The JBL ArtemioSet + is a complete live feed rearing kit, consisting of a breeding stage and aerator pump that allows Artemia nauplii to be incubated within 24-48 hours. For many young animals, Artemia nauplii are just small enough to be eaten. Freshly hatched Artemia nauplii are an indispensable live food for successful and low-loss fish farming. With Artemia eggs, such as JBL ArtemioPur (sold separately), these nauplii can be easily incubated as needed.
The animal protein share helps them to optimal growth and an intact immune system. But picky fish, as well as those from wild-catching areas can feed under certain circumstances only - live food is here the best choice. Very small juvenile fish must first be fed with protozoa (paramecium) or JBL NobilFluid until they are large enough to handle Artemia nauplii. JBL ArtemioPur is placed in a 2-3% culture solution prepared with a special salt such as JBL ArtemioSal (sold separately) and aerated well. The Artemia nauplii then hatch after 24-48 hours and can be fed to the fry or raised in a rearing tank.
In this specially designed funnel-shaped incubator, Artemia nauplii are efficiently and efficiently incubated with vigorous aeration. The funnel shape of the incubator ensures that no eggs can settle in dead corners and an optimal hatching result is achieved. The complete set contains all the parts necessary for the easy breeding of nauplii:
Modern funnel-shaped breeding container with dome lid and stand (wall mounting possible.) Collecting container and sieve for separating the nauplii from salty breeding water. Reliable diffuser pump and air hose for immediate use.
The construction of the funnel as an incubator with an integrated drain valve in a specially made stand makes the removal of hatched Artemia nauplii easy and convenient. The shape of the incubator as a funnel together with the powerful ventilation allows a maximum hatching rate of the nauplii and thus the most effective feeding of the juvenile fish.
The complete set can be easily extended by attaching additional incubators with a stand (JBL Artemio 1). The sophisticated design of the container lid allows the operation of many extensions with only one air pump. By time-delayed preparation of several incubator containers, a complete supply of sensitive juveniles with daily live food is possible.
JBL ArtemioPur Artemia eggs are incubated in a 2-3% saline solution. This is best done with JBL ArtemioSal (sold separately). This special salt contains microalgae as an initial food and a buffer system to maintain the optimal pH. The best way to hatch in the JBL ArtemioSet. In addition to a specially designed incubator vessel and a ventilation pump, the set contains all the necessary parts for comfortable and efficient hatching. Fill the jar with 0.5 litres of water and add 10-15g (2 scoops) of JBL ArtemioSal and, as needed, 1-3 scoops of JBL ArtemioPur Artemia eggs. With strong aeration and a temperature of 25 ° C, the nauplii hatch in about 24 hours. At low temperature, hatching is slower. The aeration is absolutely necessary and ensures an optimal hatching result and the required oxygen supply. After hatching, shut off the ventilation.
The nauplii now collect within a few minutes on the floor at the bottom of the vessel and the empty eggshells on the water surface. Depending on the intended use, you can now sieve the nauplii and feed them to your fish or raise them separately.
