Do you mean the decapsulated eggs? I don't think those ones can hatch.

Depends on the decap eggs if they can be hatched or not. I have seen some online that say they can't be hatched and I know that there are others that can. Need to find out first what type you are getting. If thet can be hatched then would use the same amount of salt as in hatching brine shrimp eggs, I believe. Can't recall how much, if have a chance will try to find the info. Just to note with decap eggs you can feed those directly. Most people who do use them soak them first tokeep them expanding too much when they are eaten.

'NT Labs Artemia Revolution'.

I got them from eBay, and here is the description:

"Brine shrimp eggs without shells. Brine Shrimps provide perfect, natural food for freshwater and marine aquarium fish, especially for bringing up fry. Artemia Revolution are decapsulated brine shrimp eggs with the shell removed so that no separation is required. Pure and free from bacteria, they have a guaranteed 95% hatch rate with an enhanced survival rate.

With more nutrition than dried systs, they are the best source of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids available. Extra long shelf life with 1,000,000 larvae guaranteed in each 30g pack. Without the natural buoyancy of their shells, the eggs need to be hatched in the NT Labs Brine Shrimp Hatcher."

Found the tank journal that I was thinking of that has some helpful info on hatching brune shrimp page 15 about half way down he talks about his methods and amounr of salt to use Lot's of Low Tech Angel Tanks (56K warning) - Page 15

Also the website brine shrimp direct has some info on hatching brine shrimp eggs. Would be interested to hear how these work for you.
