrimp keeping

whats the ideal way to keep them alive for feeding over the week... ive looked around off google and such i have not really tried here alot yet but already seems to be a wide range of ways or ideas

looking maybe at something i can use just homemade or home found things to hold them and keep them alive for i dont know a weeks time i guess, then i can get more every week or wahtever the best way to keep them is

i have them in a 5 gal bucket with about 1 gal of water at the bottom... i thought i had something better tio keep them in but i cant find what i was looking for lol

I think you'll find that most folks would recommend not using brine shrimp as your primary food source. They don't contain a lot of nutritional value... the equivalent of junk food, basically.

When using them, I've kept them in a bucket with an small airstone. I drilled a hole in the top of the bucket for the hose in order to keep any smell at bay.
