Decapsulated Eggs — Traditional

The universal live feed for all fish fry and invertebrates.

Decapsulated Eggs — Traditional:
Non-hatching Brine Shrimp Cysts


Decapsulated or "shell-free" Brine Shrimp Eggs are an excellent energy source, are quickly converted to growth, and are highly digestible.

Also known as "topless," these brine shrimp eggs have been decapsulated prior to dehydration. This means that we have chemically removed or "oxidized" the outer shell or chorion using a strong chlorine solution. This leaves only the thin hatching membrane surrounding the unhatched brine shrimp embryo. The decapsulated eggs are then thoroughly rinsed, and the remaining chlorine is neutralized. The eggs are dehydrated and vacuum-packed (for long shelf life).

Non hatching decapsulated eggs are fed directly, without the necessity and downtime of hatching. Decapsulated eggs have a higher energy and nutritional value than a live brine shrimp nauplii. Since these eggs are non-hatching, no energy is consumed in the hatching process, and lipids, amino acids, and enzymes are left intact. Simply rehydrate the decapsulated brine shrimp eggs for a few minutes in fresh water and feed directly to your baby fish or reef tank.

A little bit of these goes a long way — don't overfeed!

Can pet stores or mail order companies make this claim?
