Some products may look very mundane - for instance check valves and t-pieces for air line. Indeed these products are cheap, yet required for raising brine shrimp. We have purchased many different types of these pieces in our quest for the best air line accessories and only list the best of these products. For instance our airline taps are high quality and made in Australia, very different to the typical air line taps available at aquariums, which tend to be designed with a screw down thread, making them annoying to use.

The Aquabuy hatcher is aimed as a stand alone solution to brine shrimp hatching. Designed as a single, double, triple and five bottle holder, it is laser cut from tough acrylic and designed around cheap shipping - it packs flat for ease of delivery as well as storage. Unlike other hatchers it is intended as a multiple day live food feeding solution. With 3+ bottles you can stagger your hatches to always have live food available for fish and fry.

The Aquabuy blog is intended as a source of information for both our own Aquabuy products as well as other fish and aquarium related topics. Our passion is fish food and it will reflect this.
