Hey guys... i thought i would start a thread in the new sections Mik made so here we go!

Triops Longicaudatus - Do u think they would be ok to feed to axies.. they seem to breed very quickly and are cheap and easy to come by..

Take a look at the above links i know they are from ebay (sorry!) but it was the best place to find the most info on them..

So let me know what you think, Me, Dot and Pete are all interested!

From my experiences, they are fairly aggressive nibblers and it wouldn't surprise me at all if they were to begin biting axie fins and feet.

They were in the news just yesterday as they were found in scotland for the first time in a long time, apparantly they are the World's oldest living animal???
I tried a triops kit once and they didnt hatch. Some of the stuff in the bag did hatch and i ended up with a freshwater artemia populations for a while and some daphnia also appeared in there but no triops!!!
Cool looking beasties, dontthink id like feeding them to axies Click the image to open in full size.

Um, I wasn't all that interested in feeding them to my axolotls in the first place ... though I did have a culture I kept living for about a year and a half when I was 12.

Cool looking little critters. I saw a kit for these guys at the early learning center, it said they grew to be 1 inch long, which is quite big.
