They're cool I remember I had them once, but I remember reading DO NOT KEEP WITH FISH.

They will eat your fish, or your fish will eat them.

you can keep them with fish. of course like any fish or invert, you must acclimate them first to your water. ive heard of success of them being in community tanks but i havent had any success yet. I put one in my 10 gallon tank... the next day i never saw it again. heck, i never even found a corpse

I tried hatching Triops once with no luck. Just make sure they can't be eaten by your fish
