It's awesome to watch the sea monkeys grow and mature. I didn't use this for it's educational value, I am just a big kid and it's brought me a lot of entertainment. You may need to get the other food and supplies from the official sea monkey company to ensure they live long lives.
I fell in love with sea monkies after seeing the Rugrats episode with them as a small child. As a college student, though, they are a fantastically simple pet yet will still be entertaining enough.
Just make sure you follow the instructions exactly and don't do anything stupid!!! These are easy enough for a five year old to hatch; I honestly think the biggest problem is not spilling them!
My best advice: Research how natural brine shrimp behave and are cared for.
Make sure whatever container (as this product does NOT include one) you select is SANITARY! They must be clean but not washed with soap (or they'll die). Also do not use a huge aquarium or they will get lost, or worse, sucked up by the filter!
Boil the water before you put it into the container/tank.
AERATE THE WATER OFTEN!! This is what so many people do not do, but baby sea monkies use great quantities of oxygen so it is important.
I added a HEATING PAD under my sea monkey home to maintain an average temperature (during the winter nights).
No Sea Monkeys
We tried this three times and never had success. The included guarantee for two years is useless. They will gladly send you a replacement, as long as you pay the shipping costs. Why bother? You pay for something that doesn't work and then have to pay again to replace a faulty product? I don't recommend this product. It's sure to bring disappointment.
