    Hi guys, a few questions regarding hatching of artemia eggs:

    1) Do you need big air bubbles or small ones in the holder?

    2) How do you keep the temp constant?

    Wanna breed some extra artemia for my butterfly and other fish.:)

    :wave2:

    Hi Lindsay, for now I just wanna culture for food for my fish and corals - so they'll be added into the water collumn within the first 24hrs. I'll build myself a nice culture station in time using "green" water (phyto and rotifiers) with all the right goodies. :wave2:
