Shell Free E-Z Egg

E-Z EGG Hatching Brine Shrimp Eggs...without the shell!


Save Time and Labor.
Eliminate the use of caustic chemicals and bleach required for decapsulating.
Stop worrying about non-digestible shell and unhatched eggs in your aquarium.


Improve your yields! Brine Shrimp Direct's E-Z Eggs are decapsulated using 90% hatch-rate quality eggs under stringent temperature controlled-conditions and then preserved in an inert solution for medium-term storage under refrigeration. E-Z Egg eliminates the time required for separating live nauplii from unhatched eggs and shell. E-Z Egg product is completely digestible. Set up your hatching apparatus as you would with normal cysts, adding E-Z Egg at the rate of one to two measuring spoons (provided) or approximately two - four grams per liter of hatching solution. Aerate vigorously for 18 - 24 hours, siphon, rinse and feed! 

This product is best if used within 3 to 4 months. Keep refrigerated!

Due to high Summer temperatures we suggest 2 day shipping on all E-Z Egg orders and we do our best to avoid transit over the weekend. If you live within a two  day FedEx Ground transit time of Utah, e.g. Arizona, California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Idaho, etc., please call in your order so that we can override the expedited shipping requirement and ship using FedEx Ground Service. 1-801-782-4700. This item ships on Mondays and Tuesdays.

This product is also available in 5 kg. bulk quantities. Set up a recurring order. Never be without! Please call 1-801-782-4700 or email for wholesale pricing.

E-Z Egg can even be fed directly, without hatching. Simply rinse and feed 100% digestible E-Z Egg.

The hatch rate of E-Z Egg is over 80%. As a bonus, the unhatched portion provides an excellent, non-motile, digestible source of protein and lipids which can be fed together with the free-swimming baby brine shrimp. Hatching times for E-Z Egg vary and are temperature sensitive. At 75-80 degrees Fahrenheit, allow 18 - 22 hours for maximum yield. This product requires refrigeration to ensure shelf-life and viability. Not suitable for use in the Hatchery Dish. Stir contents periodically and keep tightly sealed to prevent separation or drying-out of product. Keep refrigerated!


"I received my order and let me tell you, I am thrilled."

I have dwarf seahorses and the (brine shrimp) egg shells were, well to say the least, a mess. Now I hatch and siphon and feed. No shell worries.

Thanks again,
