Four, count'em, Four lil Triops scooting around the hatching tank. Yay!


For reference, these are your run of the mill Triops longicaudatus

When I get the chance, I'll be starting batches of the following:

Triops Cancriformus, Triops australiensis and some as yet unidentified Triops or Lepidurus species collected up from some temp pools in Kansas. If the fellow I am talking to can resolve his hatching reliability issues, I may also be getting some Lepidurus Bilobatus to try my hand at raising, too. Still working on getting somt Triops Granarius but that's proving to be more of a challenge.

Most excellent!

I'm thinking of buying a batch of cancriformus myself. The idea of an even larger triops is very appealing.

My understanding is that they grow a bit slower, and require a bit cooler water than other varieties, for best effect. They also tend to live a bit longer, too. 8)
