Brine shrimp hatch best in full salt water, so use marine salt at 1/2 cup per gallon.

You wasted 15 points on a question you didn't even think out clearly??? If you put the shrimp in your regular aquarium, the fish will EAT them. That means they die, unless you are going to dedicate yet another tank to brine shrimp. What exactly do you mean?

There should be instructions on the aquarium salt package for mixing it to the proper concentration for brine shrimp. What brand of salt is it?
Off the top of my head, I believe Doc Wellfish aquarium salt is 8 tablespoons per gallon for hatching brine shrimp.
