  1. Good product. Easy to collect the little guys. Review by DanaK
    Product Rating:

    I had a brine shrimp hatchery once a long time ago when I just had freshwater tropical fish. It was a little different than this one. I like parts of it better and I like parts of this one better.

    Pros -- It is very easy to collect the baby brine shrimp from this shrimpery. I fill the collection cup with my tank water and put it onto the shrimpery as the directions state. The babies will swim up into the cup by the hundreds or thousands. I then just pour the entire cup back into my tank and my Xenia, Featherdusters, Zoa's, Corals, Clam and fish get a nice fresh tatsy treat. Even my scooter blenny (dragonette) chases and eats them, but she'll also eat frozen adult brine shrimp

    Cons -- My old shrimp hatchery from a hundred years ago had a hole for inserting airline to an airstone. This one you can put an airline through the collection hole, but it's not held in place and the whole top is very loose, so the hatchery leaks water from around the cover if you aerate. Lots of water. I have mine sitting in a small bucket to contain it.

    I've only had it for a couple of weeks. I'm working on a way to feed the babies so they can grow to adulthood and then maybe enrich them with Selcon. I think I "fed" them the Selcon too early this first batch and may have killed the ones that were left after a few good feedings of babies. I seem to remember from way back when that they recommended feeding the babies hard boiled egg yolk, but I'm old and that could totally be some false memory. I'm going to try it next batch though.
