Exotic Aquaculture Ephyrae Holding Aquarium (16L/25L)
The EA Ephyrae Holding Tanks are designed to keep ephyrae (larvae of jellyfish) which have extremely fragile bodies along with a limited swimming capability. Different to the common air-driven ephyrae tanks, EA ephyrae holding tank have a mesh screen and drain tube, which allows the user to connect the tanks to a life support system. This reduces the need for frequent water changes when compared with traditional air-driven ephyrae tanks. This also ensures that ephyrae have more stable water conditions for their growth, and reduces the risk of damage incurred during the water changes. Newly born ephyrae (>2mm) can be moved straight into the tank, with water recirculation.
There are two sizes available for EA Ephyrae holding tanks. The mesh screen box is detachable for easy cleaning. A drain hose can be connected to the hose connector, which is also holding the mesh screen box. We suggest the inlet water to be 2-3 cycle per day, which you can supply from your system using 4-5mm plastic/rubber tubes with an adjusting valve. The inlet water is for continuous water change, and not for the water flow. The water flow will be created by the air bubbles supplied from the side of the aquarium.
