Hatching triops?

Has anyone tried these?

We did sea monkeys which I LOVED as a kid (I had every sea monkey gadget they sold.. including the bubble necklace ) .. but my children weren't nearly as impressed with their tiny size.

The triops look quite a bit bigger and more interesting.

We have a kit we picked up at Bed Bath and Beyond. It didn't work. Hope it works for you.
Blessings Upon You today.

We did this a few years ago, and it worked out great. They are considerably larger than sea monkeys, and the kids enjoyed it very much.
