It's very good at what it does. You can DIY your own hatchery but if you're interested in an upgrade to a more solid and easily useable one that will last you, this is the one to go for. Highly recommend it. Easy to use, easy to wash.
I bought a second one so I can alternate days and have a constant supply of hatched brine shrimp to feed my fish.
Pretty much as the title says- If you have the money, these hatcheries are well worth making the switch from DIY IMO.
They don't look tacky.
The shape lends itself to keep the eggs rolling once air is pumped in.
The product is well made of what feels like good quality materials.
It is simple to set up, use & clean.
Harvesting bbs is super easy- twist the dial to open the flow & back again to close it.
Pair this with a couple of different sizes of sieve (depending on the fish you keep) & you have a really simple yet easy, efficient way of hatching, harvesting & feed bbs to a range of different fish sizes & ages.
This is a well-designed hatchery and worth the money if you regularly hatch brine shrimp.
As for instructions, it's pretty self-explanatory from looking at the pics on the box, and nothing you can't find online. It's just a well-designed vessel for something that can be DIYed with a lot more hassle and less success.
The Fish Room is an amazing store & this is a great product, but please don't hang it from the side of your tank, especially not with a small tank.
Like an idiot, I watched some YouTube videos and did exactly that, and it busted my 60L tank overnight and killed the vast majority of my fry. Basic physics I guess, it's heavy when filled, but it's the busy season and I wasn't thinking. Hope someone can learn from my mistake.
I got it for my fry. I am a first time breeder for Betta. Easy to use. Looks good. When I want to get the brine shrimp out I hang it off my tank then put it back on it stand.
Love the Ziss Brine Shrimp Blender. Great and simple to use. Had to get another as a spare.
