Can triops be kept with fish once they reach a large enough size?

It would be awfully cool. I do know that they can be conditioned to live in regular tank water. They seem to do better with rather filthy water conditions though, and you'd definately not want any of your fish to live under conditions like that. As far as tank mates go, triops are pretty viscious, so even larger fish would likely still get harrassed. And of course, a lot of fish will eat the triops..

I think I won't try becuase I have molly and wouldn't want to lose any fish after what happened a couple days ago. I've got about 6 in a separate tank.
