Hi Yamila,

The E3 medium works well.  It is made as follows:
14.61g NaCl/l
0.63 g KCl/l
2.43 g CaCl2/l
4.07 g MgSO4/l

Put in a petri dish with 50 eggs in an incubator at 28 degrees C.  
Add methylene blue at 2-4mg/l to keep the fungus and bacteria 
under control.  This works very well but should still be replaced by 
removing the old with a pipette and replacing with fresh every 
couple of days. Start feeding day 3 or 4.  

Good luck.
