Triops in enclosed ecosystem?; Could it ever be successful

I sometimes see ecospheres and other enclosed ecosystems with triops in them, but it seems like a bit of a waste seeing as how after 1 generation the ecosphere would be void of animal life. Unless there's something I don't know about?

Do the eggs rise with the evaporated water, stick and try to the lid, and then over time slowly drip back into the tank water therefore activating the 2nd generation eggs?

while i heard some negitive things about eco-spears (primarly that they are not as self contained as advertised are is dyeing a slow death) triops do not neccisarly have to dry out before hatching again. while they have there winter eggs which require the sesonal cycle, they also have spring or summer eggs that hatch as soon as the population is low enough.

my triop tank that i have been running has gone though what i think is about 5 generations without me messing with their eggs.
