I used to keep Sea Monkeys, I think the main thing to remember is don't overfeed them and make sure they are well aerated. (Just use a straw with tiny holes punched in it to gently put bubbles into the water.)
If I remember correctly we lost ours when somebody accidentally dropped their container, oops!

The pond tank sounds really interesting, it must be fun to watch the caddisfly larvae, Dragonfly Nymph and Tadpoles develop into adults. What do the water beetles eat?

Wow, I guess it did not sink in when I read that first post that leeches are pets lol. Maybe it's because I'm like deathly afraid of all bugs whatsoever (except for some water bugs like daphnia, with those guys I don't really care).

Also another random question: How often, if at all, should I perform water changes on the Artemia tanks? None of the sites I looked at gave much information about anything....

It really depends on the type of water beetle. Any of the predacious diving beetles will eat worms (or sometimes tadpoles), "backswimmers" will eat anything that moves, so it's usually not great to put them in the pond tank. Lesser water boatmen usually eat plant matter, but I once caught them snacking on a tadpole that hadn't made it. I haven't caught any other species of water beetle yet.

We should probably get back on topic though! Lol

I found a site that might help you.

http://www.seamonkeyworship.com/top10.html

If you scroll down to question number 4 it explains about cleaning.
