    Default Triop (Tadpole Shrimp) Thread


    0 Not allowed!
    I'm raising Triops and looking for anyone with experience to hopefully answer a question.

    4 days ago i started my Triop hatchery, the ones that hatched 24 hours after egg placement have now grown to look as a triop is known for, though not an adult yet. Currently there are two. i watch one eat one of the more younger/late-to-hatch triops. They're Cannibalistic i know, it's normal. yesterday i had 15 today i counted 12 and watched one get eaten so my count is 11 Triops,

    I'm asking is should i move the more larger ones to a larger bowl i have set up for when they all get to their "teen" stage and let the more younger ones to grow without fear of being eaten by their bigger siblings? and keep doing that as they get bigger.

    Or just keep them all together and let them dine on each other...........even though i'm feeding them and they have some Daphnia and Fairy shrimp as bowl mates that they should been munching on.

    Eventually they will be put into a 10 gal tank together, i just want to keep the large numbers.

    The 2 largest of the brood Grimlock the largest and Slag. these two currently call a betta bowl home as i had to remove them from the hatching cup...Grimlock kept eating the babies even though i've been feeding him.

    out of 16 a couple days ago my count is only 5, many died from unknown cause and others were eaten. there are eggs remaining so that count may rise again.

    after moving 3 more larger triops to a glass fish bowl as they're still bite size for Grimlock, i found 7 more tiny babies in the hatching cup. the count is back up to 12 triops and i can't be more happy. this method transferring older ones to new bowls is great. but i only recommend it for those you know what they're doing as this could kill your Triops if don't too excessive.

    I'm afraid I don't know anything about triops, but good luck with them! :)

    You know its sad that not many do anymore, there's a triop forum but it's basically a dead forum, barely anyone logs in anymore, incuding veteran triop breeders

    I've always liked fish, but small aquatic creatures I have always thought are so cool :)
    Thanks for making the diary, cause now I can watch your progress with them since I can't do it for myself :)
