Acclimate your brine shrimp slowly, but do not take more than 30 minutes to complete the procedure.

Check temperature and PH upon arrival in both the shipping water and in the tank.

Follow this procedure :

  1. Float the bag in your tank for about 10 minutes to equalize temperatures.
  2. Partially open the bag and add 1 cup of tank water. (Do NOT aerate the shipping bag during acclimation)
  3. Wait 10 minutes.
  4. Remove 1 cup of water and add another cup of water from the tank.
  5. Wait 10 minutes.
  6. Repeat this procedure again.
  7. Gently use your hand to transfer the seahorses into the tank, discarding the water left in the bag.

Your baby brine shrimp can be enriched and fed to your seahorse fry, small fish, invertebrates, coral polyps, and many other little critters of the sea! Hold them in a separate tank for long periods or for growing our to large adult brine shrimp.

Feed artemia gro for daily maintenance and growth and Vibrance for enrichment.
