Brine shrimp are the best source of nutrition for your jellyfish. However hatching them can be a challenge!
Here are some helpful tips on hatching brine shrimp.
First you’ll need to source your eggs… Now, you can buy cheap dry cysts with the shells still on but the process of separating the tiny shrimp from the egg shells is almost impossible! So you’ll need to purchase “Decapsulated Brine Shrimp Eggs”. These are the embryos of the brine shrimp that have had the shells taken off them. *PLUG ALERT! UK Jellyfish supply high quality decapsulated brine shrimp eggs!
Now you’ll need a hatcher! Have a look on youtube if you want to DIY a hatcher. Otherwise you can buy hatchers from eBay etc.
Next you’ll need an air pump to aerate your eggs. Add some salt water at 20-30ppt and bubble at room temperature.
Then add those eggs!
Wait for 24 hours and your shrimp will be ready to feed straight to your jellies.
There you have it!
If I can help with anything else feel free to ask in our forums 🙂
