Hatch in whatever hatchery you prefer, such as the San Francisco Bay Brand Hatchery, and then use the Separator cup to gather all the shells and unhatched cysts, leaving behind only clean, ready-to-feed, live baby brine shrimp.

Available in Europe for years, this innovative, tried-and-true product for hatching and gathering shell-free baby Brine Shrimp (Artemia nauplii) is finally available to customers in the U.S.!

Sep-Art Separator with Sep-Art Artemia Cysts

The Sep-Art Technology allows for the fast and complete separation of the baby brine shrimp (nauplii), shell material, and unhatched brine shrimp egg (cysts) without decapsulation (removal of the cyst shell).

Sep-Art Artemia Cysts are brine shrimp eggs coated with a non-toxic magnetic material. The cysts look normal, have a 90% hatch rate, and hatch using standard hatching procedures.

Magnified, and magnetized! Sep-Art Artemia cysts.

The Sep-Art Separator facilitates the harvesting of baby brine shrimp hatched from Sep-Art Artemia Cysts. The acrylic Separator has a magnet built into the bottom that allows for quick and complete separation of baby brine shrimp, shell material, and unhatched eggs. The result is pure, clean, and active baby brine shrimp, without shell material of any kind.

The Separator cup is a rugged acrylic with a heavy magnetic base that attracts and secures both shells and unhatched cysts, effectively separating them from the live brine shrimp nauplii.

Directions

After hatching the Sep-Art Artemia Cysts, drain or siphon the nauplii and unhatched cysts into the Sep-Art Separator. The Separator contains a strong built-in magnet: unhatched cysts and shell pieces get trapped by the magnet on the bottom of the Separator. The non-magnetic free-swimming nauplii are ready to use. Pour through a net, rinse in fresh water, and feed your fish or reef. Thanks to the gentle separation process, the nauplii are extremely viable.
