Hi

Could anyone tell me how much salt I should add to a litre of water to hatch some brine shrimp.

I've got some fry which appeared in my sons aquarium six weeks ago and I'm currently feeding them finely crushed pellets and the odd crushed pea. I'd read brine shrimp were good but the packet I got from ebay had no instructions :(

Thanks from a newby.......great site!!!

Here's a link to the best directions I've ever read for brineshrimp:

Also, note the PH requirement. And you need a seive (small screen for rinsing the newly hatched shrimp).

Yes, fresh hatched brineshrimp are the best food for fry. They are also messy, and can foul the water quickly, so do extra water changes and you'll be fine.
