Shimizoki's Triops

Sooooo guess what I got in the mail today? That's right, MY TRIOPS!!!

I have been ranting about it in the rant thread for a few days now and they finally arrived. Better late than never I guess. Here is how it went down.

I opened the package::


I got out a Tupperware container and poured in about 2 inches of oxygenated distilled water::


Added the Sand + Eggs::


Placed in my closet where it can get 72 hours of light and a lower temperature::


If all goes according to plan I can hatch these bad boys in approx. 48 hours and have a batch of babies.

Betta:
Males - Alpha(CT), Unnamed Dragon(HMPK)
Females - Red, Green, Teal, Blue, Pina, Helena

Dragons:
Xerxes

Woohoo! Finally! That's a lot of eggs my friend! The brown gunky stuff is the eggs right? Can't wait to see them hatched :D
@TBBF- They're a type of crustacean, like shrimp.. They're considered living fossils because they've been around for so long! :D

They are prehistoric arthropods. They predate dinosaurs and they are still alive today. They haven't evolved much and kinda look like the modern day horseshoe crab. They are mostly bottom feeders that will eat almost any organic matter.

@fighter, no not all the brown is eggs, its mostly sand. The eggs are tiny and pink. The sand contains micro organisms for the first few days of life.

I got this from the internet... THANK YOU INTERNET PERSON.

Neil... they grow pretty quickly and lay thousands of eggs, they could very well become a betta snack in the second generation if I wish.

These bad boys will only live 90 days, then I can hatch as many eggs as I see fit.

They reach maturity in about 2 weeks and then reproduce non stop for the next 10.
The first few Triops will begin to die off after a month.

Lol at this thread. My ones about fish get this many posts in 2 days. The one about something other than what the forum is about... 2 minutes.
