Aeration

The aeration intensity must be sufficient to maintain oxygen levels above 2 mg/L, preferably 5 mg/L. The optimal aeration rate is a function of tank size and the density of cysts incubated. Aeration is usually provided by a simple tube connected to the air supply. The tube outlet must be positioned at the lowest point of the tank; if not, nauplii will actively accumulate under the aeration and die of oxygen depletion. In large tanks and high cyst densities, additional oxygenation may be necessary using airstones. Airstones, however, have the inconveniency of producing foam in which newly hatched nauplii tend to be caught. Excessive foaming can be reduced by disinfection of the cysts prior to hatching incubation and/or by addition of a few drops of a non-toxic antifoam agent (e.g. silicone antifoam).

How To Have A Perfect Boating Experience

Lets start by identifying what exactly certain boats are. Sometimes the terminology can get lost on beginners, so well look at some of the most common boats and what theyre called. These boats are exactly what the name implies. They are meant to be used for fishing. Most fishing boats are powered by outboard motors, and many also have a trolling motor mounted on the bow. Bass boats can be made of aluminium or fibreglass.
