This is my lastest E-Book for sale in January ^ _ ^ , This article was
written to express the feeder’s experience about triops in simple style,
friendly, and easy to read. Furthermore, the knowledge about how to feed the
triops is attached either in the article.and this is some sample of this E-book ,
if you need to see it ^ _ ^
Triops Longicaudatus, The Amazing Crustacean.

For the first time when I saw triops when I went to Chatu Chak market, at that time, it was considered new for me. I had never known it before. Then, suddenly, I felt impress and thought that there will be something interesting for sure because it was so attractive (my personal opinion). In fact, I was impressed in its enthusiastic swimming movements and intending sand-digging as if its origin’s job is digger. I felt relaxed, relieved my stress, relieved my bore of mob, politics, moneyless, rain-falling, and etc. At that time, I didn’t have any knowledge about triops, so after I knew the name, I used “Google”, one of popular search engine, and I could obtain my knowledge about it. Triops or Tadpole Shrimp is small crustacean of the family Branchiopod, relatives of crabs, lobsters, and crayfish. From the outside appearance, triops’ shape is alike horseshoes or king crab if compared to the animals but smaller but there were thin armor around its body. It uses fins and tail to swim. In some species, we could identify the triops by their sex through the length of tail. In the nature worldwide, there are 15 kinds of triops in Southern part of North America, some parts of Africa,
Australia, Japan, and . They could reproduction in
various weather condition; very hot and cold. Moreover, It can be found in Russia South America, Hawaii, New Caledonia, along to ,
land of giants turtles. In some regions of Galapagos Island Asia,
there also have triops.
According to the color of triops, generally, indifferent species, the color are green, brown, red-brown, or blacken tone. There are some species which the color is dark bluesky, but only few percent. For instance, Triops cancriformis simplex , most is 1 – 3 inches long, but 4 inches or more in Africa and
Triops was identified and known in 1732. At that time, the scientific name is
Apus. Later, the name was changed to triops, which means "Three-eye
God". Oops, sorry, it means "three-eye alike" in 1958. In fact,
the third eye is the part of the body called Dorsal organ, long section bar,
and carapace is flat which cover 2 of 3 parts of thorax. There are 2 – 3 appendages
from abdomen. Triops have 35 – 70 pairs of fin for swimming and 2 big teeth ,Although
it is frighten and would like to swim around our fingers, it cannot harm us for
sure. Don’t be frightened.
Triops can eat many kinds of food, started from Lemma sp., moss, bacteria, protozoa (amazing), along to living things in naturewhich is smaller that it. It is the main rival of fairy shrimp, mosquito larva, and water flea. But “!@*& #@!$%& !$@#^*” not long, during triops are finding food, birds and frog will happy to eat triops too. It’s true. It’s ecosystem, small animal eat (dead) big animal, or else big animal eat smaller. However, along to the policy of small aquatic animals and weed extermination, especially in
, triops are used to
exterminate the weed in the rice field. The existence of Triops tell us that
there are many small animals which can live, such as a little frog:) because
they eat triops, important foundation of Potein nutrient. However, although
triops were eaten by many living things, they can spread out and grow through
the stream or water source by many living things. For example, triops’ eggs may
stick with mud on the bird’s legs. And, when the bird move to find the new
place, the eggs will be unleashed from the mud on the bird’s legs and disperse
from one place to another. So intelligence.... Japan
The bark of the egg is called cryst. Cryst is impossibly durable to the weather condition, rather than human body. Cryst can stand for the heat up to 98 degree!!! Or nearly boiled water. And after baked at the same temperature, it can be “hatched” in the water.... Oh, impossible, but it’s true. Moreover, cryst can stand to the cold weather very well. And, the egg can be stored for hatch up to 15 years!! (some books state 20 years). That is the reason why triops can live for a long time from Triassic even if there is no development. Scientists then give the name of triops “alive fossil”.....
