Dear Sharon,

Here we use also INVE cysts. We allow them to hatch at 28°C with light, in a 24h delay. But before putting themin the hatchery, we soften them by incubating 30' in RO water and then 5' in NaClO. After that we rinse thoroughly and then put in the hatchery with salted water.

This NaClO treatment allows a rapid hatching and the cycsts are soft, and then don't hurt the gut of the fish. We use the same artemias for fries and adults (since day 9, increasing the given amount).

Hope it helps,

best regards,
