Exclamation What The Heck BrineShrimp??????

Well I got a bunch of brine shrimp eggs, and i've been hatching some brine shrimp for my small fish. Couple weeks ago I emptied all the eggs into one container and add some eggs on my fingers so I just dipped my fingers in my empty 20G expecting all the eggs to get filtered up.


Now recently i've been seeing tons of brineshirmp in the tank, plus i've been seen some pretty nice sized ones.



How long can these guys live for?
How big can they seriously get?

I've seen wild fairy shrimp (similar freshwater species) around 3/4" consistently. No idea about brine shrimp specifically.

Yeah, I keep seeing them in the tanks, kind of gets on my nerves, since I think that my tank is kind of dirty, then I see tons of white specks that are freely swimming.
