Hatch N Feed Brine Shrimp Hatchery

The unit can be installed in both Marine and Freshwater tanks. The Hatchery should be placed at a water level location using the suction cup.

How It Works

Place the brine shrimp eggs and salt mixture (sold separately) in the designated chamber. The eggs absorb water and will travel down into the hatching chamber. Eggs will begin to hatch within 18 to 24 hours. Hatched shrimp move up and down in the chamber with the water flow. Then they gather at the border surface between the marine water and the fresh water looking for slower water flow and preferable lighting. The brine shrimp will stay in the distributing chamber for a while to get used to the fresh water. Finally, they will swim out into the fresh water tank. The entire sequence will take about 24 to 30 hours.


Requires a small air pump that will provide between 75-100 l/hr. For freshwater aquariums, the addition of aquarium salt to the Hatchery will be necessary.
