Here be monsters!

Harry had a Triop World kit for his birthday. Being the geeks that we are, we decided to setup a webcam next to the tank and capture images every minute or so. On Sunday we added the water and half the pack of eggs and plant waste as instructed. By Monday evening there were quite a few barely visible creatures swimming around. By Tuesday evening it was possible to just about distinguish the different kinds of creature – several triops, a few shrimp and some water fleas. As the week went on, the number of creatures gradually decreased until this afternoon there was just a single triop who had eaten the last shrimp!
