Gross, right? They look nothing like the cute little drawings on the box.
So, I'm thinking, "What are these things, exactly?" I mean, all we know is that they are easy to grow on your own. They eat some kind of special fish food that comes with the kit. Then what? How long do they live? According to the website, they have been scientifically engineered to live "longer than ever before" - approx. 2 yrs. I don't know if I want to take care of some weird alien-bug for two years. H is all excited about it, though. So that's cool. I just hope she doesn't get weirded out by them. I just hope I don't get weirded out by them! Because I'm sure I'll be the one taking care of these things.
Well, we prepped the tank this morning, so tomorrow we will add the eggs and sometime within the next week we should have baby sea monkeys swimming around. I'll be sure to post pics as we go! Wish us luck!
