Item:173567792206Fairy Shrimp Eggs PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS FOR FRESH EGGS NOT LIVE SHRIMP. THESE EGGS ARE VERY SMALL AS THE POWDER AND WILL BE SHIPPED IN A RE-SANDABLE BAG. AT FIRST SIGHT THE BAG MAY APPEAR EMPTY BUT YOU MAKE SURE THAT SO IS NOT. OPEN THE BAG VERY CAREFULLY WITH THE SCISSORS AND POUR DIRECTLY IN THE BATH WITH THE WATER AS I WILL EXPLAIN YOU 'MORE' NEXT TANK - A transparent tank of 2 liters or more is optimal. Wash the tank thoroughly under running water. Do not use soap or detergent, since even a small residue is very toxic to shrimps. WATER - The best and cheapest water for fairy prawns in which to live is a good bottled water not carbonated. Do not use tap water as chemicals and chlorine are toxic to shrimps. EGGS - When everything is ready, open the sachet at the top, open the capsule gently and drop the "powder" (cysts) into the water. The dust floats on the water and must be shaken or shaken to make it go down. if some floats do not hatch. Now you are ready to watch and wait The cysts will immediately start to absorb water, but the shrimp will not come out until they are convinced that the water will last. This will take from 24 to 48 hours, sometimes longer, depending on the conditions. The shrimp will start immediately to swim, with fast and snappy movements. They are extremely tiny and easily ignored at the beginning. One way to see them is to obscure the room and make a torch shine in the side of the pan. They are "phototropic" in the sense that they are attracted to bright lights. Leave the torch lit for several minutes and the shrimp will swim towards the light. A magnifying glass is very useful to see them at this stage. FOOD - The day after seeing the shrimp for the first time swim around, you could start feeding them. In nature, fairytale shrimp are filterers. They pull small particles out of the water for food, mainly bacteria, algae and fungal spores. In captivity, they will live quite happy with a diet made of brewer's yeast dissolved in water (NOT OF TAP). USE AS FOOD - If and when you want you can use shrimp as a food for fish, triops, frogs etc.Condition:New, Bundle Listing:Yes, Water Type:Fresh, Country/Region of Manufacture:Italy, Type:Eggs, MPN:Does Not Apply, Main Ingredient:Shrimp, Brand:Unbranded
