Here is a list of web site that I feel offer valuable information on looking after aquatic creatures. It isn’t restricted to just sites that deal with the raising of Triops, as keeping aquatic animals is usually a wide reaching and enjoyable hobby.

For example at the moment I’ve got tanks with Triops, aquatic frogs, shrimps, snails and of course various tropical fish.

My hope is that if you’ve raised Triops successfully, you may want to move on and raise one of the many other aquatic creatures that are available to you from your local pet or aquarium shop.
