  • Hatcher
  • Measuring Spoon
  • Syringe
  • Cleaning Brush
  • Airline tubing
This Hatcher can be installed in both Marine & Fresh water tanks. The Hatcher should be placed at a water level location using the suction cup (see Diagram).

Keep the water temperature between 77F-82F.
Connect airline tubing and air pump (STELLAR) to obtain aeration in the hatching chamber.
Dump 0.05oz-0.07oz salt into Salt & Egg Deposit.
Wait a few minutes for salt to dissolve in the water, then put 0.03oz brine shrimp eggs into the Salt & Egg Deposit; measuring spoons are included in the kit.

The eggs absorb water and go down into the Hatching Chamber.
They start hatching in about 18 to 24 hours.
Hatched sea monkeys move up and down in the chamber with the water flow.
Then they gather at the border surface between the marine water and the fresh water looking for slower water flow and preferable lighting.
Sea Monkeys will stay in the Distributing Chamber for a while to get used to the fresh water. Then finally they will step out into the fresh water tank.
The sequence will take about 24 to 30 hours.

Rinse the Hatcher at least once a week or before the use after the interval.
You may collect unfertilized eggs and shells at the water surface in the Hatcher.

Neat Gadget Product Review by SHANE (Posted on 2/11/10)

Comments: This unit installs inside your tank and has a line marked where the water level needs to come up to. You hook an air pump up to it (comes with airline) and place the unit where you like in your tank. Unit comes with a small spoon so you can scoop out eggs to place in the main hatching chamber. The air going to the unit keeps the eggs circulating and 24 hours later you can start to see the tiny brine shrimp hatch, leaving there egg shells behind which collect on the bottom of the hatching chamber, swimming up the hatching chamber to the outlet to the tank which is a small plastic disc with some holes in it which they swim out of and into your fishies mouth. I would agree with some others that they could have improves on the design a little better by adding more stability to the unit by adding at least one more suction cup holder, the unit only comes with one. However, that being said, this unit works as described and is a great addition to my tank. The fish love it and makes it easier for me to feed my fish live brine.

Tom Aquatics Hatch N Feeder Product Review by JAMES ROBERTSON (Posted on 2/13/12)

Comments: i am happy so far :)the pipe fish and seahorse s are loving it.

Hey it works! Product Review by AL TONGUIS (Posted on 12/23/10)

Comments: Might not be the best construction but at least it works! I would have made a few changes to construction and design. Like put 2 suction cups on there instead of one. But this thing does just what it says it will do. It will constantly pump out hatched out brine shrimp and they will swim out into your tank.

Good But Could improve Product Review by Expat Fish (Posted on 1/11/09)

Comments: It does exactly what it says it does. As others have pointed out, future improvements should include better suction to the glass (maybe two instead of one) possible outrigger points to keep it from flapping from side to side (currently it only has one suction and two outrigger points) to keep it vertical. Also the airline inlet is easy to come off. I notice the water flow seems to create a dead area at the bottom of the feeder and suggest more research be done to improve this which may also help the hatched shrimp swim into the escape tube. One last suggestion would be how to enrich the shrimp after hatching without polluting the hatching unit, I tried adding DT's Phytoplankton but it seems to collect and die off pretty quickly, maybe just add Selcon and see how that does?

Easy Hatcher Product Review by Joseph Sorge (Posted on 8/7/08)

Comments: The directions were clear and easy to understand and the little shrimp began appearing after a few hours. It works well in that regard. However, It only has one suction cup on the back and there are a couple plastic tabs that keep the body of the hatchery away from the glass. It also wouldn't stick to my glass. I had to attach it to a power head hanger that I had to us it in my aquarium
