    T. longicaudatus are native to the American SW.

    JLAP, those aren't volcanic rocks, are they? Otherwise, very cool setup!!!

    Thanks! Nope. I got it from a lake in north georgia. Why are volcanic rocks bad?

    It reminds me of dead live rock.

    Apparently, other raisers say that lava rock messes Triops up by preventing them from shedding right, and therefore killing them. They also don't like pine bark, but I don't know why anyone would put that in their tank anywho.

    Not sure, maybe. Prolly would attack 'em. They are kinda predators, hunting other invertabrates like brine shrimp.

    Would they attack some Neon tetras and a betta? I really think those would be too big and fast to be bothered by the triops.

    Do you think I have enough sandy area? Do triops crawl over rocks or do they just swim and dig? I'm really excited. I think the tank looks like a natural habitat the way it is.

    Nope, people have raised Triops with fish before. They should be ok.

    Triops mostly dig and crawl along the bottom. They do eat a lot though. I wanted to tell ya though, don't put the baby Triops directly into a full ten gallon from the little hatching tank, they will feel very uncomfortable. Have it maybe 1/4 full, and then slowly add more every day. But have the added water the same temp as the other water. Also, use distilled water to hatch the babies, but use spring water (no chlorine) for the adults.
