- Hatch in Transit
- We package our Brine Shrimp as eggs desgined to hatch in transit. Because we decapsulate them, even the unhatched egg makes for an excellent food source that's highly nutritous and waste-free.
- Rich in Fat & Protein
- Our Brine Shrimp are designed to hatch in transit so that they reach your tank at the most nutritous point of their life cycle. Rich in fat & protein, they are highly beneficial to fish, coral, jellyfish & other filter-feeding inverts.
- Feed Finicky Fish
- Nano Brine Shrimp have swimming behavior that elicits a strong feeding response from new or picky fish in your aquarium - They won't reproduce in your tank - but they do make a great snack!
Nano Brine ShrimpOur Nano Brine consists of premium decapsulated Live Brine Shrimp between 400-500 microns in size. Rich in fat and protein, they make them an excellent food source for fish, coral, and other filter-feeding invertebrates (like Jellyfish). Our Nano Brine is packaged as sterilized eggs designed to hatch in transit. This allows the Brine Shrimp to arrive at a highly nutritious life stage. Because we decapsulate our eggs, even the unhatched ones make for an excellent fatty-acid rich food source that is both nutritious and waste-free. Our Nano Brine is guaranteed to be free of all parasites
- Inspect the jar for swimming movement to be sure the eggs hatched successfully in transit.
- If you do not notice motion in the jar, but instead a large mass of brown "detritus" at the bottom, it is likely the eggs did not hatch in transit.
- This is not a cause for concern. Remove the lid and allow the jar to rest for up to 48 hours. Usually, the eggs will hatch within 12-24 hours.
- Pour the entire contents of the jar into the Aquarium to feed your fish and coral.
- For best results, turn off pumps and filtration until livestock consume all Brine Shrimp
- Nano Brine can be enriched with OceanMagik LIVE phytoplankton, just add 1 oz into the package container as a nutritious food source for the shrimp.

The growing popularity of refugia has been more a glorious resurgence than a successively rising trend. Indeed, they were quite commonly used in the hobby in the early 1990s. Unlike the refugia we’ve been seeing today, however, the …
We are finally starting to see a surge of interest in the nitrogen cycle & the “aquarium microbiome.” That is a very, very good thing, not just because understanding the microbial workings of our captive ecosystems is critical to our success as aquarists, but also because we remain woefully uninformed about (even unaware of) the …
AlgaeBarn is hardly the only aquarium hobby-centered business to produce phytoplankton and macroalgae. But we like to think that we’re pretty darn good at it–if not the best! Consider our highly-acclaimed premium live phyto blend OceanMagik in various kits or our standard-setting CleanMacro series. If it needs to be stated, algae is kind of the …
