FS: assassin snails and triops eggs

Postby LilGreenPuffer on Sun Jan 22, 2012 7:21 pm

Hey, I need to unload three assassin snails and some T. newberryi eggs.

The assassin snails are $2 each, and shipping is $12 - they come in a Styrofoam-insulated Priority box with a heat pack.

The eggs are $10 shipped (or $7 if you get the assassins too), and they come with some powdered high-protein food for the hatchlings and a hatching guide. They look similar to T. longicaudatus and their care is identical. Loads of info here (viewtopic.php?f=7&t=21532&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&hilit=triops) and at my site (there's a link in my signature).

Triops make excellent puffer food. They're as easy to hatch as brine shrimp, but are the size of adult ghost shrimp. They're incredibly easy to raise, they grow quickly, and they can be fed off at any age/size. T. newberryi gets up to about 2". They don't require filtration, just regular water changes and possibly aeration, and only need a heater if it's cold; stable temperatures aren't too important to them. They'll eat anything that used to be alive, plant or animal, or anything that's sold as fish/shrimp food. If you keep some triops through adulthood, they'll lay thousands of eggs, and you can hatch more. You don't have to hatch them immediately after purchase. The longest recorded diapause period in captivity was 27 years, and they hatched good as new.

They also make really fun pets!

I'll cut you a deal if you want to buy a lot of eggs for puffer food, as long as you actually use them as puffer food and don't resell them in small packages/at a profit.

Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man whom you may have seen, and ask yourself, if the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him or her. Will she gain anything by it? Will it restore her to a control over her own life and destiny? In other words, will it lead to freedom for the hungry and spiritually starving millions? Then you will find your doubts and your self melt away."

I'll probably have them, but you could also get them now and keep them as long as you want. Longest delay between laying and hatching on record is 27 years - no reduction in hatch rate. :)

I didn't know you were a member! What's your username?

I'm so rarely on there during the semester... Good thing I have Kannachan13 to help.
