Rated 3 out of 5 by from Six creatures hatched I wish we would have known in advance that a black light was required to hatch the eggs. Six creatures and a few tiny creatures hatched by the third day. We were expecting more for the science experiment. They grew pretty big. My whole family was intrigued.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much better than previous reviews have suggested Most reviews for Carolina dried Daphnia eggs were negative, but I gave them a try, since I could not find another supplier. Furthermore, the poor reviews were a couple years old, and I was hopeful that the product had been improved. By following the instructions carefully, we eventually hatched well over 100 Daphnia. As directed, we removed Triops and fairy shrimp to a separate container to prevent predation. The Triops has become a "family pet" providing additional entertainment (and teaching opportunity) for the children. Kids as young as 5 years old found this fascinating. Adults too! Note that the Daphnia take longer to hatch and are quite small at first. (You might miss them.) They thrive in green pond water. I was able to quickly receive additional information when needed by emailing a Carolina live product specialist.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from More triops than daphnia Ordered this with the hatching kit. Ended up with more triops than daphnia, the triops ate everything including each other.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not so good This was bought for a student science project to try to have multiple specimens for an environmental impact study. We followed all the instructions. The triops that hatched ate the daphnia eggs and we had more triops than daphnia.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Daphnia I would have been happy with triops but nothing hatched at all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No daphnia hatched, only Triops. I don't recommend this product. Since no dapnia hatched, this product did not live up to expectations. Will go to another source for daphnia..

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No daphnia From this product I was able to hatch several triops and fairy shrimp but never any daphnia. If the purpose of this product is simply for children to learn about life, this product will work as there were more triops and fairy shrimp it in than even in other products designed solely for those critters. However, no daphnia ever came out of this pack and, although it might have just been a fluke, that was the sole purpose of my purchasing of this product.
