While in this state—also known as cryptobiosis—the animals are in a protective cyst-like casing, until water is added. What could be more remarkable than that?
Sea-Monkey ad circa You had to provide your own goldfish bowl. They have potbellies and skinny arms and legs so they're not really physically fit.
Some wore scaly breast plates; others sported capes. The doors that weren't open to begin with slammed shut in my face. These were marketed directly to kids, bypassing parental authority, but also parental cautions.
And that strategy was successful. Now the formulation of the chemistry, the vigor of the Sea Monkeys themselves, is better than ever. And if you run your finger tip across the tank, they will often gravitate to it.
Any kid who had Sea-Monkeys knows that you had to add the nutrient packet to prep your tap water, wait 24 hours, and then add the packet of eggs.
This invention provides for making an aquatic life habitat for the hatching of brine shrimp in tap water and divides the materials that are necessary into two groups. The first a water purifier and conditioner group comprising a number of salts necessary for the creation of the proper saline environment including also a drying agent such as calcium chloride for maintaining the group in a dry condition, an oxidizing agent such as sodium thiosulphate and some brine shrimp eggs.
This first group is added to the tap water and allowed to stand for 24 to 36 hours at room temperature. The second group is comprised of additional salts for the saline environment, food for the hatched brine shrimp, additional brine shrimp eggs, a drying agent such as dried Epsom salt and a water-soluble dye.
The second group is added to the aged water medium whereby the dye colors in the water give the hatched brine shrimp of the first group easier visibility, thereby giving the impression of instant life.
Sea-Monkey sets that included tanks notably Sea-Monkey Ocean Zoo and Sea-Monkey Circus became available in stores in the late s; soon there was a slew of other sea-monkey accessoriesincluding Sea-Monkey Speedway and Sea-Monkey Fox Hunt abovewhich debuted in the s.

They can fertilize their own eggs, a process known as parthenogenesis; when the eggs hatch, the shrimp are tiny—just about as big as the period at the end of this sentence—and can grow up to 2 inches long.
On October 29,the Space Shuttle Discovery carried some very special cargo into space: Astronaut John Glenn —who, at 77, was participating in a study on the effects of space on the elderly—and million Sea-Monkey eggs.
The eggs spent nine days in space and, when they were hatched eight weeks later, the creatures showed no ill effects from their journey.
Educational Insights commemorated the trip with a special edition aquarium built according to NASA design above. The Pixies and Liz Phair have name-dropped them in songs.
Brooke Shields is reportedly a fan. Not bad for brine shrimp!
