I have recently started hatching brine shrimp for my smaller fish,
mostly L ommata and pygmy sunfish. The fish are doing very well and
have begun stalking around the tank when I feed them. Fun to watch.

I am looking for a good source for brine shrimp eggs in larger
quantities (like 8 to 16 oz). Does anyone have a good ideas?

I have seen reports describing decapsulating brine shrimp eggs using
chlorine bleach.

Here's a link describing the process.

Does anyone have experience doing this?
