You have to allow for the chemicals to fully disperse and for the water to reach room temp.

Mine started breeding but didnt live very long after not so sure what i did wrong.

I had them in work on my desk and some tool who looks and sounds like Trunchbull from the film Matilda knocked them over and tried scooping them up in her hands! They were all over my desk, in my keyboard and all down my legs!

i cant believe people keep brine shrimp as pets...the only interesting thing to ever happen in those stupid things is that an aptasia comes up and eats them all...thats cool...then keep the aptasia...

Has anyone had them other things Trytops or something. Huge things like monster seamonkeys. You end up with one as they eat each other, a bit like prehistoric sea monsters lol

I had some when I was in student halls as I wasn't allowed any other aminals. They were going great guns and breeding and some drunken plonker drank them for a dare at a house party. They may not be very interesting but I still got attached to the little beggars.

My eldest used to have these when she was younger. She loved them. We went on holiday though and she left them in the sun coming through the window and the water had all gone by the time we returned :(

Think I will get my other daughter some, bet she will love them.
