I have type of artemia
1) with salt premixed
2) just the egg no salt.
I normally add the artemia egg in the breeder and then throw in the hatched brine shrimps into my tank for the fish to eat.
My question is can i throw the egg straight into the marine tank so they can hatch and breed and make them fish food.. or i have to go into a separate breeding and then feeding.
Just trying to find a simpler way to get things done.

I'm not sure this is a good idea.
First the eggs swell when they hatch. This could be an issue for any fish that eats the eggs. The egg cases are not digestible. No big issue in a large fish, but might be for a small one.
Second, you have all those shells in the tank, and they kind of make an unsightly mess.
Eggs are light and would get sucked up by the filtration system.

no, unjatched eggs r source of viral and bacterial infections. hatch separately, that too, after decapsulating,
fr what fishes your feeding artemia?

the egg shell can kill fishes... never do that. the best thing to do is make the hatcher on top of the tank and then once hatched, just open the ball valve to let the fish feed on baby shrimps....
