|FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION|
|Q: The new manual says that it is important to aereate the water during the first week... I think they're too 'tender' during this period... What if I dont have the "Million Air Pump"?, do you know any other safer method to aereate the water?|
|A: The new manual is always right (trust the source ;-), there's a good
chance to have a higher survival rate if you aereate the water daily, during this crucial
first week. It has two purpouses, to oxygenate the water for this babies and to
'keep moving around' food particles.
Did you notice how babies Sea-Monkeys® form groups near a corner or in the top of the tank? With aereation, you can help them obtain the oxygen and food particles they need in this stage of life when they dont know to do anything better than looking at the light all the time.
One good "old but classic" method of aereating the Sea-Monkey water, is to pour all the formula (with the Sea-Monkeys® inside) back and forth to another (clean) container, about ten times from a height of six inches (as stated in the instructions at the back of the Jumbo Living Plasma packet). Nowadays, there's a tendency to add mechanical artifacts to aquarium tanks that creates artificial "waves" to the aquarium water, knowing that in order to "emulate" a natural habitat, there's a need to recreate water currents. With that in mind and knowing that Sea-Monkeys are excellent "againts-the-current" swimmers, you dont need to worry about thinking that you'll hurt your Sea-Monkeys using this method, they'll love the ride.
There's a less "messy" (less funnier?) method,
using the "Million Air Pump". This will add "millions" of tiny
air bubbles to their water in less time, with less effort. You must be carefull to
rinse this artifact with fresh bottled water after each use and wrap it with a paper towel
in order to protect it from getting bacterias. Remember you'll be using this again!
I tried to wash several "Million Air Pump" with hot water, but the
"stone" breaks up, so its better not to let it get dirty!
Unless, you came up with an idea like this, look at this
