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??

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.
