Home-Grown Are Always Best

We’d start with triops, lovely little crustacean-ettes that have been around since Triassic days. You pick the Ghost Triops, see-through honeys, or the larger Gigantic Triops (gigantic among lesser beasts). In both cases you get eggs, baby and adult food, and a pipette. You add a bright light source, bottled natural spring water and a small tank. They hatch in a day or three, are full grown in a month or so, and have a life-cycle of up to 90 days.  Ages 8+.
