Fun with “AQUA DRAGONS” (world alive)

Aqua Dragons are Live aquatic creatures which children can hatch and bring to life in the underwater world tank. Aqua Dragons are a species called Artemia Salina and belong to the Crustacean family. They have been around since prehistoric time, their eggs are preserved waiting to come into contact with water to hatch. They can grow up to 2cm and live for six months.

Ryan and Jordanna were ecstatic when they were sent some Aqua Dragons underwater world sets fromWorld Alive. The kits contained everything they needed to hatch their own Aqua Dragon World.

Each kit contains a tank, eggs, food, oxygen pumper and a stirrer/feeder. It’s a very easy simple process to set up, you fill the tank with water (bottled or cool boiled is best) then add the eggs and wait.

Two days after hatching we put some food in using the food supplied and measuring spoon. They only need a very small scoop and only need feeding every 2-3 days. It’s also a good idea to use the small oxygen pumper daily which is very easy to do.
After five days and using a magnifier or light source we can clearly make out the shape of the Aqua Dragons. We can see they have tails and just about make out a head tho they are still very tiny,

Apparently they have three eyes which is really strange and when bigger they can be seen playing and can even reproduce which is just fascinating considering they started as powder. I will put some more pics up once they get a little bigger.

    I think that what you said made a bunch of sense.
    But, what about this? what if you typed a catchier post title?
    I ain’t saying your information is not good., but what if you added a post title that makes people desire more?

    kinda plain. You could peek at Yahoo’s front page and watch how
    they create post headlines to get people interested.
    You might add a video or a pic or two to grab readers excited about everything’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it would bring your blog a little bit more interesting.
