Description

Shrimpery - Educational Brine Shrimp Kit

Hatch Brine Shrimp. Just add water. An introductory 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 18-40 hours you have little brine shrimp swimming around in your Shrimpery. 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.

Kit contains:
  • Shrimpery with Lid
  • Collection Vial with Lid
  • 3 Hatch Mix Packets

Hatching Instructions:

1. Empty one pack of Hatch Mix into Shrimpery. Empty Hatch Mix
2. Using cold tap water fill Shrimpery to marker level and collector bottle to brim. Stir contents of Shrimpery until salt is no loner visible at the bottom. Fill Shrimpery
3. Cover collector bottle and Shrimpery. Water level should be higher than circular ledge in Shrimpery cover. (add water if necessary) Cover Shrimpery
4. Place the collector bottle (lid side down) into Shrimpery cover. Note: Tap top of collector bottle to release air bubbles that may be blocking hole in Collector Lid. Place Bottle
5. Within 18 to 40 hours (depending upon temperature) Brine Shrimp, naturally attracted to light will be seen swimming up into the collector Bottle. Only the Brine Shrimp swim up through the hole and are washed free of salt. The saltwater being heavier than the fresh water in the collection bottle stays behind. Watch Brine Shrimp

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. For the first 24 hours of life your brine shrimp will not require feeding as they are still relying on their egg sac, and have not fully developed their digestive system. Brine shrimp are non-selective filter feeders (meaning they're not fussy) and can be fed a wide range of foods, including but not limited to Liquid fry or similar fry food, yeast, whey, wheat flour, soybean powder, fish meal and egg yolk. The criteria for suitable foods are small, easily digestible particles which do not dissolve in water (for example, powdered milk won't work). Most importantly, do not over-feed them! In the small capacity of the soft drink bottle, it is very easy to foul up the water with excess feeding.

Depending on water conditions, foods and the strain of brine shrimp you are raising, it could take anywhere from a week or so to a month to reach adult size. How long, or more accurately, to what size you raise your brine shrimp to, is up to you!
