Things were indeed looking grim for my triops community. I was supposed to see signs of life after 48 hours or so but it had been five days and nothing had happened. I was finally ready to call it a day and turn off the light when I saw some movement at the bottom of the jar. I saw two baby triops swimming around! They are very small and white and only noticable due to their wriggling about. Nonetheless, they have defied the odds and I am now a proud pet owner!
