Back when this was something I really wanted to do and kept failing a couple of friends actually sent me SeaMonkey kits. One of those is the one I previously got to work for me, and one was sitting unused. So, I decided to start a new family of SeaMonkies with the new kit.
Its going to be in the mars aquarium of one of my past failed attempts. I started it a bit ago and just fed them for the first time yesterday. So far so good =) 3 years ago
How I did it: It took me 3 tries to get it right. The first time I overfed them, the second time they never hatched at all, and the 3rd time...well they are still going strong Read how I did it… 3 years ago
I got the kit in the mail yesterday and last night at midnight I put some room temperature bottled water and the #1 packet of water purifier into the little moon tank. I went to a site that had more in depth instructions than what comes with the kit because I accidentally killed the first ones I tried back in january I think because I didnt understand the directions. So, at noon on Friday I can do the next step. I’ll update then. 4 years ago
How I did it: Easy to follow instructions were included in my starter kit. Feed them when their tank water looks clear. And other than that I just care for them as I would any other pet. Read how I did it… 4 years ago
They’re doing well at one week old. 4 years ago

oh, how i remember those ads in the back of my Archie Comics magazine! And eagerly awaiting the arrival of the magic sea-monkeys in the mail…!
and then that awful sour smell of brine shrimp in a mason jar a month later….6 years ago
im going to try and get them in england when i go this weekend 6 years ago
I was so young then and still believed in magic and I even got a magnifying glass to see if they really looked like the pictures they had on the back of my Archie comics 6 years ago
i changed my mind…. sea monkeys are boring. they all died for no reason and then sombody hatched some eggs and i have more again… but ive completely lost interest. 6 years ago
they’ve hatched and are starting to get all big.
they are actually sort of cute, considering they are brine shrimp.
i guess the trick is to barely ever feed them and pour the tank water into a container and back into a tank a couple times a week to get oxygen into the water. horray!
lets see how long they last. 7 years ago
i have having UNBELIEVABALY great difficulty buying sea monkeys. i have tried all pet shops, aquariums and toy stores! i wanted to buy some for me and my friend and that was supposed to be for her b-day in january!! im stuck! whre where where????!!! 7 years ago
well, i got my tank today. i ordered it from discoverthis.com and it came quickly which made me happy… but now im waiting 24-30 hours for the water purifier to “prepare the proper formula balance for the baby eggs to hatch and grow.” lame! 7 years ago
