Brine shrimp need to hatch in salt water. I added 25g of coarse salt per 1L of water. Then I just stirred and waited until the salt dissolved. when it did, I poured the salt water into my brine shrimp hatchery, and put the hatchery in full sun. (just for the record, you can use a tank or any kind of container for this, not just a special hatchery... my dad just happened to have one handy! ) Most people recommend using an air pump and a heater, but I skipped out on that part. Brine shrimp need to be kept at the highest temperature possible. I put in about 1/8 tsp of brineshrimp eggs (you can buy them in bulk at pretty much any pet store), and waited. About 12hrs later, they hatched! But, that was two days ago... every time I see enough brine shrimp to feed my fish, I feed them... that's about every four hours! Even the cories love these things!

Hope that helped!
