What are the optimal conditions for hatching Ocean Nutrition artemia cysts?
Artemia cysts should be stored in cool dry place prior and after opening the packaging. Standard guidelines are: * Maximum 2 gram of dry cysts per liter, * pH > 8, * Salinity between 25 and 35 gram per liter, * A lot of aeration and light, * Water temperature between 26 and 29 °C (do not exceed 30 °C°). It is important to keep the water properly buffered in order to maintain a high pH. Make sure that all equipment is properly cleaned to increase your chances of success.
