So I want to start hatching baby brine shrimp as this is what all my fish eat (the frozen kind right now)

I was looking at Brine Shrimp Direct.

What is the difference between these 2 kits and will both work very well?
I was just wondering why one is only $11 and one was $27.

I have never hatched Baby Brine Shrimp, so I was thinking this was a good spot to check up on them.

Please let me know if you guys have used or know anyone that has used one of these kits from Brine Shrimp Direct.

why would you get a hatching kit while all you need to do is to put the brine shrimp eggs in a battle of salt water and put an air tube in it for water movement and put it in a place where it can get enough light, and the more warm it is the eggs hatch faster

I spent weeks fiddling around trying to make something better. In the end I use the SF hatcheries. It has a 2ltr bottle mount (similar to your link) and a black box seperator

IMO, the 2 work together very well and you can feed bbs with no fear of unhatched eggs or empty shells getting in.
just my opinion of course, but for $20 to $30 I can't find or make better.
also, still my opinion, the bagged eggs with salt already added are terrible. Buy the eggs in the glass vial.
