ok, so i was looking at the dust in my aquarium, when i noticed some of the dust wiggling around
i believe i read that some eggs hatch, while some wait for after the dry season as part of their life cycle.

do i have baby triops? and if so do i need to do anything to help them?


edit: i want to add that this tank dose have an adult triops swimming about, which i am worried may make snacks out of potential babies.

Absolutely. While non-cycled spontaneously hatching eggs is sometimes reported, the scientific explanation has all to do with those fresh laid eggs that float and often find themselves stuck to the side of the tank. Here they often dry out then fall back into the water.
I love when it happens though to date I've yet to get many of these early risers to adulthood. Looking forward to your results!

you can follow their development in my log. the ones I separated are doing pretty well, but none seemed to survive in the tank proper.
