In my boredom tonite I was surfing on web and saw someone that hatched bbs with reg water no salt and just using baking soda? Did anyone here ever try it they say the bbs lives longer in the freshwater because no osmotic shock his ph was 7.0 and he put 3/4 gal of water and 2 tablespoons of baking soda. I use salt

I did it this batch no salt the yield seems to be close to the same just using my eyes. Also did not keep at 80 degrees.i feed night and morning from batch we will see how they last through the night if they last l will put them on some insulation and see if I can raise water temp some.hatching at about 70-72 right now
