Continuous Brine Shrimp Hatching Feeder

I noticed 8O that someone is selling a continuous brine shrimp hatching feeder on Ebay. It seems like a really neat idea and I was wondering if anyone has one or has had one, and what they think of it? I'll attempt to attach a pic of it.

Someone posted about having one of these awhile ago, not sure how it worked out for them. My only concern is that brine shrimp are not very nutritious and any real nutrition gotten from them is what is fed to them, so it's like giving your fish a continuous supply of potato chips.

what I saw about it...

Keep the water temperature between 77F - 82F.
Connect airline tubing and air pump (STELLAR) to obtain aeration in the hatching chamber.
Dump 0.05oz-0.07oz salt into Salt & Egg Deposit.
Wait a few minutes for salt to dissolve in the water, then put 0.03oz brine shrimp eggs into the Salt & Egg Deposit; measuring spoons are included in the kit.

The eggs absorb water and go down into the Hatching Chamber.
They start hatching in about 18 to 24 hours.
Hatched sea monkeys move up and down in the chamber with the water flow.
Then they gather at the border surface between the marine water and the fresh water looking for slower water flow and preferable lighting.
Sea Monkeys will stay in the Distributing Chamber for a while to get used to the fresh water. Then finally they will step out into the fresh water tank.
The sequence will take about 24 to 30 hours.

Rinse the Hatcher at least once a week or before the use after the interval.

You may collect unfertilized eggs and shells at the water surface in the Hatcher.

I tried one of these when I had pipe fish. They are very hit and miss at best. I found it was much easier to make small batch's in a 2 gal fish bowl and an airstone. Feed with phytoplankton when they hatch to give them a boost in nutrition value. Depending on what animals you are feeding them to, newly hatched brine is somehwat nutritious although very tedious.

Cheers
Steve
