Artemia Enrichment

Postby Cubic » 13 Oct 2012, 07:31

Artemia Nauplii (baby brine shrimp) are not particularly nutritious on their own but at around 36 hours old they begin to filter feed. This allows us to fill their stomachs with nutritions foods which in turn get fed to the jellyfish. This process is called bio encapsulation.

Below are some common artemia foods:

Selco ( Self Emulsified Lipid Concentrate)

Live Phytoplankton

AlgaMac
