JBL ArtemioMix is a ready-to-use mixture for the production of live food (brine shrimps) professionally, simply and as required for rearing young fish. The mixture consists of Artemia (brine shrimps) eggs and a special salt. The special salt contains microalgae as an initial food and a buffer system to maintain the optimum pH level.
nstructions for use:
Add 3 level measuring spoons of JBL ArtemioMix to 0.5 I tap water and aerate vigorously in an Artemia breeding set (JBL Artemio) or a transparent bottle. The Artemia nauplii will hatch after 24 – 36 hours. Depending on the use intended, they can now be sieved out or grown on in an aquarium.
Contents: 230 g for approx. 14 applications of 0.5 I
Instruction for use: JBL Artemio Pur Artemia eggs are bred in 2-3 per cent salt solution. This is most successful using JBL Artemio Sal. This special salt contains micro algae as an initial food and a buffer system for maintaining the optimum pH level. The JBL Artemio Set ensures successful breeding. In addition to a specially constructed culture container and an aerator pump, the set contains all the parts needed for easy and efficient breeding. Fill the container with approx. 0.5 l water and add 10 - 15 g salt and, as required, 1-3 dosage spoonfuls JBL Artemio Pur Artemia eggs. With vigorous aeration and a temperature of approx. 25°C, the nauplia will hatch in approx. 24 hours. At lower temperatures hatching is correspondingly slower. Aeration is vital, ensuring optimum hatching results and the provision of sufficient levels of oxygen. After hatching, aeration should be switched off. Within a few minutes the nauplii will collect an the floor of the container and the empty egg cases float to the surface. Depending on the intended use, the nauplii can either be sieved out or grown on in an aquarium.
