Solution. Use filtered seawater or artificial
salt water. Specific gravity range optimal from
1.01 to 1.02PH of 8. Avoid iodized table salts.
Cysts should be kept in suspension, ideally with
an air pump. Avoid over circulation - may damage
Artemia hatch quicker in natural light. After
hatching, light should be eliminated except at
the bottom of the tank. This keeps artemia
hearty by encouraging them to swim. Water
temperature is to be maintained between 28 C -
30 C. Optimal hatching time is 20-24 hours.
To harvest remove circulation air pump, cover
and wait 10 - 15 minutes before scooping nauplii
from bottom of tank with tube or hose. After
harvesting the nauplii, rinse with fresh water
