Yuck, brine water XP

Okay, I just got through hatching maybe a million brine shrimp, I don't have a turkey bastor or a medicine dropper so I have to suck them brine out with this really long clear tube(think siphon tank cleaner tubing, only smaller) It works, but if I am not really careful I end up with a mouth full of brine shrimp and water, NOT A PLEASANT SENSATION XP

hmmm, lucky you LOL...I don't have a brine net, have just been putting small amounts of brine shrimp with their water in there...I feel like a bad betta owner I was at a loss as to how to seperate those tiny brine shrimp from their water so I just made sure there was a high concentration of them in the little bits of water I put in there, have been doing this since yesterday sigh* Any quick ideas for a brine net substitute?
