Getting Started

For growing Brine Shrimp in Aquarium, follow the steps below to achieve the best results.

Step 1 - Water treatment 

  1. Pour 0.8 Quarts / 750 Milliliters of bottled water into a bowl.
  2. Add the sachet of the water purifier and steer thoroughly until the water is clear.
  3. Pour the water into the Brine Shrimp Aquarium.
  4. Add additional 0.8 Quarts / 750 Milliliters of bottled water and close the lid of the Brine Shrimp aquarium, wait for 24 hours.

Step 2 - Adding Seatures™ eggs 

  1. Add the Seatures™ eggs to the tank and steer gently
  2. Place the Seatures tank in a warm place to expedite the hatching process.
  3. A temperature of 82°F (28°C) is optimal for the hatching phase. 

Step 3 - Hatching

  1. The Brine Shrimp eggs will gradually hatch within 24- 48 hours; some may hatch within 72 hours. Keeping the aquarium in a warm place will expedite the hatching of the eggs.
  2. Hatched Brine Shrimp eggs will float and should be filtered out of the water using a small net.

Step 4 - Feeding 

  1.  Brine Shrimp require a tiny quantity of food, starting from the 3rd day of hatching (watch video)
  2.  Add a few grains of the supplied Seatures™ food sachet every 2-3 days to keep them healthy and happy; overfeeding will harm them.
  3. As a rule of thumb, clear water is an excellent sign to feed them, while cloudy water means that there's still food for them to eat.

 Step 5 - Keeping your Seatures Healthy and Happy

  1.  Keep the Brine Shrimp Aquarium in a ventilated room, away from direct sun or heating sources.
  2. Add bottled water occasionally to keep the water level high as water vaporizes with time. Remember that Brine Shrimp live in a salty environment, so add 1 2/3 tablespoons of salt to every quart of bottled water
  3. For best results, aerate the water every two to three days a week using a pipette (watch video)
  4. Adding more Brine Shrimp to the aquarium is highly recommended for keeping the life cycle active and dynamic (watch video
