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.
