Just add spring water to the dormant eggs in this kit and grow your own live culture of mixed crustacean including Daphnia, Triops, and fairy shrimp! 

Daphnia have compound eyes, a second antennae, and a pair of abdominal setae. They have a transparent body and make excellent subjects under a microscope to observe a heart beating. They can also be used to feed hydra. 

Triops have a large shielded "head", thorax covered with an oval shield-shaped shell and a small third median eye, and a narrower, forked tail.

Fairy Shrimp have 10 pairs of leg-like appendages called phyllopods used for swimming. They swim slowly and belly-side up.
