You guys are terrible influences. I'm seriously considering ordering some of these to stick on the kitchen table. I mean, like, five bucks for some entertainment while we eat?

Here's a video of Bacon from last night. He does this most nights after I feed him, and was the only one out of the four to do it. He throws himself into the bubbles, gets covered in them, then dances all around the tank. Wash rinse repeat. He's a riot. They really do have little personalities.

Bacon's still active, but he's starting to flip about and sit upside down a lot, which the others did when they started to fade. He may be on his last few days. This is sadder than I expected it would be!

Do you have to dry the substrate to get the eggs , or do some hatch without drying out first?

What I read made it unclear . I read that some eggs do have to dry and others dont? halp!!

They need to be dried out completely. Then, you can re-hydrate them and that stimulates them to hatch.

We lost Bacon this morning. RIP Sandwich Triops. Letting the water cool down, then it's time to drain!

Me too! All I've had time to do so far is siphon the water down to the sand. From here I'm unsure what the best process is.

The triops laid most of their eggs along the right side and front side of the tank, so I may just dig up all of that sand and focus on that, and put the rest of the sand aside for re-use.

Most things say that freezing the wet sand for a few days will simulate winter and re-hatching without the need to dry it out, but I'm still researching. Most egg-harvesting articles I see are for gravel users.

I also want to re-do my tank, and add plants in the time while I wait. A simple plant or two, it will keep the tank cleaner and the triops love a 24-hour snack bar!

Might spend my lunch break doing some research. I'm excited for the second generation, these guys are addictive!
