Hatching Brine Shrimp

Starting my first batch of live food. Should my aeration be strong or gentle.

If you are doing brine shrimp, your air needs to be strong enough to keep the eggs in motion all the time. If you see them clustering on the bottom of the hatchery, you need more air or reposition the air so that you create a circular motion in the water to keep them moving.

Hope this helps
