Artemia Cysts Hatching Procedure
Salinity - 20 - 30 parts per thousand (ppt) salt solution or approximately 1-2 tablespoons of rock salt per quart (or liter) of water. This equates to around 1.015-1.020 specific gravity. A 20% (or around 1/2 teaspoon per quart) concentration of Epson salt or magnesium sulfate can be added to further buffer the hatching solution.
Optimum temperature for a 24 hour complete hatch 26-28° C. Lowering the temperature would result in a longer hatching time. Do not exceed 30°C.
Illumination is necessary to trigger the hatching mechanism within the embryo within the first few hours of incubation. Maintaining a light source during the entire incubation period is recommended to obtain optimum hatch results and for temperature control.
Constant aeration is also necessary to provide sufficient oxygen levels for the cysts to metabolize and hatch. A minimum of 3 parts per million dissolved oxygen during the incubation is recommended. Strong aeration will not damage or hurt the brine shrimp cysts or nauplii.
A starting pH of 8.0 or higher is recommended. If pH drops below 7.5 during incubation, add a teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate or a pH buffer to raise it above 8.0.
2 grams per quart or approximately one level tablespoon of cysts per quart is recommended. A higher stocking density will result in a lower % hatch.
Flat bottom hatching vessels should be avoided. Cone or "V" bottomed containers are best to insure that the cysts remain in suspension during hatching. Be sure to thoroughly wash the hatching cone with soap and water and allow to air dry between uses.
How to harvest the baby brine shrimp?
To harvest the baby brine shrimp or nauplii, simply shut off the air and wait a few minutes for the shells and nauplii to separate. The shells will float to the surface and the live nauplii will go to the bottom of the cone towards the light source.
Once separated, the nauplii can be siphoned from the bottom or drained from the bottom of the cone through the air tubing.
Is this Product "DECAPSULATED"?
This is not Decapsulated artemia. This comes with outer shell. Need to undergo above hatching and separation of nauplii process to feed fries. so cant be feed directly to the fries.

Jagadesh Good quality Good quality eggs, delivered in 3 days and packing is okay!!! These shrimps are very tiny and hard to see. So I do not know the hatching percentage but its good. Value for money.
Balamurali Nice product Totally loved it. Achieved expected result. My angel and discus fries loved it.
Lalith Kumar Fair amount for the price Small tea spoon produced tons and tons of bbs. I tought 100gms will be less but its seriously very much sufficient for small hobby breeders.
Tarun Reddy Four starts Mostly hatched...
Adarsh Nair Great hatch rate First time trying bbs, great hatch rate and just 1 or 2 grams is enough for 1000's of fries. Cheap too, compared to my fish stores around my area.
Madhur Lathi Very nice This was my first time trying to grow brine shrimp and feeding them to baby guppies.
Rajendiran G Cheap and Beast - BBS I was using OSI Brine Shrimps for 5 years and am just trying this product for first time. Had great hatching results same like OSI. Pros: hatching % is good, economy, more quantity, good support from the team. Cons: Ziplock packing was not upto the mark. Highly recommended product.
Jyoti Prakash #Super blood orange color naupli 3 days for delivery, packing was okay, 28 hrs for fully hatching, good hatch rate, nauplie are live for more than 2 days in same hatchery, super blood orange color which is attractive for fries , shrimps , live barriers etc
Prakash Salian All 5 stars worth it Had a doubt when I ordered it considering the various reviews about the eggs hatching rate. Was pleasantly surprised to get the promised or higher hatching rate. Been harvesting the same culture for the last 2 days , will try for another 2 days. Hope the culture stays alive.
Overall a very good product at the price.
Gopal Krishnan Worth for money Before buying I checked price in many places both online and local pet stores in Bangalore. Its cheap here nearly 1/2 the market price. So feared about hatch rate but finally I had a great hatching rate, and I hope I can use it for more than a year.
Mayur Best Quality product with reasonable price it was my first time to deal with microworms.in and i loved their service . i ordered a pack of artemia eggs for hatching and they shipped it very fast with very good packaging and i received the product within 3 days. The product i received has very high quality and almost 90% hatching rate. i will recommend microworms.in to every aquarium hobbyist. microworms.in has very quick customer service also.
Keep it up guys...
