Hello Everyone,
here is an update as to how my Triops are doing.

Just some background information, the 1st generation of Triops that I had was the one and only one I had. When it died, I didn’t know that it had laid eggs until I looked really closely at the water. From just 1 Triops (from the initial kit I bought from Pet Lover’s Centre), I now have 6 2nd Generation Triops. In case you are wondering how they are doing now, here are some photos and a video.

Some Additional Information That You Might Be Interested To Know About

  • I sometimes feed my Triops with Daphnia. Most of the time, I feed them with Brine Shrimp Pellets (similar to what I feed my Betta Fishes with)
  • When the water level of the tank is less than half, I would top it up with tap water (anti-chlorine chemical added)
  • Do not top up too much water or change the water entirely as Triops might not be able to adjust to the sudden drop in water temperature.
If you have any questions regarding the breeding of Triops or any other enquiries, please feel free to drop me an email at melvin.ocs@gmail.com
