Notostraca - Tadpole Shrimp

They are very interesting. Have any hobbyists kept them?

Yes, but does it count if you don't remember much about it?

What I remember was I ordered them on a whim and they were okay. But, also at the same time I collected fairy shrimp in the wild for the first time and keeping the fairy shrimp became my passion and who knows what happened to the tadpole shrimp?

Imagine 1.5" bigash colorful brine shrimp that live and breed in freshwater! Those are fairy shrimp, Anostraca sp.


They grow in vernal pools all over North America, but they are ephemeral. The place I originally found mine, doesn't have any there now.
