Ocean Nutrition Brine Shrimp Eggs Salt Pre Mix 50gm
Ready steady hatch! The all in one solution to start hatching nauplii. Forget scales and salt, we have prepared the perfect mix for you. Contains 47g of salts and 3g of Brine Shrimp Eggs from the Great Salt Lake. Simply add fresh water, aerate vigorously and you are ready to start hatching. Innovative Nitro Pak inner package assures a great hatch. Ideal for reef tanks and baby fish. Hatching instructions: Place the entire foil content in the 2 liter hatching vessel. Use tap water and pour the mix into the cone with air pump running. Make sure the water temperature is maintained between 26° - 29° during the incubation period. (Do not exceed 30°C, as improper temperature control is the main reason for a bad hatch).The air line should reach to the bottom of the hatching vessel to ensure vigorous and homogenous mixing. An air stone is not recommended. Make sure air keeps eggs in suspension. Eggs will hatch into very tiny, nearly microscopic “Nauplii” (babies) in 18 to 30 hours. You can harvest by removing the air tube and waiting two to five minutes for the orange nauplii to come to the bottom of the cone. Alternatively Nauplii are attracted by light and can be lured to a specific point by using a small flash light. After 24 hours stop aeration and wait 10 minutes until nauplii settle to the bottom. Empty shells will float at the surface. Siphon the nauplii on a sieve, rinse carefully with tap water and feed to your animals.
