Are you 100% sure they're triops? That seems really strange to me. Other types of critters like copepods aren't that uncommon though.

I suppose triops are possible...
their eggs can stay dormant for decades..

Again, unlikely... but possible.
I'm kinda jealous. I wanted to grow triops in my 5G

I think I'm gonna do shrimp instead tho.
