More work than worth.
posted 7 years ago
When I first saw this,I thought that it would be perfect for what I needed.The whole idea was great-suctions in your tank/Brine shrimp hatch/go through "fresh Water" for rinsing ,and then swim out of a release area right into the mouths of hungry fish.
Well things didn't quite work out so easy,at least for me. The biggest problem was that after preparing this all,or the actual hatching of shrimp occurred,it seemed like the suction cups would lose grip,let loose,and you'd not only have salt & brine shrimp,but also the empty egg shells floating all around the main tank.
It made things so much harder than what you'd think.
Pros: the idea behind it is good
Cons: the darn thing always let go in my tank

Growing Brine Shrimp
posted 8 years ago
Growing brine shrimp sounds very fun and interesting although it is extremely difficult to do. I do not recomend this produst to anyone who has little patience. But if you succeed, this may be a great way for a fish owner to save money because they wont always be buying feeders for their tank.
Pros: very fun
Cons: sometimes not worth it

Not as great as it looks.

This was alright product. The thing is that the suction cup didn't always hold to the tank and the brine shrimp that did hatch couldn't always escape. Because they had to know to go all the way up the tube and go out. Most just kinda hung out in the container once they were hatched. Had this thing tip over twice in the tank and the saltwater, brine shrimp eggs and all went directly into the fish tank. Not a good situation. I will not be recommending this to people who want an "easy" method of feeding brine shrimp to their pets.
Pros: hatched the shrimp
Cons: they couldn't escape very well

Brine shrimp hatching
posted 6 years ago
The hatchery really works, however I have had some problems ( and talked with others who also have). Many manufacturers these days are trying to make air pumps stronger and stronger for better circulation. The hatchery is one instance where a good, but not overly strong, pump is needed. Maybe the manufacturers will incorporate one in the future. Also, people seem to like all in one kits, without saying... Oh, this is a good deal, but look at all the other stuff I need to purchase.
Pros: Easy to hatch brine shrimp
Cons: Perhaps small air pump could be provided
