I have a quick question. At the moment i'm hatching bbs it has been 4 days they all hatch for the most part. When should I start the new batch ? I use 1 tbs of eggs and salt combo. Is there a time frame that I should start making a new batch ?

I believe you want to feed BBS to your fry almost immediately after the cysts hatch, because the older they are, the less nutritious they become. Adult brine shrimp are very empty nutritionally, unless you gut-load/enrich them prior to feeding.

I would think at some point, you would have to start feeding the BBS in your hatchery if you don't want them to starve.

Thank you I knew the younger the brine shrimp the better I just didn't know if there was a rule of thumb that after x amount of days the batch would be thrown out and a new one would be started. Would it be safe to say that ever 3 days start a new one ?
