Send a message via AIM to IworkatPSP
Get 2 soda bottles, cut the top off of one and the bottom off of the other. Set them up like this:


Sorry for the crude drawing but I did it about a minute.


This set up will prevent brine shrimp from settling on the bottom.

I got one of the simple hatcheries available from most LFS (www.thatpetplace.com).

Specific gravity of the hatch water should be about 1.010-1.020 and it should be aerated to get the best hatch amount.

Should also be pretty warm for best hatching. When I first hatched them I thought i was a failure, but I just wasn't looking closely enough!!! they are TINY little buggers, hold the hatchery up to a light and look for tiny swimmers .. .
