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.
Indigenous to mud flats along coastal areas around the USA and Mexico, Glycera dibranchiata worms are very hardy creatures known for their ability to thrive in very little oxygen thanks to their high tolerance for all sorts of salinity environments. The good news is that Mother Nature will do most of the work of propagating these slithering creatures for you. The not-so-good news is that you will need to become a matchmaker by pairing larvae from a stagnant pond with vegetation in a contained environment that is known to be really smelly once it’s established. There’s more good news, however. Once they’ve morphed from larvae to worms, you’ll have no problem catching them, as these creatures are really bad swimmers.
Fill the container you’ve selected with water and then sink the aquatic pump into the tank. If the pump you’re installing has suckers, attach them to the side of the container to keep it from moving around
