F4A and Hf:
I am very glad that yall "got into this".
Before I reentered fish keeping I researched the literature extensively concerning hatching and raising BBS.
I have tried all the "various hardware and processes" for cultivating them and all have been somewhat more than a "pain".
(and I really mean that I have tried hard: including but not limited to installing a tee and valves underneath a cone in the air line and removing the bbs from the bottom via turning off the air pump, closing the valve to the air pump and opening the valve to a line which transferred the bbs to a vessel)
I have at least more than $100 of hardware in the garage which I will never use again unless yall have something here which I have not thought of for harvesting the bbs.
Another process which I considered was placing a tank (like a 5 or 10 gallon hex with a heater and incandescent light and air diffusion) on the back porch, filling with tank water, adding salt and algae. some organic matter and let the sunlight generate "green water".
Then inducing the eggs, letting them hatch, waiting 24 days for the bs to begin reproduction and then cultivating the mature brine shrimp with a net.
Does anyone have any "pearls of wisdom" with respect to this post?
