1. Parameters:

    Tap water pH 8
    Tap water kH 4

    1000 ml water
    25 g NaCl
    0,5 g Sodium bicarbonate
    1 g eggs

    Everyone seems to use different amounts of salt, which concentration should give the best hatching rate?

    Do you think the aeration is at a suitable level?

  2. I just use a table spoon loser salt id guess yours will hatch 36 hours.

  3. I use the same formula minus the bicarbonate. Eggs typically hatch in 24-36 hours. Make sure to use non-iodized salt.

  4. The usual recommendations are about 10 – 12 grams of unrefined rock salt per liter of water.

    Your aeration seems OK as the eggs are suspended in the solution. You may like to increase it a bit though.

    The eggs should hatch in 30 – 36 hrs at the temperature indicated. Try to feed the hatched brine shrimp within about 10 – 12 hours of hatching for maximal nutritional benefits.

    Happy fish keeping!

  5. I don’t worry about temp so much. You’re going to a lot of trouble! I use the Ziss hatchery with decapsulated eggs. Fill the container with regular tap water and 3 tbls aquarium salt.
