Triops Newberryi Tadpole Shrimp Breeding approach
Named after its place of discovery in the west of the USA, the Triops Newberryi is a rather rare Tadpole Shrimp. Despite the warm environment, the Triops Newberryi is a slow-growing and tiny Tadpole Shrimp. It reaches a size of approximately six centimeters including its tail fork. He favours temperatures of just below 30 °Celsius.
To keep Triops Newberryi in a tank, a suitable heat source, such as a heater rod or pad, is required. He has a life expectancy of 50 to 70 days which is fairly average. The shell exhibits a beautiful tabby pattern. It develops to be clearly visible after about three weeks. His dark brown marbling on the otherwise light brown shell is his distinguishing feature.
After two to three weeks, Triops Newberryi will be able to produce their own Triops-eggs. From these Triops Newberryi cysts, new Newberryi nauplii can hatch in the future, if taken care of in a certain way.
