Triops already lived 220 million years ago and are thus the oldest still living animal species

How I harvest Triops-eggs?

It is sad, though, that the Triops, who have been known since their birth, bless their temporal, but they have cloned themselves to 1000s.
The eggs are buried in the sand very difficult to recognize.
If all triops have died, you should drain the water and allow the sand to air dry for about 3 - 6 weeks. Now the eggs are ready for a preparation (airtight for about 2 weeks in the freezer) and you can then put them back again and everything starts again from the front. If the dried sand is sealed in plastic bags, the eggs can be stored in this condition for up to 30 years or even longer.
For those who have the highest possible yield during the egg harvest, I recommend to regularly remove the sand with the eggs when the triops are still alive. This can be done when the triops have a size of approx. 3 - 4 cm. It is best to use deep spoons or coffee spoons. Every 3 - 4 days you can re-harvest. This is advisable, because the laid eggs often slip in the water of the parents and about 2 weeks after the laying or earlier. By the way, the triops usually lay the eggs in the same place. One must therefore often observe, where the Triops dig up and then there remove the sand regularly (1-2 times a week).
