    This is how I seperate them.

    From page one of this topic:

    The units are two items - One is the incubator which is just a base or holder for a upside down soda bottle with a hole in the bottom that connects to the air/water tube. The other is the collection box which is normally a incubator also, but I don't use it to incubate, just seperate.

    Yes, they have more oil sacks in them when they first hatch, so they have more protein. I'm not sure how long after they hatch.

    This is the results after 24 hours from this second batch.

    I think 1/2 teaspoon is way too much. I will put 1/4 teaspoon next time.
    Only 1/4 of the eggs hatched so far and some are still inthe process of hatching. I collected alot of baby brine shrimp with my method just now. I used the water from the fry tank again, and placed it on top of the collector, but this time witha LED flashlight pointed into it for only 15 mins and got this many. They love the light!

    I am going to place the water from the collector back into the incubator and let more hatch and repeat tommorow.

    This is just to give you a idea on how many more hatched that I even did not collect yet. And many more eggs yet have to hatch.

    Yeah Ill have to get one of each of those from bigals and give it a try.

    Im getting good results from the pickel jar, but it seems I end up with dead spots where the eggs collect stop and jsut die becuase of lack of oxygen and movement. Wow thats alot of BBS - How many fish are you feeding BBS?

    I only have 18 babys.

    So this is plenty for them, I let two vials full last night and they finished them in less than 1 hour. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Maylandi: I have that problem too-it seems to be due to inadequate aeration. I added in a more powerful pump yesterday and wow it works well.

    Hi,

    It will also help if you tip the jar as that creates a better circular flow from the air. I wish I could show you the 3 tsps worth of eggs I hatch daily -- comes out to about 2 tbsp of solid bbs!

    Siphoning the baby brine out of the soda bottle is very simple too. I just shut off the air. Let the hatched eggs float to the top, and put my LED flashlight on the bottom where they all collect.
    I then siphon them out of the same tube I use the airpump on, into the Shrimpery, the Black Box.
    If some of the eggs don't float to the top inthe incubator once you shut off the air, I heard you can add more salt to make them rise to the top. I never tried it though, cause I was afriad to add too much and kill the baby brine shrimp.
