Micro Artemia Cysts are very small, fast-hatching cysts. Under optimal conditions, hatching will be completed within 16-18 hours to obtain optimal prey size. Hatching 1 gram of Micro Artemia Cysts results in more than 300 000 nauplii. The time needed for 95% of the cysts to hatch out is approximately 18 hours.
The Micro Artemia Instar I nauplii naturally contain more than 15 mg/g dry weight of highly unsaturated fatty acids (mainly EPA). Another benefit of this product is that the instar I nauplii have a lenght of +/- 430 µm, which is ideal for first feeding of small and/or delicate fish larvae.
