how do i grow brine shrimp?

hey my names mike, my fish are pretty picky with what they eat and all they'll touch mostly is live brine shrimp (no frozen brine, and they hardly even look at flakes). So i was wondering how i could consistently produce my own brine or at least how to keep the ones i buy in stores alive for a few days

San Fransisco Bay brand frozen foods do make kits to grow live brine. Generally, it's a container with hatch mix and eggs to get you started. Some have just a base you use a soda bottle with.


We, as a people, know so much more about outer space than we do about our own oceans. This lack of knowledge can very well spell the dangers that lay in wait for us.

The oceans surely would swallow us before a rock comes down to smite the planet of it's life.

Try getting frozen brine with something mixed in like spirilina or other product. but yes they make kits where you can raise your own but it`s some work. I have a bunch that swim around in my sump.


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.

By storing the LFS bought ones in the refrigerator, you can usually keep most of them alive for 2-3 days.

Other than keeping in the refrig. (has to be warmed up and gut loaded before feeding to the fish though) all I can suggest is look at my brine shrimp page and see if anything I do might be of use to you.
