StevieT's Sea Monkeys on Mars Experience

285 posts in this topic

I would first like to thank all of those on N-R for getting me this far in the sea monkey hobby. I can't believe how much there is to learn about keeping these wonderful animals. This forum is a wealth of knowledge and I wouldn't have gotten this far without each and every one of you.

 

As a birthday gift I received the Sea Monkeys® on mars 12 oz AIO aquarium from my brother in Hollywood, CA. It came UPS today and I am so excited to set it up. I know patience is so important in this hobby and I hope I can learn some because I would like instant Sea Monkeys!!!!

 

 

 

Step One:

 

Per the amazing directions that came with this AIO tank, I added water (RO even though they didn't specify such) and the water conditioner. I am not sure what that does but it has to be more than removing chemicals in the water. I was going to skip it since I am using RO water, but I figured why risk this huge investment I have just made.

 

Step Two: Wait 24 hours to add the eggs...... well that will be tomorrow and I am not in the office then so we can add those Monday or Sunday if I choose to come in here to work on the inTank business.

 

Pics as of now:

As you can see the tank includes a space man floating around, I don't know what he is doing but I am sure it involves super secret sceintific business

that is a sweet AIO setup. are you gonna do any mods? what about a protein skimmer? lighting upgrades?

i think you could build a pretty sweet media rack for that 12oz tank :rolleyes:

After some exploring I have found something sticking out the rear of my spaceman. I hope it doesn't compromise his vacuum lock, I am sure NASA knows what they are doing on Mars. Or maybe it just feels good to him, I don’t know what is going on in his personal lift at this time.

well per the amazing directions, it does say that 78* is the ideal temperature for hatching. So I think a small heater should be in order. If you would READ this forum you would know that a skimmer in not needed on such a small tank, jezz get with it :D

 

There may be a future business with a media rack in the future, or a playground for my monkeys to spend time on as they exercise and grow big.

 

Because you do know the ultimate fate for them! nom nom nom

I have a similar tank and I was thinking of adding a yellow tang or an octopus (they have small ones with little blue dots at the LFS). Would I have to add a sump?

no, but you may want to add a few more spacemen, I hear they do a great job cleaning the water

EDIT: On closer examination...I think I see something back there in the photo. Maybe my diver is the spacemans very good friend?

I am so glad to see someone supporting tank breeding for these guys, wild capture leaves over 2.4 trillion sea monkey orphans a year. :(

VERY cool! My daughter had a couple of the smaller sea monkey tanks and they were her babies.. LOL One came with a little key chain and she would suck them up in the syringe thingy and take them for walks!

What a great idea. If I had that when I was a kid, I would have been SO excited. I remember when I thought sea monkeys were magic.

LMAO!!! That's exactly what popped into my head when I saw this thread.

 

Steve, don't forget to add the sea-men, lol.
