Every living species on the planet thrives in particular habitats congenial to their life requirements and processes. This is the reason that only particular types of plants and animals are found in different locations around the world. Temperature and light variations have been found to affect intensity of other aquatic organisms as well (Wong & Benzie 107). Animals are adapted to specific habitats too and Artemia sp. or brine shrimp, a local variety of arthropods, found in ponds and lakes is a popular model for studying habitat in the laboratory environment (Haag et al 284). Aquatic animals in particular have specific habitat requirements as the water salinity, temperature, intensity of light and availability of prey are essential prerequisites for their survival. This is the reason for different species of fish living in fresh water and shallow ponds and others in running rivers and deep oceans.Â Artemia franciscana, belonging to Phylum Arthropoda in particular, has been claimed to prefer a habitat where light is poor as it has prominent eyes without any protective anatomical feature which could make the species sensitive to light
