Brine Shrimp Hatchery Help!

So I am hatching brine shrimp for the first time and I put the salt in the hatchery and it sunk to the bottom! and it i put an air stone in because the airline tubing wouldn't go to the bottom. will the salt dissolve or it it ok it sunk to the bottom? it is sea salt non iodized.

Salt is denser then water and thus will sink...

The airline, when turned on, should dissolve the salt eventually unless you added too much (saturated the solution). To speed it up to could stir it 'till it dissolves.
