The Artemia Sieve is a well-constructed mesh-bottomed plastic receptacle
that is used to collect newly hatched artemia, allowing you to quickly
and easily rinse artemia in fresh or saltwater before they are
introduced into your aquarium. Because the hatching solution contains
any number of metabolites released during hatching, it is always
advisable to give newly hatched brine shrimp a quick rinse before
introducing them to your fish or before moving artemia to a culture
tank. Doing so greatly reduces the risk of bacterial blooms. Place the
Artemia Sieve in a shallow bowl and siphon the artemia directly into the
sieve. Partially pre-fill the bowl with water to minimize mechanical
injury to the baby brine shrimp. Can also be used as a dip net to skim
artemia or other zooplankton and larvae from water's surface.
Dimensions: 3" x 3.25" x 1.75" deep.
