DIY Brine Shrimp Hatchery

Stan & Debbie Hauter
Here is an inexpensive, easy to make DIY Brine Shrimp Hatchery which can be constructed in less than 20 minutes. It utilizes one (or more) 2 liter plastic soda bottles, an air pump and 3/16" plastic air hose.

The true beauty of this design (other than the fact that is so cheap) is that it is so easy to use. The Brine Shrimp can be hatched out, then drained out (no more tedious siphoning) into a Brine Shrimp net, leaving the unhatched eggs and egg casings behind. The Brine Shrimp can then be rinsed and put into either another Brine Shrimp Hatchery for further growth, or stored for feeding to your livestock.

Here is schematic of what the DIY Brine Shrimp Hatchery looks like.
