- Brine Shrimp Hatchery Dish - Brine Shrimp Direct Inc.
No Aeration, Heat, or Tubing Required!
Brine Shrimp Direct's Brine Shrimp Hatchery Dish is probably the easiest to use hatchery on the market today. The unique design keeps all the unhatched eggs and shells in the outer ring, where the hatched shrimp will swim to the open center section making harvesting easy, fast, and clean. The shallow dish allows for natural separation where the inner ring keeps the unwanted eggs and shells from making their way to the center. In most cases, it will only take 24 hours for the brine shrimp to hatch, at which point they can be fed directly to your aquarium or placed in another vessel for gut-loading with spirulina or paracoccus powders.
Average Hatching Rate - 0.4 grams of Premium Brine Shrimp Eggs can yield over 100,000 baby brine shrimp.
Dimensions - 8" Diameter x 2.25" Tall
How To Use?
1. Start by taking all the components and rinsing them in freshwater.
2. Place the dish in a warm, well-lit area and fill with 2.5% (25ppt) saltwater to the fill line and insert the separation ring.
3. With the included scoop, evenly spread one-scoop of Premium Brine Shrimp Eggs in the outer ring of the dish.
4. Let the hatchery sit undisturbed for 24-36 hours.
5. Once the brine shrimp have hatched, they can be harvested with the included Artemia Sieve.
6. After use, it is recommended to give the dish and components a rinse with freshwater.

It Works By Ronald on 5/4/2020Ronald would recommend this product to a friendCrazy thing really works. I've used the hatchery that uses the two liter bottle with an air pump. It works good, but separating the shells from the shrimp after they hatch is hard to do. This solves that problem. I give it four stars since it's expensive for a plastic dish. I read comments where it came with a bottle of eggs from other sites, but my order did not. So don't forget the eggs.
Works well By Bill on 4/18/2020Bill would recommend this product to a friendSimple, easy to use, no heater needed, no air needed. Works well.
Just so simple to use and amazing results By Harj on 4/8/2020Harj would recommend this product to a friendI ordered this as my bangaii cardinal was holding babies and i needed a supply of baby brine shrimp. Ordered this with the brs brine shrimp eggs. My first order had an issue with the center sieve, so contacted BRS and they immediately sent me another (2 day delivery!). So i got it and got salt water to the 1.018 level and filled the dish to the level indicated and left it on a shelf for 24 hours. I checked 24 hours later and saw a few baby brines, then left it for another 12 hours. Came back and "BOOM", there were hundreds of baby brine shrimps. At this point the cardinal babies were out and i had them in an aquarium net breeder in my refugium. All i had to do is take the white filter cup out of the dish and put into the net breeder, I have been able to do this for 3 days on the first batch. Then i took the remainder out into another container, washed the dish and started again.. its so easy! no lights or airstones and it just works. Thank you BRS!
Best brine shrimp hatchery ever! By Larry on 10/2/2019Larry would recommend this product to a friendI have hatched brine shrimp using every method out there. I figured I'd give this thing a shot and it's absolutely incredible. I purchased some BRS brine shrimp to give them a shot. Simply put - it's insanely easy to use and the brine shrimp started swimming within 24 hours. It produces baby brine continuously and they swim right into the collection sieve automatically. You'll never want to do it any other way again!
Works great By David on 9/14/2019David would recommend this product to a friendI've had one of these for a year or so. It works great, and it's very simple. Fill to the line with fresh saltwater, sprinkle the Brine Shrimp eggs around the outside. 24 hrs later you have brine shrimp in the middle. I just take the white filter cup over to my tank and spray a little rodi to get the little guys into my tank, and every fish goes nuts for these things. It makes full cups for about 4 straight days. A quick rinse and dry it overnight and repeat. There are so many the first few days you can put thousands into a separate container which will last the 2 days that you clean and reset it all (you have to watch for spoiling and sometimes I strain them and give them a new container to help them survive). I highly recommend this, one of my favorite products.
