will still be the best, in this case moreso. Any impurities in tap or filtered water will significantly reduce the yield from chlorine, chloramines, copper and the like.
If I remember correctly, the recommended environment for brine hatching is 1.028 SG
Considering that, when added to the main tank or fuge they will not likely live long with that drastic a change in parameters. They will also easily fall prey to any animals, pods
, corals and equipement. I'd say a few hours at best once moved.
Unless the system for hatching is quite elaborate, I would not produce more than a few days worths at a time. Less than 1/8th teaspoon of decapsulated
A small bucket with a heater and airstone is usually the best method. You want no moving parts in the hatchery but something powerful enough to keep the water moving. Provided the hatching "tank" is small enough, a few well placed larger airstones and a good airpump should do it.
