Triops from nowhere?!?!?!!?
three days ago i got some of those plants from petsmart you know the ones in the tubes and i planted them in my ten gallon (future shrimp farm / apparently new triops farm) and out of nowhere i started seeing little baby triops!!!! anybody have theis happen to them or know why this would happen??:-?
yeah i know after some reasearch that the plants arent ment for aquariums even tho they are labeled "for aquarium and tropical taririum"

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

yeah iv raised triops before and theyr exactly like that and they keep getting bigger. but they could be copepods ill have to wait and see when they get a little bigger

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.
