Triops Longicaudatus Multicolour

This longicaudatus tribe is characterized by beautiful colored animals. Yellow, orange and brown are the colors that give the shell a fascinating marbling. If you are interested in Triops Longicaudatus Multicolour, here is some interesting information about Triops and the care of these cute gill crabs.

The Triops Longicaudatus Multicolour is a true adaptation artist

Triops Longicaudatus Multicolor

The genus Triops is one of the oldest living species in the world. The crustacean originates from America mainly in small waters, which usually form in spring in heavy rains and often completely dry out after a few days or weeks.

Life expectancy and sexual maturity of the Triops Longicaudatus Multicolour

To ensure the survival of your species, the life cycle of this small cancer is relatively short. The life expectancy of the Triops Longicaudatus Multicolour is between 60 and 90 days. Already in the second week of life, the gill crab reaches sexual maturity. The female freshwater crab then lays several hundred cysts (permanent eggs) in the mud.

From the diapause to the slippage of the Triops Longicaudatus Multicolour

The perennial eggs have a special ability: After the water has completely dried out, the Triopseier stand out in the dry. This persistence is referred to as a diapause, which can last even several decades before the larvae of the Triops hatch from the eggs.

Only when ideal conditions and contact with water are present, the larvae (nauplii) of the Triops Longicaudatus Multicolour emerge from some of the cysts within a few hours. However, even under optimal conditions, all nauplii never hatch simultaneously. The remaining permanent eggs remain in the diapause and form, so to speak, a "reserve", from which only years or decades later Triops Longicaudatus multicolor larvae hatch.

Basic equipment for your Triops breed

  • Triops Longicaudatus Multicolour Breeding Approach
  • Feed for kittens and adults
  • Rearing tanks and larger aquariums for older Triops
  • Subsoil and decoration for your Triops basin
  • Aquarium lamp and heater for optimal water temperature
  • (Optional :) Other accessories (for example for water treatment, water test or cleaning)

Setting up a tank for Triops

Before adding the Triops Longicaudatus Multicolour breeding line to the rearing tank, you should first set up the pelvis properly so that your Triops will find optimal living conditions.

How To:

  1. Rinse the rearing tank thoroughly with clear water.
  3. Put fine sand with a grain size of 0.1 to 0.9 mm on the bottom of the pool.
  5. The layer of sand should be at least 3 inches thick to allow the Triops to dig around and bury their eggs.
  7. Now set up the aquarium lamp and the heater.
  9. Fill up the rearing tank with distilled water.
  11. (Optional :) To get Triops-friendly water quality, add the conditioner to the water. This improves the quality of the water.

Soon the first Triops Longicaudatus Multicolour hatch

Once your Triops breeding tank has been set up and run in, you can put the Triops Longicaudatus Multicolour Breeding Lug into the pool as described in the Breeding Guide. Within 48 hours, the first nauplii hatched from the small eggs and developed within 24 hours. However, it will take some time for the Triops Longicaudatus Multicolour to reach full size.
