  1. Setting up the Hatchery:
    1. Take a 2-liter soda bottle and cut off the bottom of the bottle (right where it starts to curve inward).
    2. Turn the bottle upside down and screw it into the Hatchery base.
    3. Attach one end of the airline tubing to the bottom of the base and the other end to an air pump. To prevent pump damage during a power failure, use a check valve (found at your local pet/fish store) or place the pump above the water surface level.
  2. Hatching eggs:
    1. Fill the bottle with 1 liter (about 1/2 full) of dechlorinated water.
    2. Plug in the air pump to start aeration.
    3. Add one packet of Hatch Mix™ (if you are mixing your own eggs and salt; use a teaspoon of eggs and 1 tablespoon of aquarium rock salt or synthetic sea salt).
    4. Place a light source about 8 inches away from the bottom of the bottle.
    5. Temperature should be about 80-82 degrees F; pH should be maintained above 8.0.
    6. Eggs should hatch in 24-36 hours.
  3. Harvesting the baby brine shrimp:
    1. Unplug the air pump (keep the pump above the water surface).
    2. Wait approximately 5-10 minutes for babies to swim towards the light at the bottom of the bottle and for the shells to float to the top.
    3. Remove the airline tubing from the pump (keeping above the water surface).
    4. Slowly lower the tubing over a brine shrimp net to strain babies from water.
    5. Rinse babies under cool tap water to remove salt.
    6. Feed to your fish.
  4. Clean up:
    1. Dump hatching water from the bottle.
    2. Remove the bottle from the Hatchery.
    3. Clean the bottle and Hatchery with hot tap water and rinse well (you can also use a commercial aquarium cleaner).
