We manufacture micron mesh sieves, plankton collectors and aquaculture sieves, laboratory sieves of all diameters and micron mesh sizes. Primarily used in aquaculture and biology labs. saltwater or Freshwater use. Many other applications.

All our sieves are stackable with each other but can also be used separately.

Basic instruction for some of their uses are:

 

For a longer service life, rinse sieve with distilled or r/o water after each use. If you use hard tap water, the sieve mesh (especially the small microns) will tend to get clogged somewhat over time, or through many uses.

 

The 53um micron is good for rotifers or anything that is slightly larger than common rotifers.

 

120um micron is good for Copepods, Dafnia, baby brine shrimp, etc.

 

250 micron larger brine shrimp, copepods, etc.

 

475 micron for larger debris, and larger species of copepods, juvenile mysis shrimp, Grown brine shrimp.

 

1000 micron for amphipods and mysis shrimp.

 

Sifting small cultures in the micron size to achieve a certain desired density.

If you are stacking these make sure that you put the smaller micron mesh on the bottom and then work your way up to the larger microns. For example, if you have three sizes put the 53 down first then the 120 then the 250 on top. This way when you run your culture through the different microns, the larger debris gets filtered out first by the larger micron and so on. You end up with a much cleaner harvest.

Start by pouring your culture water (i.e. rotifers) through the sieve. Then rinse the organisms with water with the same parameters as your culture water into a smaller container, so you end up with a denser culture. Feed them directly to your corals and fish fry. You can also saturate your cultures with vitamins and minerals. Just let this super concentrated culture that you sieved, soak in whichever vitamins and minerals you use for a few hours, before using to feed. There is no food manufactured better than live food for your aquarium. Tools like this sieve allow you to facilitate and save time and money on expensive live foods by culturing your own. These sieves can be used for saltwater or freshwater.

Care Instructions:

For a longer service life, rinse sieve with distilled or r/o water after each use. If you use hard tap water, the sieve mesh (especially the small microns) will tend to get clogged somewhat over time, or through many uses.

You will notice a big difference in your corals, fish growth and behavior, almost immediately after feeding them live foods. This is the method that fish nurseries use. It is starting to be well known that many varieties of coral actively feed on small phytoplankton and zooplankton. So you will experience unbelievable growth and fortitude in your corals if you start feeding them things like enriched rotifers. You should also start seeing a lot more brilliant colors come out in your corals and fish.

 

Construction:

 

We manufacture sieves of all diameters and mesh sizes. Made with high grade outdoor PVC material. Laboratory grade polyester mesh screen. Mesh is imported from Germany.These will hold out under extreme use in the laboratory and prolonged exposure to the outdoors in the UV and saltwater environment. View pictures for details.
