Over priced brine shrimp.
just thought id share and ask questions. my questions will be in red
When the water level gets low, should I add more Water Purifier?
No, just fill to the correct level with distilled or purified water. The Water Purifier is designed as a one-time formula
Its said to just contain salt and shrimp eggs...
Do Sea-Monkeys like the sun? Should I put them in sunlight to stay warm?
Sea-Monkeys are photo-reactive (meaning that they will react to sunlight), and they love the sun. Indirect sunlight is okay but keep them out of direct sunlight, so that their tank doesn't get too hot!
"they love the sun...but keep them out of direct sunlight"
-seriously? man i hate these sellers already.
What temperature should the water be?
Room temperatures around 72° F (22° c) should be fine.
Can I color my Sea-Monkeys by adding food coloring to the water?
Uh, no. Adding anything to your tank not specifically designed by Transcience Corp for Sea-Monkeys will probably kill them.
Dont add anything we dont sell!!! it takes our money away!!!
Should I change the water periodically?
I disagree wouldnt this make the water heavily ammoniated?
I heard that I can feed them yeast instead of Growth Food, is this true?
Only if you really want all of your Sea-Monkeys to die.
But your packet contains yeast. wtf?!?
I'm running out of food, is there something else that I can feed them? -- How about fish food?
Absolutly not, your pets cannot survive on anything other than Sea-Monkey food. You can purchase food packets and more from our online store
Buy more of or food. shell out ur money pleaseeeee
Is the Growth Food supposed to be green, or is it moldy?
Yes it is. And no it isn't.
Yes. No. maybe so.
How does Sea-Monkeys reproduce?
The male and female can mate together sexually or the female can fertilize her own eggs, a process called parthenogenesis or "self-conception"!
Look its actually a helpful fact
How can I tell if I have any pregnant Sea-Monkeys?
The female will carry an egg sac near her stomach.
What happens if the pregnant female dies before releasing her eggs?
To insure the survival of the species, nature sometimes causes the female to release her eggs, even after death.
I actually thought this was pretty cool
How long after mating will it be until the babies are born?
Not even we know for sure.
Seriously? u sell a product for years and u dont even know?
How long does mating take?
Sometimes you may see your Sea-Monkeys attached for several weeks,
so try to give them some privacy.
This cant be right.. several WEEKS?
How many is too many?
Your tank will safely hold about 100 Sea-Monkeys, more than that and there may not be enough oxygen for all of them.
U need to check out the tank that can hold 100 of these.
What ARE Sea-Monkeys?
Can you find Sea-Monkeys in the sea?
No, you will only find them in your Instant Life packet and Sea-Monkey tank!
brine shrimp anyone? they make it sound like they discovered an alian thing that there formula can only grow....
How long will my Instant Life packet last before I use it?
How long has never been established, although Sea-Monkey eggs have hatched after a decade! Sea-Monkeys exist in suspended animation through a process called "cryptobiosis". Once the eggs are poured into treated water, they "magically" come to life!!
Whats funny is that there is eggs in the Water purifier so when u pour the instant life packet in and wait a day the sea monkeys from the day before when u pour the water purifier in have hatched so they look like they have magially hatched.... sigh
Why are they called Sea-Monkeys?
Because of their playful demeanor and the facts that they have tails!
Are Sea-Monkeys a type of plankton?
Plankton are single cell animals, Sea-Monkeys are multi-cell animals.
Well its good cleared up the amount of cells in my pet. i mean friken seriously?! this is the question that made me mad.
I aerated my tank for over a week and new Sea-Monkeys did not hatch, what do I do now?
Allow all of the water in your tank to evaporate (this may take several weeks).
Add fresh bottled or distilled water and 1 package of Water Purifier Stir
Wait a few days and you should see new Sea-Monkey babies!
because the water purifier has the eggs in it too!!!!!!!
Are there any benefits to owning Sea-Monkeys?
Similar to owning fish (or a lava lamp) owning Sea-Monkeys is said to have a calming effect. Picture a tank on your desk at work and your Sea-Monkeys frolicking about inside. They are quiet, and easy to care for needing only to be fed once a week and you rarely need to clean up after them!
forget medicine and therapy sea monkeys fix everything!!!
What are some cool Sea-Monkey facts?
They breathe through their feet and adults have 3 eyes!
IF true then that is kinda cool. breathing through feet is kinda useful. and that extra eye could be handy...
Why must I wait 24 hrs before adding the Instant Life?
So the Water Purifier can completely clean the water of any bacteria or harmful impurities.
so when u add the instant life it looks like they immediantly come to life.
It's been a week and I still don't see any Sea-Monkeys, do I start over?
Sometimes Sea-Monkeys take their own sweet time to hatch. Occasionally it takes up to 72 hours. They are only about the size of a pinhead so you have to look very close!
lies! u said it was instant!
What is the gunk on the bottom of my tank? Are those dead Sea-Monkeys?
A natural part of their ecosystem, this "gunk" is actually decaying Sea-Monkey moltings, waste and eventually dead Sea-Monkeys. Sea-Monkey's molt up to 7 times during their lifetime. What you saw was probably just dark-colored shells. Dead Sea-Monkeys look like normal Sea-Monkeys, only they don't move around as much.
>.> >.> >.> the last sentance. just re read it.
Do I have to use a special Sea-Monkey tank?
No, even a clean 12 ounce jar can be their home. We offer a selection of Sea-Monkey tanks with lights, glow-in-the-dark features and built-in aerators and magnifying portals to add to your Sea-Monkeys experience!
cant find any special tanks.
Can I put Sea-Monkeys in with my fish?
Only if you want them to become fish food!
It would be kinda cool if they could live harmouniously.
My tank has lots of gunk on the bottom, how do I clean it?
That gunk contains Sea-Monkey eggs and algae. You don't need to clean it,
but if you wish you can just suck up some of that gunk with your Aqua Leash. Don't forget to top off the tank with more water!
i want a clean tank.
Should I remove the Sea-Monkey shells after they shed them?
It's not necessary, all of the stuff that collects on the bottom of the tank are
part of the Sea-Monkey ecosystem.
wouldnt this cause spikes of ammonia?
Should I change the water periodically?
No. Add clean, fresh water to recommended levels as it evaporates.
There is no need to change the water.
Can I contact Transcience via email?
Not at this time.
u need to see the website its never been edited or checked. ever.
I accidentally ate the contents of one of the packets, should I seek medical attention?
No, but what were you thinking? While not very tasty to humans, all of the packets (Water Purifier, Instant Life, Growth Food, etc.) are completely non-toxic. The only exception would be if you had some sort of allergic reaction.
u can see who the buyers of the products are...
If you have any problems with your Sea-Monkey kit (I.e. broken part), please contact the store where you purchased it or Sea-Monkeys Inc. directly.
What are Sea-Diamonds?
Sparkling, non-toxic gem-like crystals that Sea-Monkeys use to play and build caves with. Over time, they actually float, suspended in the water like mysterious floating astroids.
i cant figure out what these are
If u do want these http://www.sea-monkey.com/html/aboutsm/whatarethey.html
Send me some eggs XD haha
anyways just thought to share these.
