Yes I understood that. That part was made very clear in the video. I watched the video multiple times, I understand that process. I am only questioning one very specific step that I find to be very important.
What I don't understand is how he got the contents of the jar.
These are his word "Now you already have the left over container that you use to hatch the brine shrimp eggs. It's the salt water. The left over eggs. The few shrimp that are left and the unhatched eggs at the bottom."
Did he let the brine shrimp sit in the jar for a week? If he is taking his shrimp from the tank and feeding his fish...how does he end up with that stuff in the jar?
So is he taking the pregnant shrimp from the buckets outside, putting them in this jar so they can hatch their eggs? So he would have to leave these shrimp in there for a specific amount of time.
Then you take that jar and put it into your giant holding bucket outside...
Why I am confused is because he said in the bucket is where the shrimp hatch and are born..so why would he have to take them out to put into this container?
That is all I am wondering...how does he end up with the contents of his jar. Maybe I am not paying attention to the video correctly but I do feel that it is not being explained.
This I find to be a very significant part of this...method in which is not explained. I know ZERO about brine shrimp hence the questions. I have looked up about them and found the obvious.
edit: I find this to be an important step because it is the contents of the jar that yo have to pour into the bucket.
You said: He's pouring in hatched baby brine shrimp - there's no waste.
Absolutely no waste. But aren't the baby brine shrimp in the bucket???
