Product Description:

If your first batch of Triops have all passed away, it's easy to start the cycle again with this inexpensive refill pack. Contains Triops eggs, nutrients, and food.

Category Description for Triops:

If you want a pet and you aren't allowed to have one or you just love strange-looking creatures, you're going to love Triops. Triops are small swimming crustaceans which resemble horseshoe crabs. They have three eyes, a round shovel-shaped exoskeleton, and a shrimp-like tail. Because they look prehistoric and in fact are identical to their long-fossilized ancestors, they are sometimes called "dinosaur shrimp." In the wild, Triops live in shallow ponds, which dry up seasonally. However, their eggs are able to survive for months to years before the pond fills again. What makes them gratifying as pets is that they hatch in 18-48 hours, quickly grow to their adult size of 1-2 inches, and have a lifespan of 20-90 days. Plus, they're easy to take care of, animated, and large enough to watch!

When getting started with your Triops, the manufacturer suggests that you boil bottled water and let it sit and cool before adding the eggs. Although they have added buffers to address quality inconsistencies in bottled water, this will help remove chlorine and any other impurities. You may also choose to try tap water, if you boil it and let it sit for 2 days in the light. Add only 25 Triops eggs at a time to the environment, in case there is an issue with the water and you need to start again.

Already had a tank I can use. i had these many years back. For home, not for education, but figured the purchase could support your work!

We ordered the Triops several months ago and had a really nice learning experience We raised the Triops from eggs and watched them mature and grow It was very exciting They are easy to grow I believe we had 13 at one time! Since we homeschool both a 10-year old and a 5-year old it can be difficult to find programs that they can both use But this came in really handy! There is also a website with about 50 pages that you can download from the company (their website and information is in the package) that is from the New York School Curriculum where they discuss topics such as what they are how long they live what types of conditions they need to thrive etc that can be downloaded and used as science material We did that and really got a lot out of it As for the price it is fantastic and I would recommend that everyone get a set It is amazing to care for something living without a lot of work like a large pet
