I grew these when i was a kid, and despite my initial disappointment that they looked nothing like the illustrations, i still thought they were pretty neat.
My 6-year-old likes doing little science experiments, so i thought she'd like these.
I already warned her that the pictures don't look like the sea monkeys, and googled "Artemia" (the genus name) so she could see them.
Anybody ever grow triops? How are they?
