- Put 120 grams of brine shrimp eggs.
- Incubate them at 25ºC with bubbling overnight.
- Stop bubbling and stand for 5-10min to separate hatched larvae (lower) from unhatched eggs and eggshells (upper).
- Collect only the hatched larvae from the bottom of the hatching tank.
- If you keep them in 2.2% salt solution with bubbling, they will survive several hours.
