    This kit takes a while to see results, but be patient. We waited about a week or so and you could barely see the little guys but they were there. At first they were just a tiny spec and then they grew and grew. We had about three or four that were pretty good size, then went to two, then one day the other one was gone. ?? don't know what happened, we didn't see him dead or anything.. it was just gone! I know they said that they eat each other, but I don't know how to explain the big one being gone. All in all, it was super cool though! We are planning on buying another kit to try again! I will say that we kept the aquarium under a lamp for most of the day to keep it as warm as possible.. that may have helped them grow.

    While this kit states it includes triop eggs, what we hatched is definitely not. We were able to hatch only two animals; BOTH of which were fairy shrimp. One died relatively quickly. There is no guarantee included with buying this kit. The tank is small, and not stable; it is very easy to tip. The included white sand looks pretty when you add it to the tank. However, as soon as you add the eggs and the plant matter they are mixed with, say goodbye to a clean looking tank. Debris floats at the top, sticks to the sides of the tank, and the heavier pieces sink to the bottom. There is no way to clean up the mess.
    The instructions for the pelleted food state to crush the pellet before adding it to the tank. This is an impossible task. The food is very hard and requires an adult and hammer to break it.

        Same as everyone said; we have one fairy shrimp and some little floaty things like sand fleas. Definitely no Triops. And no guarantee. Not even a mailing address to send complaints to or ask for more eggs. I have a feeling the company already knows this is an issue.

                      The box was sealed but did not contain the eggs or the food. It was just the tank, lid, sand, background, and instructions. Also, the tank itself is about half the size of the total box, much smaller than I was expecting. Now I have to drive all the way back to the store for a refund.

                                I bought this as a gift for my 10 yr old and nothing ever hatched! We stuck it out for 3-4 wks and nothing, what a waste of money. He was very disappointed as was I.

                                  I bought this kit for the office and after reading the other reviews, I wasn't really expecting them to hatch. BUT THEY HATCHED!! AND NOW THEY'RE EATING EACH OTHER!!

                                  Packaging looks a little lame though. So if you have your own aquarium at home, just ditch the kit and put the little guys in a real bowl.

                                      You have to use distilled water or boil water for 25 minutes then let it get to room tempeture before adding half the bag of eggs.I put the water in a sterlized more stable container and sat in front of window with no breeze, only sunshine.I also sit container on heating pad on low so water can get warm for them.they grow fast and begin at the size of the tip of a pen n are white .so u may not see them for a couple of days.try a magnifying glass.but they r really cool to watch.

                                          My daughter was so excited about these (she loved her sea monkeys, and these would be even bigger). We added half the eggs, as directed, and waited. Nothing. A week later I added the other half. Nothing. It's been over 2 weeks, I have an empty tank and a teary daughter.
