    i enjoy giving my betta treats of frozen brine shrimp, so when I came across Sea-Monkeys(tm) at a toy store, couldn't resist!

    Maybe I'll keep them as pets. Maybe I'll feed them to the betta. Who knows?

    There was actually a thread about this - hopefully you grow enough of them and they breed to make it worthwhile.

    I've though of doing it before, but my lfs sells them weekly live for 1 a bag, and there's enough to feed the tank so no point really
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    i loooved those growing up! aside from all the weird little "toys" and "leashes" you could buy them.. kind of seemed like a distraction from kids who wanted a dog. (at least mine were lol). that's a wonderful idea. especially for someone who suffers from MTS. that way you can feel like you have a "tank".

    I'm having fun with them! My co-workers also like them. Everyone's heard of sea-monkeys but few ever actually bought them It's a cultural touchstone

    Two main problems:

    1) after all the test kits, reading and resources involved in tank-keeping, it feels weird to take pre-packaged powder and just dump them in water. I keep wondering about ammonia, etc. in the long run..

    2) The tank that they came with was tall and rectangular - I was always nervous I'd knock it over. I replaced it with this nice heavy glass jar that's also much more aesthetically pleasing:

    Those work pretty well, numberwise. Just follow the instructions and the tank will last about a month, more if you remove some now and then. They do make good fish food, although they aren't the most nutritious thing you can give your fish.
    I hate hearing people say "it's only a $3/$5/$1 fish/shrimp, so it's ok if it dies, I can just get another." It's still an animal! All animals should be treated like they're worth $10,000.
