Make it easier for you to catch your fish food with the Hobby Set of Artemia Sieves. Your fish will be glad they won’t have to move a single fin.
The Hobby Set of Artemia Sieves helps you to collect artemia of different sizes after self-breeding. It consists of four plastic sieves with 120 µm, 300 µm, 560 µm, and 900 µm mesh size. These different mesh sizes contribute to a better skimming of artemia nauplii (larvae) and sorting of fresh food for feeding your fish. Besides artemia, it also catches copepods, eggs, larvae, and other organisms as well as helps to defrost frozen live food.
This way, the Hobby set of sieves ensures that live food species can be removed from the water and added to the aquarium without concern.
Artemia – also known as brine shrimp or sea monkeys - are small shrimp that live in salt lakes. Their eggs can survive even long periods of drought, and the nauplii only hatch when they contact with water again. Once that happens, brine shrimp hatch within 24 to 36 hours. Artemia is the ideal feed for your young fish. It’s rich in natural nutrients and promotes the development of coloration and the awakening of the natural hunting instincts of your fish.
Gone are the paper filters! This will help you skim unhatched eggs, eggshells, and the freshest artemia for your finned friends.
