I will once I get it going. It'll have to wait a couple weeks, but I'm very excited.

They're so adorable.

I would love to try triops and your tank set up and wonderful.

Have you ever seen those blown glass inclosed living spheres that have life cycles go on without any interference? THey are pricey but I am so intrigued.

I need to get some new photos - Bacon appears to be thriving. Part of me wonders if he at least partially tried to eat the others, and that's why they weakened. Who knows?

Just wanted to update that Bacon is still alive, well, and swimming drunkenly.

OMG!!! Those are the luckiest brine shrimp on the planet.

I always fed the freshly hatched ones to my baby Bettas (thousands of them...) I never really looked at them. They're adorable. <3

ETA: Nvm, I just looked up Triops. Those are so cool! 300 millions years old?

Cancriformis!!! Oh man excited, you have to have to share pics. I'm debating trying some of them too. I love their mottled patterning too.

Bacon is approximately 20 days old now and still going strong.

A few shots of Bacon from this morning before the water change. He seems to be thriving as the sole triops left. His carapace has gotten almost prismatic in colour and he's grown even more - almost 3 inches!

I'm seriously considering ordering some cancriformis while I wait for the substrate to dry for the current longicaudatus eggs. Augh these guys are addictive.
