Hatching Instructions:
  1. Solution. Use filtered seawater or artificial salt water. Specific gravity range optimal from 1.01 to 1.02PH of 8. Avoid iodized table salts.
  2. Cysts should be kept in suspension, ideally with an air pump. Avoid over circulation - may damage artemia.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 before feeding.
