    Is it possible to become emotionally attached to a kill-crazy cannibalistic worm that looks like a facehugger from the Alien movies and spends most of its time attempting to eat its siblings? Having recently shed a tear while burying my last one - Chompy - in the back garden, I'd say yes. These little beasties inspired fear and disgust in my girlfriend, but to me they were true friends.
    How could I forget the way Chompy used to play with his smaller brothers, chasing them around their tank for hours on end? Every couple of days, one of the brothers would vanish completely, and Chompy would do an extra-long poo to show how much he missed them.
    After about 30 days, Chompy disposed of the final, equally large brother - Ripley - by eating him from the tail up. I caught the two of them playing on the bottom of the tank - Chompy had Ripley's face in his mouth, and was munching away without a care in the world. The rest of Ripley was nowhere to be seen.
    Heartbroken, Chompy only lasted another week after that. For a while, he ate his fish pellets and bits of carrot as normal, but a triops is only half a triops without his playmates. Eventually Chompy turned green, and the end was nigh.
    Would I repeat the experience? Maybe, but next time I would have to steel myself for the inevitable tragic end. Triops might not live long, but they've got personality. And they eat Sea Monkeys for breakfast.

    I bought myself Triops after seeing my favourite YouTubers Dan & Phil have a batch and I though I'd see what they were like. I followed the instructions clumsily, and after waiting for at least a week there was nothing. I decided, being a lazy teenager and all, that I would leave the plastic tub full of murky water in my bedroom because it looked heavy! I left it under a night-light attached to my swanky Ikea shelving unit as it specifies to give your three eyed creatures plenty of light. Whilst reaching up above my non-existent Triop tank of misery, I saw the tiniest glimpse of a white swimming thing darting around the tank! I found it rather entertaining, and was amused by this little creature that I called Wesley, I continued to feed him and watch him wriggle around, then about a week later, after getting quite bored of my milky coloured pal, I noticed this rather large, fascinating creature with multiple eyes, pronged tail and looked scarily like a miniature version of those creepy thinks from Alien 2! I was so pleased, and I don't know where on earth this creature came from as he certainly wasn't Wesley. I'm quite sure of this as I saw him munching on my now-grown-quite-bigger Wesley, who resembled a flaky, gilled sperm-frying pan hybrid! I was rather excited and named him... Rudolph, and no, not after that crummy excuse for an idealistic Christmas children's luminary but after the handsome little boy from The Little Vampire (Rollo Weeks). I enjoyed his company for little more than three months until I accidently and ignorantly left the tank lid on and let him suffocate! I did ring up my boyfriend and shed a few tears as he'd become a trusty friend of ours! The conclusion to this long-winded tale is that I highly recommend these "pre-historic", tri-eyed, cannibalistic fiends anyday! <3 Enjoy the rest of your day and smile as much as possible! <3

    Its simple really, you get a packet of eggs that look like tobaco, and you pour half of them in some natural mineral water that should be inside the inclded bowl.
    Wait 24 hours and half the eggs should have hatched, your told not to feed them for the next 48 hours as they will eath the eggs. When there first hatched its hard to see them but you can see little tiny white tails swimming around, and lots of them!
    Soon after 48 hours they should now be clearly visable and you can now feed them with your food that was included.
    One of them was huge and I decided to name him Fatty, unfortanatly even when there is enough food the Triops love to eat eachother, I remember after 5 days seeing Fatty nibbling one of my Triops, I did get quite a shock seeing as he always played with them, guessing he loved to play eat tag!

    Soon they die however you still have half a pack of eggs left so you can enjoy the fun again.
    I recomend this product and children would love it, my son absoultly loved them.

    ...something other reviewers seem to have missed is that in this particular product the bag of sand allows you to hatch many generations of Triops

    Once your first batch have reached adult stage (about 2 weeks) the majority of which will be hermaphrodites that lay fertilised eggs in the sand.

    After they all die you can let the tank dry out for a month or so and then a re-filling of the same type of water used should see a whole new bunch of hatchlings.

    'Triop World' is one of the few kits to mention this in the instruction booklet AND provide the sand.
    Some other kits on the market include gravel - but I have found sand works better for getting the Triops to lay eggs in.

    This makes it especially useful as an educational tool because children can see the cycle of life right before their eyes.

    The only thing left out of this kit which would give it a 5 star rating is the lack of a mini strip thermometer.
    That would enable you to make sure the temperature is correctly maintained for the first few days - which is crucial in successful hatching of the little creatures!
