These eggs are 95% hatch rate & premium quality. Freshly hatched brine shrimp are the ideal first food for most newly hatched fish fry due to the fact that their movement attracts the fish. Where as flake food & even "Liquiefry" are often ignored.

The critical time for fish fry is the first couple of days after hatching. Newly hatched brine shrimp if fed to the fry soon after hatching still have their egg sack attached & this is the finest fry food available. These eggs have an 90% hatch rate & will hatch out after 24 to 48 hours, depending on temperature. I use them daily so I know they will hatch if you follow the instructions.

I always obtain proof of posting. Please check out my other items for fish keepers & thanks for looking. PLEASE ENSURE THAT ON RECEIPT THEY ARE KEPT COOL AT ALL TIMES, PREFERABLY REFRIGERATED.

Store in a cool, dark place & they will be good for at least 12 months. Whereas flake food & even "Liquiefry" are often ignored. If you follow the instructions, you will not be disappointed. As a fish keeper, I myself use these eggs, so I know they will hatch. Obviously if you have a lot of fry, hatch out more eggs at a time?

They only take 30-36 hours to hatch if kept warm. When feeding to fry, they need to be consumed fairly quickly, before the shrimp absorb their egg sack. After 24 hours their nutritional value decreases. ENSURE ALL EQUIPMENT IS CLEAN BEFORE USE!! Put 500ML tap water in clear container pop bottle is ideal. Add 1 heaped dessert spoon salt & half teaspoon of eggs (Can be scaled up for larger production if the ratios are the same) If your water is soft, add half teaspoon baking soda (not baking powder) to raise the ph of the water. Place in strongly lit & warm place. Keep light on throughout hatching. Aerate strongly using air-pump WITHOUT an air stone to keep the eggs in suspension, Small bubbles from an air stone attach to the newly hatched shrimp & kill them. After 30-40 hours (depending on temperature) strain through a fine sieve (kitchen paper is ideal) & dip into tank.
