Once again, Ocean Nutrition is leading the innovation path by introducing a revolutionary concept: Instant Baby Brine Shrimp. Baby brine shrimp (nauplii of Artemia salina) are widely used in the aquarium hobby as food during the first stages of many delicate fishes and for invertebrates. To this date, there has been little or no innovation in the use of Baby Brine Shrimp in the hobby. The whole process of hatching brine shrimp cysts at home can be tedious and cumbersome. More often than not, due to variables such as improper storage, the hatching rate can be rather disappointing. The next challenge facing the hobbyist is synchronizing the hatching time with first feeding of the fry. Those days are over. Ocean Nutrition has developed the Instant Baby Brine Shrimp, a revolutionary off the shelf product that allows you to use brine shrimp when and where you need them. The product consists entirely of sterile newborn nauplii in an aqueous solution. The nauplii have a very good buoyancy, as if you are dealing with a live product !! The product can be kept and stored at room temperature. Once open, the product must be kept in the refrigerator. To avoid any quality issues make sure that the security strip is complete at the time of purchase. It contains a net weight of over 20g drain weight, or in excess of 1.5 million nauplii. Ideal for delicate small fish, fish fry and invertebrates. One bottle contains in excess of 1.5 million Artemia nauplii. Developed in collaboration with the Artemia Reference Center (of the Ghent University in Belgium). Does not cloud the water.
Reef Pulse, a high quality coral food powder, is an innovative blend of selected zooplankton and phytoplankton catering to the unique nutritional needs of many SPS and LPS coral species, tube worms and other omnivorous filter feeders. The wide particle size range from 5 to 400 micron makes it an ideal diet for a large variety of coral species (like Euphyllia, Acropora, Montipora, Clavularia, Goniopora, Zoanthids, Scolymia, Dendronephthya, Stylophora, Pocillopora, Seriatopora, Xenia, Anthelia, Echinopora, Alveopora, Leptastrea, Chalice,…). They will show faster growth and more intense coloration, when fed regularly with Reef Pulse. Reef Pulse can be used with 2 different feeding methods: target feeding or tank feeding, according to the following feeding instructions. Target feeding = Fill a recipient with 100ml of tank water and add, depending on coral density, ¼ to 1 teaspoon of Reef Pulse. Do not feed more than 1 teaspoon per 400 liter per day / Blend & stir well / Switch off filtration, skimmer and circulation during target feeding (to avoid immediate removal) / Disperse a cloud of concentrated food solution over the targeted corals (e.g. by using a pipet or syringe) / When the food is consumed, restart filtration, skimmer and circulation Tank feeding = Fill a recipient with 500ml of tank water and add, depending on coral density, ¼ to 1 teaspoon of Reef Pulse per 400 liter of tank water. Do not feed more than 1 teaspoon per 400 liter per day. / Blend & stir well / Switch off filtration and skimmer (to avoid immediate removal) / Add the food solution to the aquarium, circulation pumps will disperse the food / Restart filtration and skimmer +/- 10 to 15 minutes later (depending on how fast the food is consumed)
