Prehistoric crayfish are omnivores and not picky about their food. They spend the whole day digging in the sand, looking for food, nibbling on plants or even eating their siblings. Cannibalism is quite normal among Triops.
Triops have a very fast metabolism and have to be fed by the keeper in domestic breeding. Especially in the first days of life after hatching, attention must be paid to quality feeding. Triops do not have teeth, so they feed through the yolk sac and obtain their food from the nutrients contained in the water. Approximately 48 hours after hatching, the Triops are fed the Spirulina powder for the first time. A toothpick tip of the juvenile food is sufficient.
Decapsulated Artemia eggs as transitional food for healthy Triops
After four days of feeding with the Spirulina algae powder or the Chlorella powder, solid food should not be fed immediately. Solid food is still too big for the Triops and the Spirulina powder is no longer sufficient as food. For this reason, the Triops get hungry and cannibalism spreads. The solution is: decapsulated Artemia eggs. This product is suitable for a transitional period of ten days and has a higher nutritional value than the spirulina powder. However, it is smaller and more digestible than food sticks or granulated food, which is fed as the main food from about 14 days. Decapsulated Artemia eggs are rich in vitamins, high-quality protein and omega-3 fatty acids.
With the decapsulated Artemia eggs you create an optimal basis for strong and healthy primeval crayfish.
