Set up:

  • Mix the salt with 2.5L of fresh water each in both of the buckets and leave to stand for 1 day.
  • Simply fill the bag of brine shrimp into one bucket.
  • Some of the eggs in the other bucket
  • Filtration or Aeration are not really needed.
  • You will need more salt for water changes.
  • Put both buckets on a window sill that gets a lot of light during the day or use a lamp.
  • Feed the adult artemia 5 drops of Hobby LiquiZell every 2 days
  • These artemia can be fed to fish right away

Hatching the eggs:

  • Depending on your room temperature it can take 1 to 3 days for the eggs to hatch.
  • Keep checking the container until you see lots of orange dots in the water
  • Siphon them into the empty bucket, making sure to avoid the egg shells at the surface
  • Start feeding the baby artemia after 3 days with Hobby LiquiZell - 4 drops
  • It takes 2 to 3 weeks to grow artemia to full size
  • If you use artemia a lot, you will need to buy more eggs and salt to hatch more
  • Captive artemia don't produce as many eggs as in the wild
