It's not terribly critical, I've been using 1 tbsp per half liter (the package suggests 2 tbsp per quart), but I think that 1 tbsp per liter is sufficient. I've even heard of people hatching them in fresh water, but they don't live long if you do that. Mine live for about a day.

Yeah I think I use about a tbsp as well. To be honest I really don't pay attention... I just put some salt, a dash of baking soda, a pinch of eggs, water and turn on the bubbler.

I don't think it is.. it acts as a buffer so it can help you have a higher hatch rate.. but without it you'll still get a hatch.. just not as big.
