Triops cancriformis eggs are renowned for their resilience and ease of hatching, often requiring just a splash of dechlorinated water to spring to life within 24 to 72 hours. These eggs have a built-in survival mechanism that allows them to remain dormant in dry conditions for extended periods, ensuring a high hatch rate when introduced to a suitable environment. Once hatched, the triops grow incredibly fast, reaching near-adult sizes within a couple of weeks, making them one of the quickest and simplest aquatic pets to raise from egg to adult. Triops cancriformis make for a unique and relatively hassle-free pet, ideal for those looking to dip their toes into keeping pet invertebrates or simply wishing to own a living piece of natural history. These little triops are low maintenance are highly adaptable and not particularly fussy about their living conditions. You won’t need a huge, complicated setup—a simple tank of around 1 to 2 gallons (4-8 litres) can suffice. They also don’t require an elaborate diet; triops food available in pet stores, along with occasional vegetable scraps like carrots or potatoes, will keep them content. Triops cancriformis are particularly fascinating because they can grow relatively large compared to other species, reaching lengths of up to 2 to 4 inches (5 to 10 cm). The name ‘cancriformis’ actually translates to ‘crab-shaped’. Having only minimal care requirements and a fascinating history as living fossils, Triops cancriformis are perfect for anyone—from kids to adults—interested in keeping a pet that is both easy to look after and endlessly interesting. Triops cancriformis are a top choice.

Ordering pets online can be nerve-wracking, we get it. Our 7-Day live guarantee is our way to ease nerves over the purchasing process.

We’re confident in the quality husbandry, shipping, and packaging of our livestock. On the rare occasion an animal arrives in poor condition, we will provide credit for the cost of that animal. If all animals in the shipment arrive in poor condition, we will also provide credit for the postage.

We try to make it as easy as possible to help any unwell critters, and ensure you can get your money back. There are a couple of steps to go through before a refund can be issued.

If you’ve received an unwell animal in the mail:

1. If it is safe to do so, (your pet is not medically significant or harmful) please remove the animal from its transport container, ideally onto your hand. We ask this as invertebrates, particularly insects, are experts at ‘playing dead’.

2. To provide you with the best advice going forward and to confirm the condition of your pet, we kindly request a short video of the animal in question before your refund can be processed. This can be uploaded on our ‘live guarantee refunds form’, or you can email it straight to us.

3. We typically respond within 24 hours, but please allow 1-3 working days for a response. Once it’s confirmed that you are eligible for a refund, we’ll get process the credit to your account.

We’ll need this information to reach us within 7 days after you’ve received your pet. We cannot provide any live guarantee to animals that have been refused, returned, or not collected.
