Recharge your Shrimp Bubble with this starter portion of live algae that will grow and thrive in brackish water.
We culture two species of brackish water algae in our own hatchery. One species is Chaetomorpha sp. a truly euryhaline algae (able to tolerate a wide range of water salinity) and is found in the wild in specific gravity from 1.002 to 1.069 (almost three times the salinity of the ocean!).There are other species of the genus Chaetomorpha, used in reef aquariums, that do not tolerate lower water salinity, and will eventually disintegrate when placed in brackish water. Do not use those species in your Shrimp Bubble Ecosystem or for any type of brackish water aquarium.
A second species of algae is a type of brackish hair algae species endemic to the Hawaiian brackish water anchialine pools, the habitat of the opae ula (Halocaridina rubra) shrimp. We acquired this species some time ago from a vendor in Hawaii, and have been cultured this algae in our hatchery ever since. We have yet to scientifically identify this algae species.
