Brine Shrimp Eggs

Does anybody have a suggestion of where to buy Brine Shrimp Eggs? I could not find them at PetSmart, or my local fish stores. They all suggested buying Sea Monkeys from Toys-R-Us. I also looked online and found several places that sell them for reasonable prices, but the shipping and handling charges are very high. Any suggestions?

I get mine for Thatfishplace... I just go to their store. I don't think the shipping is much on their website. I'll check... on second.

Never mind.. shipping will be 8.99 :P

You might want to check here for things with free shipping.

Ok, thanks! Yeah I've found several places that sell the cheap 2 or 3 dollar vials of eggs, but shipping is 5 dollars or more. Thanks for the tip!

Yea that's true the brine shrimp they sell as "sea monkeys" probably doesn't have a great hatching rate since they are just for kids to look at really not for being relied on as a fry food. You can find good quality ones on e-bay I saw some 90% hatch rates awhile ago. But they get more and more expensive it seems as the hatch rate increases and the amount you want increases. Sometimes pet stores will special order the big cans depending on the chain. Mine said they would...but it would be like a big 50 dollar can lol I don't need that much yet. So I said n/m for now.

PS if you are interested in microworms for fry as well I just ordered some starter cultures off e-bay very very cheap! You could go with those as well
