Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use normal salt to grow Artemia?

In principle, iodine-free salt can be used for breeding. However, HOBBY Artemia Salt corresponds in composition exactly to the salt water in the area where the Artemia comes from. It also contains traces of plankton for the nutrition of the hatched nauplii. According to scientific findings, the best hatching is achieved with HOBBY Artemia salt.

Why are my artemia nauplii dying?

There are numerous reasons for the death of artemia nauplii, from the quality or contamination of the water used to the quality and quantity of the feed given, the hygiene during rearing and the use of suitable rearing containers. We recommend the specialist book “Artemia – The Prehistoric Crab” by Oliver Drewes from VIVARIA Verlag. The book describes the seven recognized Artemia species according to the current state of knowledge, illustrated with numerous microscope images and drawings. After describing the special reproductive biology, the most successful breeding systems are presented. A separate chapter "Artemia in aquarium keeping" provides practical tips, for example on how to increase the hatching rate and survival rate of nauplii and artemia.
