Sea-Monkeys

Anybody have sea-monkeys?
I use to have them years ago, and I know that their just brine shrimp. Is there anyway to just buy the eggs from the pet store (the ones your grow to feed) and keep them instead of going out and buying those little kits?

Yeah, just talk to your pet store. A lot of the smaller ones will sell them.

I used to have sea monkeys when I was young. I thought they were little magical creatures...hahaha! I was sad when I saw they never grew to look like what was on the package.


Hehe,Kayla its funny how this was put under "other exotics" hehe.

ohhhhh, man now I really wan some sea-monkeys I've been you tubing them out, of boredom and now I really wants some.
I'm going to go and get the feeder ones hopefully, as my mom said I could grow them to feed to my fish, but I'll probably end up keeping a couple as pets

Mine always died. I just bought the little kits and i would have one or two swimming around. You have to blow bubbles into the water and stuff. I don't think they're that easy to raise.

You shouldn't have to do that since you should have a bubbler .

Lisa, my son had those! I know what those are...although i cant remember the name right now.
His grew and got big! Like almost an inch long! We got them at walmart.

Let me ask him what they were....



he said they were called Triops. Some kind of "dinosaur shrimp" (website http://www.triops.com/)

I've had sea monkeys! ... but it wasn't that great... My sea monkeys hatched.. but they were so tiny I could barly see them, than they all died??I have had two lots of successful triops tho, they were really funny to watch, but hard to clean out, they also ate each other... which was gross!
