    I get my eggs from Brine Shrimp Direct .
    Just ordered 2lbs of the 90% hatch to save $10 on shipping .
    Been using the BSD eggs for about 4 years now .
    1 lb. used to last a year in my fridge but now I go through a pound in about 2 months .
    I feed all my breeders and adults BBS daily along with my ram fry and freshwater pipe fish ..
    They hatch quick and easy for me .No special tricks .

    Same for me. I have the feeling you've never hatched bbs before, so while you're shopping I suggest getting a couple of hatcheries. They have one that uses a 2 liter bottle and a very small air pump. I rotate hatches every 1 1/2 - 2 days... https://www.brineshrimpdirect.com/hatching-kit

    You will need a sieve also !
    I HIGHLY recommend the one BSD sells .
    Get 2 so you have one for back up !
    I rinse mine after every use and store it in tap water to keep it from drying and clogging up ..

    Tom's probably found a good product there, but I still strain them through a handkerchief like i learned to do as a kid.

    I have a 120g reef tank so I use full blown marine salt in my hatching set ups also .
    Got a barrel sitting next to the other 3 waters I keep prepped [Tap 350 TDS ,RO 20TDS ,and RO/DI 0 TDS] so it is just a matter of ease for me .
    I use 1 pint per hatch for about 1tsp of eggs.. That feeds a lot of fish for me ..
