The Triops Longicaudatus gonochoric is a species related to the Longicaudatus.

Within two weeks the Longicaudatus gonochoric is able to lay its own eggs. It needs a temperature range of about 24 ° Celsius, like the normal Longicaudatus.
The difference to the normal Longicaudatus is that the gonochoric has a longer tail, develops a greenish color over time and that this Triopsart is two-sexed.
For a breeding of these prehistoric crayfish it is absolutely necessary to place a lamp over the breeding tank, only in this way a good slippage can be guaranteed. Daylight on the windowsill is not enough for a decent hatching rate.
You can breed this Triopsart with distilled, as well as with brook water. We recommend brook water because it already contains microorganisms that help the nauplii survive in the first few days.
These prehistoric crabs are well suited as first pets for children, as they take responsibility for an animal for the first time. Due to the short lifespan of 2 – 3 months, no strong bond is built up and with the help of the Triopseier, which have put the primeval crayfish in your short life, you can start again a Triopszucht.
