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. From $11.99
