Home Fish Hatchery

May 1, 2009

GEOSPACE INTERNATIONAL offers Easy-Hatch, a home aquarium that accommodates fish embryos that hatch live Killifish and help them grow into two inch colorful tropical fish, in lively colors and shapes. The plastic aquarium is eight by 7.5 by 5.5 inches. The aquarium contains a certificate that has a special number code. Consumers who buy the aquarium go to the Geospace website and enter the code, which enables them to order the dormant eggs for only the shipping cost.

The Easy-hatch soil contains dormant Killifish eggs. They are placed in the hatching compartment with bottled water at 75 degrees. Sea salt and a pinch of dried brine shrimp eggs are placed in a separate dish with bottled or filtered water. Within three days, the brine shrimp hatch, to be used as feed for the Killifish eggs. Four or more of the eggs then rehydrate and hatch.

At first they are tiny, but within two to three months, they are fully grown to about two inches. The secret to this rehydration is the fact that, in nature, Killifish survive in seasonal ponds that dry out. When the ponds dry, the eggs go dormant and hatch when seasonal rains return.

Easy-Hatch is designed for ages six and up. The minimum order is at least six units of this product, and the company requires a typical minimum of $200, which can include any of the Geospace products. The wholesale cost of Easy-Hatch is $10. The suggested retail price is $19.99.
