We have been having considerable trouble with our Artemia.  We are barely 
getting any hatchout at 24 hours and are forced to wait until 48 hours to 
harvest the hatched Artemia to feed to our fish.  We have heard that there is a 
considerable shortage of Artemia around and many different labs are having 
difficulty as well.  We are trying the decysting protocol with bleach to try 
and increase our hatch rate, but the results aren't encouraging.  We have 
received bad cysts from:  Argent, That Fish PLace, Aquatic Ecosystems, and many 
others.  We were wondering if anyone in the Zebrafish community has found a 
repeatedly successful source of Artemia.
We would appreciate any comments or suggestions.
