Just add soda bottle, air pump and water. An educational kit for hatching Brine Shrimp Eggs.

This is the perfect kit for children to learn about life and how it is created. The excitement that this kit sparks in children is enormous. Within 24-36 hours you have little brine shrimp swimming around in your Hatchery. You can watch them hatch and escape out of their eggs.

It's one of the funnest projects for kids to do. We highly recommend this kit. It is used by many schools and teachers to educate students.

This Hatchery contains everything except a soda bottle, an air pump and water that you will need to hatch Brine Shrimp Eggs.

  • Hatchery Cone Base
  • 3 FT. Air Line Tubing
  • 3 Hatch Mix Packets

Instructions for Hatchery:

1. Setting up the Hatchery
  • Take a clean 2 liter soda bottle and cut off the bottom of the bottle (right where it starts to curve inward)
  • Turn the bottle upside down and screw it into the Hatchery base
  • Attach one end of the airline tubing to the bottom of the base and the other end to an air pump. To prevent pump damage during a power failure use a check valve or place pump above water surface level
2. Hatching the eggs
  • Fill the bottle with 1 liter (about half full) with dechlorinated water
  • Plug in an air pump to start aeration
  • Add one packet of Hatch Mix (if you are mixing your own eggs and salt; use 1 tablespoon of eggs and 1 tablespoon of aquarium rock salt or synthetic sea salt)
  • Place a light source about 8 inches away from bottom of bottle
  • Temperature should be 80-82 degrees F; pH should be maintained above 8.0
  • Eggs should hatch within 24-36 hours

At this point your brine shrimp are extremely tiny, smaller than a pins head since they are still babies. To grow your brine shrimp onto adulthood, you must feed them. How long, or more accurately, to what size you raise your brine shrimp to, is up to you!
