Lost count of my days but
I had gotten caught up with life off the internet so i had not the time to update everyone.
Sadly the last of my Triops Slash has succumb to failed molt. At...

After being rush out the door to take my younger brother to a few towns over, i believe i missed a feeding. I say that because i returned home later tonight to a victim of cannibalism.

Filter is working great and the heater is helping alot. i'm finding molted skins more often then before. Though a water change is needed which i will do later tonight if not tomorrow, to...

The Heater helped quite a bit, water temps remained around 80 all night. Had several molted skins to fish out of the water. i diverted a catastrophe.
bought an air powered filter that is...

thanks, the sad part is any temp above 72* is perfect temp for triops, but they had been so use to a tank being naturally at 80 or above. She hadn't done well a few days ago and recovered but the low...

Sad news, water temp in my tank dropped so low Snarl had trouble molting over night and didn't survive. i'm a little saddened that after her recovery the drop in water temp got her.

I think its safe to say Snarl made a full recovery. Swoop had an awkward molt and now her tails are entwined together, not sure if they will stay that way or not. It won't hurt her, just...

bascially yes, triop eggs don't normally hatch while still submurged. some do but they're designed to dry out in drought and hatch when water returns.
there are videos on youtube that shows how...

depends on their living conditions, small bowls chances are you'll end up with one all together. larger tanks give it a better chance for all to make it to full life. sometimes if you have ones that...

reaching the 3 week mark and my babies are almost half their life span. With that i bring good news.
Snarl recovered from what ever it was that cause her strange swimming. She is...

as long as they have gravel or sand they will lay eggs regardless of what tank or bowl they call home. Sand is more fun to watch them dig. they're whole purpose to live their short lives by eating...

You're most likely right. the excess waste contributed to the build up of bacteria and what not. i more or less over fed them as to keep them from eating each other. left their molted skins in the...

small Day 19 update
Don't want to get my hopes up but it seems like Snarl is back to normal....here's hoping nothing serious happens. moving them to a new tank seemed to be the best idea. wish i...

Update for Day 19
Snarl is hanging in there, hopefully she'll bounce back now that she's in clean fresh water. i was able to go out and buy water conditioner and aquarium supplement that boosts...

Sad news I lost Slag and Sludge.
Sludge might have passed couple days ago as i couldn't seem to count 6 triops the past day or so. Slag how ever passed during the night. Sludge was found...

looking in on my triops and noticed that poor Grimlock had her tails bitten off, she just has two lil nubs right at the end of her thorax. Poor baby. I don't know if it was from molting or someone...

My cat has been accepted into the triop society....this is literally how my cat sleeps when she's in my room. face or head against the glass.
as you can see the water isn't too...

Here is a photo of 3 of the 6 Dinobots
Left to Right: Slag, Slash (may notice the 1 1/2 tails) and Grimlock on the glass
Swoop was actually in the photo but she scampered behind the...

I just witnessed Snarl molt for the first time, she had me worried as she seemed to have a little trouble. might have been from the cooler water temp...hope the water warms up faster.
10-14-2013, 12:55 AM
I watch as my triops seem to be having a party after i had changed the water. i replace pretty much 3/4 of the tank water with spring water and swtiched the air pump from the filter to the...

Thanks for asking, its a mix of everything i'm guessing, it was cloudy from sand being caught up in the bubbler originally. water smells a bit so it probably a mix of ammonia, nitrate and what have...
10-12-2013, 03:57 AM
sorry for the lack of day 14. Nothing much has changed. the filter sure isn't doing much cleaning as the water is still cloudy if not more so than before. Triops are not very messy...

I apparently own cameras that take lousy close up photos, so i am unable to make an ID log.
But each of my triops have markings that helps me tell who is who
Grimlock - Single spot at the left...

Sad news i guess i wasn't fast enough at blowing air bubbles into the glass bowl with my pipette, but the new hatchling i found a couple days ago died. poor Skar. It's sad i know, but it happens...
