Buy Copepod Sieves here, we have the most variety of all the micron mesh sizes.
Great for harvesting copepods, rotifers, brine shrimp and all other zooplankton.
These aquarium plankton sieves strainers are made with high grade PVC frame and laboratory grade polyester mesh fabric. They will hold up under rigorous use in saltwater. We have been using them for years in our Aquaculture Nursery Farms laboratory.
For multi-culture harvesting, or for separating different sized individuals from the same culture batch at one time, these also come in handy if you need to get a nice, clean end product to minimize the pollutants entering your aquarium. When you stack these sieves,(smallest micron on the bottom and so on) the 53- 120 -250 stack filters out all the larger impurities that you might have in your culture water. So let's say you are harvesting rotifers. All the guck that is floating around in the culture will get caught by the first two sieves in line ( 250 mic and 120 mic). So you end up with cleaner rotifers to feed your animals.
These are made 4 inches wide diameter by 4 inch high. Made with high grade outdoor PVC material. Laboratory grade polyester mesh screen. These will hold out under extreme use in the laboratory and prolonged exposure to the outdoors in the UV and saltwater environment. Also they are impervious to chemicals like bleach, chlorine etc. View pictures for details.
Basic instruction for some of their uses are:
Can be used as a permanent prefilter for your sump or wetdry. Instead of thoughs messy bag socks filters.
High volume filtering.
Sifting small cultures in the micron size to achieve a certain desired density.
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, soaked in whichever vitamins and minerals you used 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.
Try one of each size so you will have a variety of organisms to feed to your aquarium critters.
