Its really not time consuming at all. You set up you shrimp hatchery which is two 2 liter bottles and an air line tube. Put in your salt and water and a pinch of baking soda. Then put in your brine shrimp eggs and wait. Thats it

I've used table salt and it's worked fine for me, but I'm not really in the business of convincing anyone otherwise, so if people really want to use expensive aquarium salt, or salt at all (the baking soda method works great), then it really doesn't hurt my feelings. Hatching brine shrimp can be a time consuming process but it's a staple for small fry.

I find myself switching between BBS and microworms until the fry are large enough to where I can tell if they are eating powder.

Ill totally agree with you on the brine being good for baby fish, but that's basically all I really know, I didn't even realize I needed a diff. Net until they hatched lol (had to go out and get one) I don't think ill make another attempt for some time, which is cool, because I don't have any fish that need them, I just wanted to try somthn new for my betta and the neons I suppose i

I don't use a brine shrimp net. I do have a plastic sieve that I use sometimes, but before I got that I just used coffee filters. Use an airline tubing to suck the BBS out of the solution and into the coffee filter, rinse, serve.

Hey, I have a question related to the subject, what fish benefit of being fed with brine shrimp? Salt and freshwater?

Live food is bascally un processed and contains the nutrients your fish evolved to need
