Product: Hobby 21700 Artemia hatchery
Artemia salina are crustaceans which are over 100 million years old and are to be found in salt lakes. They are one of the most interesting and resistant forms of life in existence. Aquarists have a high regard for the great nutritional value brine shrimps have for fish and their colour development. But the rearing and keeping of artemia is also an exciting and fascinating experience, and not only for children.
Instructions for use:
- Dissolve 3 slightly heaped teaspoons (15 grams) of Hobby Artemia Salt in half a Liter of water and pour into dish. Fill dish with water up to the „water level“ mark.
- Set the white divider disk into the middle and insert the sleve into the centre opening. Distribute 1-3 units (as required) of Hobby Artemia Eggs evenly around the outer circle and close lid.
- Keep lid in position ”closed“ to avoid unwanted ingress of light. At normal room temperature the artemia will hatch after 36 to 48 hours. The nauplia will be attracted by light and gravitate towards the centre sieve, from which they may comfortably be extracted and used.
