✅ Storing Brine Shrimp Eggs:
Before we begin, you need to start with viable, properly stored eggs. All brine shrimp eggs need to be stored as follows:
· In a tightly sealed container;
· free from moisture; and
· In a cool environment at or below 50°F. (Refrigeration is ideal for short term storage, i.e., less than three to four weeks. For longer term storage, eggs are best kept at or below freezing.)
We recommend that upon receiving your eggs, divide them into an amount that will be consumed within three to four weeks and store this amount in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator; the remainder should be stored, also in a tightly sealed container, in the freezer. Keep in mind that freezing can lower metabolic activity and delay hatch-out. We suggest removing egg from the freezer one day in advance of using it to allow the embryos to acclimate.
The above storage guidelines apply to all brine shrimp eggs, whether in opened or unopened tins.
✅ Hatching Method:
Prepare hatching solution from non-iodized salt (aquarium salt) or diluted seawater to 20-33 ppt.
Incubate and aerate cysts in a conical shaped container with cyst to solution.
Provide hatching tank with natural or artificial light and maintain constant temperature of 28 to 31 deg C, atop aeration and remove fresh nauplii after 24 to 36 hrs
Note: if cysts are frozen or held in cold storage while in inventory, allow cysts to acclimate at room temperature for 12-24 hrs before attempting to hatch.
✅ Incubation Period:
Generally, the optimum incubation time is 24 hours. Egg which has been properly stored for more than 2-3 months may require additional incubation time — up to 30-36 hours. Oftentimes, eggs will hatch in as few as 18 hours.
