Triops Australiensis Queensland - Rearing and Attitude
The Queensland is a very thermophile Triops, which means that you can not raise it without a heating rod in the aquarium, because he feels only at temperatures above 28° Celsius really well. In these prehistoric crayfish, it is particularly important in the rearing that they get enough heat and light. When the eggs are exposed to optimal conditions, about 25% of the prehistoric crayfish will hatch. The fact that Australiensis Queensland likes it very warm, it grows very fast. You can really watch this Triops kind of waxing. Within two weeks, you can reach a size of four centimeters including tail fork and are then already able to bury his 50 to 70, Triopseier per day in the sand. It reaches its maximum size of up to 7 cm after about three to four weeks. Due to the warm temperatures, however, the lifespan suffers somewhat. As a rule, Australiensis Queensland will not be older than eight weeks.
Triops Australiensis Queensland - Characteristics and Optical Characteristics
On the positive side, in this Triops style, there is very little cannibalism. Australiensis Queensland is very peaceful and usually does not even touch the dead Triops. Under proper housing, even sick animals are seldom sacrificed. The Triops Queensland is characterized by its beautiful silver shimmering tank and its quite long tail. The Aussis, so you are called by fans affectionately, are extremely agile and therefore do not stick exclusively to the bottom of the aquarium, but swim lively and fast through the entire pool.
