 All  of  us  know  that  Brine  shrimps  are  healthy  live  food  for  both  freshwater  and  Marine  fishes.  They  are  collected  from  salt  lakes.  Are  there  any  salt  lakes  in  India  with  Brine  Shrimps.  Does  live  BS  available  in  India  from  nature  source  in  India.  Anybody  collected  from  any  source  in  India.  Or  all  the  BS  eggs  available  in  India  are  imported.  Or  else  we  have  to  get  them,  hatched  from  the  BS  eggs.  Â Very Happy

 i  would  recommend  you  to  hatch  brain  shrimp  eggs..  very  easy  job  just  a  spoon  of  brine  shrimp  eggs  in  a  fish  bowl.  and  add  10  glass  of  salt  water  and  one  glass  of  fresh  water  have  a  10:1  ratio  run  the  aerator  for  36  hours  and  then  remove  the  aerator  and  place  the  bowl  near  the  light  and  let  the  unhatched  eggs  get  settle  to  the  base  of  the  bowl  so  later  you  can  syphon  out  the  hatched  brine  shrimps..  with  a  aerator  tube  and  with  the  help  of  cloth  you  can  filter  them  and  you  can  give  some  fresh  water  dip  then  you  can  directly  drop  the  yummy  hatched  brain  shrimps  in  to  your  aquarium.

 Hi  Raja,
 
 As  far  as  I  know,  India  is  probably  one  of  the  biggest  exporters  of  brine  shrimp  eggs.  Most  of  the  stuff  goes  to  the  US,  is  canned  and  imported  into  India.  
 
 Wherever  you  find  flamigoes  in  India,  I  think  you  will  find  brine  shrimp.  It  has  a  very  low  shelf  life  (nutrition  value  keeps  reducing)  after  hatching.  Baby  Brine  Shrimp  (nauplii)  are  the  best  source  of  food  and  not  even  the  adult  artemia.

 Don't  you  mean  the  other  way  round?  I  use  about  1  tablespoon  of  salt  to  a  liter  of  tap  water  and  aerate  for  just  under  24  hours.

 Hi  Rahul,
 
 I  think  it  is  also  dependent  on  ambient  temperature.  Tirupur  is  quite  a  hot  place  and  the  eggs  took  about  18  hours  to  hatch.  But  during  cooler  days,  it  took  longer.
 
 A  higher  concentration  of  salt  does  help  the  eggs  hatch  faster,  I  think.

 Hi  Suraj
 
 what  does  flamigoes  means  "  salt  belt"  where  rock  solt  is  produced,  like  Tuticorin.  OR  the  flamingo  bird
 
 If  BS  eggs  are  exported  from  our  country  and  sold  back  to  us  in  premium  rates,  means  ???????
 
 Where  does  they  collect  those  eggs?  in  India
 
 I  Â have  read  in  a  book  that  Lake  uttah  in  US  produce  a  lot  of  BS  eggs
 
 regards

 Available.  But  the  hatch  rate  is  very  very  poor,  as  far  i  have  tried  and  heard  too.  Don't  know  why.  The  professionally  canned  ones  sound  expensive,  but  is  money's  worth,  IMO.

 yep  suraj  is  right   this  part  of  the  year  the  hatching  takes  very  long.and  i  use  lill  aged  water  for  successful  hatch  rate..  so  i  normally  use  salt  water  from  my  reef  tank  to  hatch  BS  and  my  hatch  rate  is  90%.  
 
 @raja
   yep  buddy  i  know  the  topic  is  all  about  (  BS  availability  in  Nature  in  India).  yep  you  can  get  adult  BS  in  india  and  what  about  the  nutrition  and  almost  80%  adult  BS  will  be  in  poor  shape  due  to  poor  transportation  and  can't  be  housed  for  too  long.  and  that's  why  i  said  i  recommend  you  to  hatch  your  own  BS.  and  like  suraj  said  the  baby  BS  contains  more  nutrition  than  the  adult  BS.  and  BS  eggs  do  have  a  shelf  life  of  4  to  5  years  a  minimum.

 According  to  the  weather  channel,  Trivandrum  is  cooler  than  Chennai  right  now...  And  the  salt  concentration  does  not  matter  that  much  so  long  as  it  is  in  an  acceptable  range.  I  use  1  tablespoon  because  I  pretty  much  get  RO  out  of  my  tap.  In  harder  water,  I  use  1  teaspoon  per  liter.
 
 And  how  exactly  do  you  measure  the  90%  hatch?  With  a  microscope  or  a  cytometer?  Wink
 
 
 Getting  back  to  the  topic  on  hand,  there  are  several  species  of  Artemia  found  in  India,  on  both  coasts.  The  problem  is  you  don't  find  them  in  large  numbers  in  many  places.  There  used  to  be  decent  numbers  in  the  salt  pans  near  Mulund  in  Bombay  (only  the  very  brave  or  the  masochistic  will  go  there  more  than  once,  though  Wink  ),  and  I'm  sure  there  are  large  numbers  in  the  Kutch  area.  I  believe  Tata  chemicals  used  to  collect  and  market  cysts  from  the  region.
