The jerky swimming motions of freshly hatched baby brine shrimp are known to trigger the feeding instinct of fish fry. Freshly hatched baby brine shrimp still contain their yolk sac and as such form a food rich in marine derived fatty acids.
Into a container add 1 quart (1 liter) of water, add 1 teaspoon of brine shrimp eggs, plug in air pump to start aeration, after 1 hour of rehydration add 2 tablespoons of aquarium salt and keep aeration on. Keep temperatures between 80-82 degrees F (26-28 degrees C), maintain a pH of 8.0 or above and eggs should hatch in 24-36 hours. After eggs hatch turn off aeration, direct a light source at the bottom, wait 5-10 minutes for shells to float to top and baby shrimp to swim to bottom. Remove airline at pump end. Keeping above water surface, slowly lower airline and siphon water into fine net. Rinse shrimp under fresh water and feed to fish.
