This version of Dans' Feed has probiotics added to the mix. This can help reduce the potential for pathogenic bacteria from growing in the culture and bioencapsulate into the artemia for delivery directly into the fry via the feed helping boost the immunity, survival rates, food conversion ratios and faster growth rates.

Mix measured amount of enrichment (0.2 grams/Liter, approx 1/8 tsp) with fresh or saltwater in electric blender for 2 minutes (stick or handheld blender works exceptionally well) or until completely emulsified and particles are broken down. When blending is complete, strain through 50 micron mesh (Rotifer Sieve) if desired, to eliminate any foam or left over larger particles.
For Artemia nauplii
Transfer Artemia nauplii to an enrichment tank with clean, filtered seawater. Maximum density of Artemia should not exceed 100,000 nauplii per liter of water. Add the prepared enrichment mixture to the enrichment tank. Aerate enrichment tank vigorously so that oxygen levels exceed 4ppm during the 12 hours of enrichment. Harvest the enriched Artemia nauplii after 12 hours or for best results, repeat the enrichment process for another 12 hours.
For Adult Artemia
Transfer Adult Artemia to an enrichment tank with clean, filtered seawater. Add the prepared enrichment mixture to the enrichment tank. Aerate enrichment tank vigorously so that oxygen levels exceed 4 ppm during enrichment process. Allow a minimum of 2 hours or for best results 4 hours. Harverst artemia, rinse in clean water and feed.
