Does this shrimp hatchery work?

I saw this online and it looks so easy, small and simple, but does it work? Will they reproduce or will it hatch them once and then they'll die off after a little while?

Thanks a bunch!

i don't see why they shouldn't make it.
i had a little hatchery thing,called "sea monkeys"
did the same thing,execpt over here they put them in
funky little castles and stuff.i found that they re-produced ok,
it was me that got cheesed off with it,
and fed them all to the fish in one go.

Thanks, I think I'll give it a try. My boyfriend loves feeding my fish live food (hehe, food that runs away), but I don't have enough fish to really go out and buy a bag of brine shrimp, as it's waaay too much for them. So 1/2 of them end up dying in the bag. Hopefully I've found a more sustaining way :D

If you do get it, please post with how it worked out for you. Looks like something I might be interested in getting so I'd like to hear first hand testimony.

I'm getting a used 55G this week, and That Fish Place has free shipping on orders over $100 right now (I'm ordering a bunch of stuff for other fish-geek friends), so I'm just waiting to get the tank (so I know what other fun stuff I want) and then I'll order it! I'll definitely post how it goes, I really hope it does!
