That's a major pain in the butt, I tried it before and it's kinda like a bacteria festival, they are a lot of work.

I wouldn't say its a major pain in the butt. Its really simple to me.
I did something like this
http://www.aquaria.4t.com/images/bri...p_hatchery.jpg
except they put the air tubing through the cap, I just got a 3/16" plastic tube (the one used for undergravel filter) and put it from the top. In moderate lighting, warm temperatures, the BBS will hatch in 18-24 hours. When its done, let the BBS settle by taking the airtubing out, the BBS will settle on the bottom and siphon out to avoid the egg shells.
Oh yeah, and I use about 3 teaspoon of non-iodized salt per liter

When he/she said Brine Shrimp, I was assuming they would be raised to adult size. If you just want to hatch some eggs, it's not to hard, but to take them to the adult stage is a little harder than I am willing to work when I can pick them up for .99 cents at the LFS.

Oh, I must have misread. My fault.
And I must agree, raising them to adults is too hard as I have tried as well. Much easier to buy from the LFS.
