Aqua Medic Life A Decapsulated Artemia Cysts 100 ml
Does not hatch no matter what you do. Might get 10% if you are lucky, and no way to separate brine from cysts. E-mails and messages left to manufacturer unanswered.

Not so great
Just not so sure if this product is worth the price of nauplii with "no shells".
I hatched out one batch, and it took a good three days to produce a nice swarm. However, after three days, it began to stink like low tide. So, I ended up dumping it.
I packaged it up to return and then thought I'd try again.
I put the temperature up to about 80 degrees to hopefully hatch them out sooner, but again,...low tide smell and terrible hatch rate.
Then, I decided to use a very small power-head to move the water and keep all the eggs suspended, which did a great job! One day later, the stink was there again!
My conclusion, these "shell less" eggs seem to be vulnerable .
I think I'll opt for the natural alternative, that is, hatching EGGS, not bringing to life, that which has been processed and put into suspension.

I tried hatching 3 different hatches without a single shrimp hatching. I was blessed that my Anglefish fry ate frozen baby brine.
There were no directions with the bottle other than what I have below, written in this style on the bottle:
10-30 ml (with a pic of the bottle next to this)
15-18 g reef salt
