I just spent about a half hour out in the back yard sucking these out of a trash can lid with an eyedropper, depositing them into a white bowl that allowed me to separate most of the sediment out of the water, and then feeding them to my fish.

I think maybe I am not doing this in the most efficient manner possible.  How do you guys do this?

Whoa. Where did I put all my stuff?

Purchase a small baby brine shrimp net from your local pet/aquarium shop. Just scoop the larvae up with the net and rinse under the tap and into the tank. I t doesn't complicate things that way  happy

Fine mesh nets are the best. Just be careful you don't let too many hatch. You don't want to be itchy or worse. Smiley
