    These things actually hatched. From the other comments, they probably didn’t raise them correctly. My triops had lived for about 6 weeks.

    These things stink!!! mine hatched and died 3 days later!!! and one of them ate the other and i fed them well!!! :(

  4. ElleM says:

    We bought a triops kit, nothing hatched. Sent away for replacement eggs, nothing hatched. Not impressed. We followed the instructions to a T.
