From the producers of PhycoPure™, here's a simple way to deliver a healthy food favorite for your reef. Ready-to-feed Decap'd Brine decapsulated brine shrimp cysts deliver concentrated nutrition for corals and filter-feeding invertebrates. Used by state and federal hatcheries, aquariums and breeders nationwide in USA. Using AlgaGen's 95% decapsulated Brine Shrimp virtually eliminates the risk associated with the use of non-decapsulated brine shrimp cysts. Decapsulated Brine Shrimp are 300 - 400 um, and have approximately 10% hatch rate. Keep refrigerated.
AlgaGen has simplified the process of feeding brine shrimp to your small fish by performing the decapsulation process for you. The decapsulation process involves removing the indigestible outer shell of the brine shrimp cysts so you can feed either the hatched artemia or the unhatched egg without worrying about the health of your fish. To hatch simply rinse on a screen and add to your hatcher, aerate so the eggs are not settled on the bottom and target normal or slightly higher salinity. Hatching should occur within 24 hrs after which you can drain and rinse or enrich the newly hatched artemia. This product can also be used as a coral food when added directly to the tank and the eggs that are not captured by coral polyps will hatch out and become fish food.
Simply cut the tip of the bottle as you would with a tube of caulking, submerge the bottle into the tank, point and squeeze. You can target directly or squeeze into the powerhead for a broadcast feed. Our Coral Smoothie™ line is pasteurized for your tank’s safety and can sit on the shelf for one year. However, it needs to be refrigerated after opening.
