12"collector / sieve for field sampling or lab scale work. This collector comes with a 55µ mesh and is ideal for culturing copepods. Can also be used to seperate adults from eggs and nauplii. This unit will fit into a bucket with a 12" diameter rim. This sieve fits over the lip of a 5 gallon bucket. As you can see in the pictures, it has a lip to fit snuggly and secure, right on top of the RIM; PLEASE NOTE THE BUCKET IN THE PICTURE IS NOT INCLUDED. Sieve has many uses: Culturing Zooplankton, rinsing corals, cleaning live rock, catching baby fish fry. These sieves are made with PVC frame and laboratory grade polyester mesh fabric and can be used in both fresh and salt water. They will hold under extreme use in the laboratory and prolonged exposure to the outdoors in the UV and saltwater environment. Basic instruction for some of their uses are: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, soak in whichever vitamins and minerals you use for a few hours, before using to feed. 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. 100µ micron is good for Rotifers, Copepods, Dafnia, baby brine shrimp, etc.
