and yes, I should have titled it brine shrimp hatchery.. but I don't know where my mind was at
ok, no comments so far so I will at least post observations. I think the manufacturer is 'tom' or something. Quality is ok, but typical chinese crap. There is a partition at the top which is removable, but the plastic seam that is there is not too good. However, it is 'tight' and will serve whatever purpose it has to.
I installed this last night according to directions. It isn't too hard, but the little partition between the hatching chamber and the egg/salt addition chamber is a little difficult to remove. Other than that, I added the salt and allowed the air from the pump to mix it in, then added the brine shrimp eggs. Everything seems to be working according to design, as of this morning (may 24) the eggs are all at the bottom. What is amazing is that the line of demarcation between the salt and freshwater is plainly visible. The buggers should hatch tomorrow most likely. They will gravitate towards the light after hatching, but they do not give any guidelines as to how long that will take. It depends on individual tank conditions.
Are these things visible to the naked eye?
