Triops Cancriformis Tadpole Shrimp Breeding approach mix

Triops Cancriformis find their origin in Europe. They are can bred easily and without heater elements, as they feel just as comfortable in cooler temperatures ranging around 22 ° Celsius. Due to the low temperatures, however, the Cancriformis grow much more slowly than other Triops-species. Nevertheless, and perhaps even due to the slightly lower temperatures, their life expectancy is often somewhat higher than that of the heat-loving Triops-species.

Triops Cancriformis are characterized by a relatively short tail and a tabby pattern on their shell. As opposed to other Triops-species which swim through their tank in a very agile and cheerful manner, Cancriformis present themselves as rather quiet contemporaries. They love it to just dig in the sand and are very peaceful Triops. Cannibalism occurs very rarely amongst this Triops-species.

Cancriformis release their first Triops-eggs into the sand after approximately three weeks. From these eggs, new Cancriformis will emerge. What you need to do for that can be found here: how to properly prepare Triops-eggs

Bringing Triops Cancriformis in your living room are an enrichment for every household.

5 from 5 Great hatching level, and beautiful animals

This is not my first triops breeding try, and experience is much better than other tries.

I ordered the minimum 50 eggs kit, and after 8 days I have almost 20 full shaped near adult triops. In my previous experiencies the number of triops born and surviving to this size was much lower. Curioulsy I have found that I even have one that seems to be not cancriformis but longicaudatus :)
