Product information

Brine shrimps (Artemia) live in salt lakes and therefore need salt water. This is very easy to make by mixing salt (JBL ArtemioSal) and tap water. Theoretically, salt water can also be produced by mixing tap water with table salt, but table salt differs fundamentally from sea salt: it contains minerals and trace elements that are not contained in pure table salt (NaCl). The hatching rate of Artemia has been proven to be significantly higher in sea salt! JBL ArtemioSal has another special feature: micro-algae have been added as nutrients for the Artemia crustaceans, because the yolk sac only feeds the newly hatched crustaceans for a very short time. After that, they are dependent on algae for food.

If you want to cultivate Artemia eggs, you need to put the eggs into saltwater. JBL ArtemioSal has been designed to create this saltwater. The small Artemia crustaceans hatch inside and then provide perfect live food for your aquarium fish. The micro algae included in the salt mixture serve as food for the freshly hatched crustaceans.

Making your own live food has several advantages:
- Parasite-free
- High in fibre
- No need to catch in ponds
- Promotes the fish's hunting instinct
- Increases spawning readiness
- Simple, quick and convenient
- Cheap alternative to frozen food

It’s fun:
- Add salt to the water
- Put the Artemia eggs into the saltwater
- Wait until the brine shrimps have hatched
- Strain the brine shrimps into a sieve
- Ready for feeding

Analytical components
Can I use normal table salt instead of JBL ArtemioSal?

No! Additives such as iodine, fluorine and release agents hinder the hatching of the Artemia nauplii. Furthermore, table salt can have negative effects on the pH value.

Super Salz zum Ansetzen von Artemia Eiern!

A.Q.U.A.R.I.S.T.I.Komet - German

Super mit dem anderen Ergänzungsprodukt, die Artemia Eier.

Es ist einfach zu dosieren mit dem Löffel, der sich gerne im Salz versteckt.

Einfach klasse - in Kombi mit dem ArtemioPur hatte ich nach 24h eine ordentliche Portion Nauplien bei ca. 95% Schlupfquote ! Besser geht es fast nicht.

Top Salz um artemia anzusetzen

_aqua4you_ - German

Die Dosierung finde ich immernoch Klasse. Bei Fertigmischungen passt bei mir nie das Verhältnis von Salz zu Eiern. Eine super Lösung. Kann ich nur jedem ans Herz legen.
