Triops will eat anything and are not picky about food. Cannibalism is quite normal for Triops, so they will sometimes eat their siblings as well as plants and other food.
As Triops have a very fast metabolism, they have to be fed by the breeder in domestic breeding. Triops do not have teeth, so they feed through the yolk sac in the first days of life. They obtain their food from the nutrients and bacteria contained in the water. Triops are fed with spirulina powder for the first time about 48 hours after hatching. A toothpick tip of the juvenile food is sufficient for this.
High quality food sticks for healthy Triops
After four days of feeding with the spirulina algae powder or the chlorella powder, do not immediately switch to solid food. This is still too big and the spirulina powder is no longer sufficient as food. To prevent cannibalism, feed decapsulated Artemia eggs for a transitional period of ten days. Only after this, i.e. after about 14 days, are food sticks used. Our floating food sticks are designed for species-appropriate feeding, contain natural ingredients and ensure the Triops’ well-being. The food sticks contain sufficient dietary fibre as well as vitamins and microelements.
With our high-quality floating food sticks you create an optimal basis for strong and healthy primeval crayfish.
