    I was going to put this in the salt water aquaria forum, but I realized that virtually no one looks at it. I've had Sea-Monkeys for about 2 and a half months. The first generation died, but I have babies now. Does anyone else grow Sea-Monkeys?

    I have, but I haven't. I've grown brine shrimp (same thing, I know) in a bucket once. But I don't think its quite the same unless you do it in a tank and love um as pets instead of fish food hehe

    They were quit fun to raise though [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    no, they aren't the same... sea monkeys are a hybrid brine shrimp, a different SSP.

    I've grown both [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    GASP! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] Well, I didn't know anyone else here had grown/grows triops. I grew them for a while, but it was difficult, being at my house and all... Nothings safe... *darty eyes*... ever [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] . They were and interesting bunch, maybe I'll get some more one day.

    i grow brine shrimp for my dads fish [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    i never knew sea monkeys were a hybrid
    is it true that they can learn to do tricks like flip and stuff?
    also, do they make little castle like in the pictures? (just kiddin [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] )

    triops only live a month or so... you have to dry the enclosure out and then put more water in, to get the eggs to hatch...

    They don't "learn" to do tricks... thats bull poop! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] When they flip they are just feeding... Also, if you put them in a dark box for a while, then quickly remove the box (at night) and put a bright flashlight/spotlight in the enclosure they become fascinated, and dazed, and do all sorts of funny stuff
