Continuous Hatch 'N Feeder 2-1/4" x 4-3/4" x 8-1/4" high
This does what it says. Like almost everyone else, I think it could benefit from an extra suction cup. I added one near the top with a zip tie. One other huge improvement would be a removable screen where the shrimp come out that could be replaced with a cork when changing water. Finally, I found i had to add 6 big spoons of salt and at least one big spoon of brine shrimp to get a good hatch and then after the first day you almost have to add in more salt (a big soon or two) and then more shrimp to continue getting a good hatch. The little trap door on the side where you feed in the shrimp and salt gets stuck sometimes. Buit i want to reiterate, it does what it says and the babies love it!

I have 2 continuous hatch n feed, since I am raising Angel fish fry. They work beautifully. I am very pleased with this product.

This brine shrimp hatchery really works.
I have 2 of the brine shrimp hatcheries. They work beautifully. I would recommend that you put some support under the hatchery and have it high enough so the top of your water is even with the water line on the hatchery. You can build up your aquarium gravel to the right level under the hatchery or set it on something high enough to raise it to the proper level. We have to have a supply of brine shrimp at all times for our seahorses.

Not good for tanks with moving water
I got this thing and set it up just like the instructions said to. however the way it is designed the suction cups don't hold it well in any sort of water movement, needless to say i lost a batch of snail due to cysts. but in a tank with out moving water such as another tank it would probly work fine.
