raise brine shrimp in a grow out tank
Hey guys, just built a new brine shrimp raise out / grow system. I did alot of research and built this simple system for under $100. Been using it only 3 weeks but seems to be working great. You can see it on my seahorse page
My H check it out. I know I was getting tired of buying adult brine shrimp and the messing grow out jars and tubs. This is cleaner, alot less effort and I luv it!!!!!
If enough people get interested and email me email@example.com then I will draw up plans and details so everyone can build a system like this and save money.
So you need to get brine shrimp, leave them in a jar for a while....fed them to the fish and put that stuff in a tub?
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???
Like many breeders, he hatches baby brine shrimp in gallon jars to feed fry. Rather than toss them, the left overs (baby brine shrimp, egg carcasses, unhatched eggs, etc.) go outside in the tubs to grow up to feed adult fish.
So then he has to separate the brine shrimp eggs into the jar? That must take some time...
Make sense now?
I read the comments and he said he mostly only feeds them spirulina when he brings them inside. Outside they mostly eat the algae that grows from the morning sun.
As for feeding, in addition to algae, brewers yeast works as well as http://www.amazon.com/Ocean-Star-International-Artemia-Brine/dp/B000255P6M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1332386129&sr=8-1.
