Standard complete kit
This standard kit allows you to grow Triops! (Triops Longicaudatus) Triops are very special creatures. They make somersaults, twists and turns in the water like real acrobats, they can even swim upside down.
In this set you receive eggs that you will grow to Triops (this happens after only 1 to 2 days) !! After 10 days your Triops are already mature. And with 2 to 3 weeks, they Triops lay eggs. The animals can become 20-80 days old, and then you just start over with the eggs they laid!
Triops are between 2 and 6 cm long. How large the water creatures are exactly depends on the amount of food and light that they get and the size of the stay you keep them in.
These particular animals have 35 to 71 pair of legs! When a food grain is thrown into the water you can see that they take the food and bring it into their mouths with their feet.
