That sounds cheap enough to give it a shot. From the little research I've done it seems they're easy enough to hatch and probably have the same care requirements as daphnia. They don't reproduce like daphnia, the eggs need to be dried out and go through a resting period before they'll hatch.

I might give it a try myself;.
