Cipangopaludina leucythoides (Cleaner Snail)

September 5, 2017 killifish 0

The Cleaner Snail, Green Torpedo Snail, scientific name Cipangopaludina leucythoides, is a medium to large freshwater snail with gills and an operculum, an aquatic gastropod mollusk in the family Viviparidae. Our snails originate from Vietnam. When the soft parts of the snail are fully retracted, the operculum seals the aperture of the shell, providing some protection against drying out and predation.

Species of the genus Cipangopaludina can be identified by their relatively large globose shells and concentrically marked opercula. The shell is conical and thin but solid, with a sharp apex and relatively higher spire and distant body whorl. This species has a small and round umbilicus and the spire is produced at an angle of 65–80°. Cipangopaludina leucythoides exhibits light coloration as a juvenile and olive green or greenish brown as an adult. The inner coloration is orange. The surface of the shell is smooth wit

100g of Decapsulated Brine Shrimp Eggs – Free Shipping

August 31, 2017 killifish 0

Our decapsulated (non-hatching) brine shrimp eggs are without doubt one of the best quality eggs available on the market today. Also known as shell-free, decapsulated brine shrimp eggs are fed directly to a wide variety of tropical fish – providing excellent nutritional value without the necessity and down-time of hatching. The outer shell, the chorion, has been chemically removed or oxidized using a concentrated chlorine solution. This process leaves the thin hatching membrane surrounding the unhatched brine shrimp embryo intact. Decapsulated brine shrimp eggs have a higher energy value than live brine shrimp since the energy consumed in the hatching process is conserved. Lipids and amino acids are left intact. Simply rehydrate the decapsulated brine shrimp eggs for a few minutes in fresh water and feed directly to your fry or juveniles (this step is not necessary for adult fish). A small amount of decapsulated eggs goes a long way. Don’t overfeed.

Live Marine Copepods are supplied in 100 ml sealed plastic bags. Since we get all the live foods fresh once a week, it will take up to 5 (five) working days before we ship this product. Weekly orders are suggested to ensure freshness.

Copepods are a group of small crustaceans found in the sea and nearly every freshwater habitat. Some species are planktonic (drifting in sea waters), some are benthic (living on the ocean floor), and some continental species may live in limnoterrestrial habitats and other wet terrestrial places, such as swamps, under leaf fall in wet forests, bogs, springs, ephemeral ponds, and puddles, damp moss, or water-filled recesses (phytotelmata) of plants such as bromeliads and pitcher plants. Many live underground in marine and freshwater caves, sinkholes, or stream beds. Copepods are sometimes used as biodiversity indicators.

Live Mysis shrimps are extremely high in nutritional value for all medium to larger fresh and saltwater aquarium fish. Mysis shrimp induce an energetic feeding response in even finicky aquarium fish. Mysis shrimp boast naturally higher fatty acid profiles and Omega-3’s than enriched brine shrimp.

Mysids are small shrimp-like crustaceans with a heavy carapace covering their thorax and can grow to 1 cm in length. Adapted to life in estuaries, these tough, hardy crustaceans can withstand a wide range of salinity and temperatures. Mysidopsis species are omnivorous and cannibalistic, feeding on diatoms and small crustaceans such as copepods.

A Glassworm is a type of midge larvae called Chaoborus. They are approximately 10 mm in size. Glassworms are almost entirely transparent, except for pairs of black kidney-shaped structures in the front and the back of the body. These dots are the air sacs. They use these air sacs to migrate up and down in lakes. Glassworms breathe through the end of their abdomen and have two small eyes at the front of their bodies. Glassworms are very tolerant to bad water conditions, including chlorine.
