Music: something appropriately funerial
It is time to admit to myself the horrible truth-my Triops are not going to hatch. The main culprit seems to be the temperature of the water. The jar I used is close to a window and since there is no heater inside the water it never warmed up to the proper temperature.
My options seem to be either wait for better weather or go to a pet store and buy a fishbowl and a heater. I think I might splurge on some proper equipment as I think they would be suitably inspirational.
