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

How do I set up triops?


The implementation should be prepared a few days before.

Please note that the tricks should be at least 2 cm, preferably 2.5 cm, for the move!

For this purpose, about 1-2 days before the actual transfer, about 1/4 - 2/4 of the rearing tank is filled with water from the main pool. Before, with a hose, some water is sucked from the breeding pool and also sucks up the mud and dirt from the ground.

After this preparation, on the day of the conversion, the water is always filled from the main pool to the breeding pool approximately half-hourly. This is then repeated 3 to 6 times and then you can release the triopse with a landing net or spoon into the main pool. If the water values ​​in the main pool are similar in the breeding basin from the hardness, one can do the whole also in about 2 hours. For this you take a bowl, which is filled first with water from the rearing pool and places the triops inside. Now some water is poured from the main pool every 20 - 30 minutes. After 2 hours the triops are ready for the move. If the room temperature deviates strongly from the water temperature, the bowl with the triops can also simply be hung in the basin during this procedure.
