"Seamonkeys" are brine shrimp?
I always thought Seamonkeys were a type of brine shrimp that were specially breed for kids. But I talked to a girl at a pet store that said she had used them as feeding for her fish and they worked fine ((and they were readily at pet stores AND toy stores)).
I did actually own these when I was younger, and they ARE very easy to look after, so they are a good alternative as far as maintenance goes. But are they suitable for fish?
The "sea monkey" brand is uses a hybrid form, it is edible but more expensive. You can find a cheaper alternative at your lfs
90 days? Wow. Mind you I don't know how long regular brine shrimp live so I don't really have a comparison.
Well, if they are triops, are they still edible?
im gessing so
Sea Monkeys arenÂ´t Triops. They are a hybrid of Artemia Salina which is a species of brine shrimp. Triops are tadpole shrimp, class Notostraca. :)
well thats what i allways heardi swore they were. :( http://www.discoverthis.com/triops.html i gess i had these guys
I guess so. How long were they ? An adult Triop has a length of approximately 1 inch.
here is some information about sea monkeys, and on the site it does say they are a special type of brine shrimp
there fine for fish food but not really cost-effective theve been bred to be hardy pets not food but theres no harm in fish eating them,triops will get eaten too but only by larger fish (they grow to a good size and look like a small horseshoe crab) one thing that is usefull in the way of sea-monkeys is the small setups they are sold with work quite well for hatching the normal brine shrimp
