Keeping brine shrimp for a long period

I can hatch brine shrimp but for about 2 days but after that they all die. Why do they do this? On youtube, they can keep them for a very long time. I want it to be east to feed my stuff but if they die all the time, it's hard to do.

are you feeding them? brine shrimp isn't very nutritious anyway, so i wouldn't use them for feeding on a regular basis.
you can make frozen food that is very nutritious, that you can feed everything with, for just a few bucks. much easier and better IMO.
