    The picture of the large Triops on the thread you started; I have seen that picture on 2 to 3 different Triops... so which one that really is, is a guess.
    Yes, with more online researching I've seen that photo used to illustrate different species too. We'll just have to see what pops up in our batches.

    If you've ever searched for leaf tailed geckos you've no doubt seen the most amazing picture of Uroplatys phantasticus but I've never seen one for sale that looked like that, they look more like a dried leaf than the mini-demon in the pic I linked.

    I wanted to buy some Trilobite fossils off ebay before, but found out there is a huge problem with fakes on there and even stores that sell them. I may not mind buying a replica, but I want to know that's what I'm getting.
    Thanks - I also like the Phacops, but I really wish I get my hands on an unrolled specimen. It's just way to common how these roll up before dying.... Which explains the connection to modern day sowbugs

    I got the Elrathia in a little gift set of random fossils. It's less than a cm across, so I seriously doubt anyone would go through the trouble to make a fake one... But whether or not it is, it looks cute

    Back when I lived in Toronto, I had a much greater variety of fossils... especially brachiopods and gastropods collected at Ontario Lake. And they were of a good size too! I still have no idea where those ended up Definitely want to visit a lakeshore or something, I need to get my collection back up and running

    Isn't up and "running" an oxymoron when referring to a collection of fossils?

    LOL!!! Glad someone caught that

    I haven't collected a fossil for years now. I haven't exactly been looking for them either xD

    I got triop eggs from a friend a few days ago... well technically she gave them to my mom and she did everything to get them to hatch, but whatever. They're mine.

    Only three hatched... but, they're growing very fast!! very, very fast! I'm taking care of them now cause my mom is away...

    I'll post pics when they're big enough to take pics of.

    And awesome fossil collections everyone!

    I'm not having any luck with my eggs hatching either. They should start hatching in 3 days, it's been 7 days and nothing. I keep checking the hatching tank a few times everyday. The wife told me to give up on them today.... which I'm about ready to do.
    It was recommend to have the temps at 70-74 for the Triops cancriformis that I tried. My house temp is set at 76 degrees and the water temp usually is around 76-78 degrees. About ready to try the Aussie 'Green' Triops Austrailensis. The temps are perfect to hatch these out 74-80 degrees ........ supposedly.....

    Good luck. Personally, I think these Triops are a scam, and it's rare for even one to hatch. It's hard for them to stay alive. Everything is just hard to do.
