Still can't understand why the US had apparently no law against lying advertisement back then.

I think it was before the time period when people realized they could sue eachother over trivial things for money.

I don't know Anon, my country's had laws saying you can't lie in your advertising for a while.

Except they do hatch right when you add the eggs if you set up the water correctly. I've had a ton of those things. Sometimes it would take a little more time to hatch if you messed up the instructions or if you didn't clean out the tank beforehand.
>>
>>2164572
yeah sure, the fully developed nauplia are just gonna sit for years in the eggs to instantly jump out as soon as water touches them

Wasn't me. I'd have gone for the "trainable", "pet" and the pics.
Or oh, the submarines they sold for kids.
Reading the old FF comics really show me insane things.

You fucking what?

Brine shrimp eggs (which are what Sea Monkeys are) undergo cryptobiosis when conditions are unfavorable. The eggs are then suspended in animation until they find water that is favorable enough for them to hatch. (This is why they make you wait 24 hours to condition before adding eggs.)

No one said anything about fully developed shrimp coming out of the eggs. I don't see where you got this idea from in the first place.

>>2164525
Your quote:
>in ONE SECOND your AMAZING Sea-Monkeys actually COME TO LIFE! Yes, they hatch instantly, right before your eyes

This doesn't have anything to do with adult eggs of any sort, just eggs.

>>2164511
You, the same anon, noted they are "lying in their advertising" but the company actually followed through on these. (If anything, these were the most truthful claims they've made ever.) You say that it fails to 1) hatches instantly, 2) comes to life, and that fails to do this 3) before one's eyes. Which the Sea Monkey brand actually does ALL of the above successfully if you followed the instructions correctly --like I've been saying this whole time.

Your claim is bullshit.

Articulate yourself so we can have a proper discussion on this korean imageboard.

What do Nauplia have to do with Brine Shrimp when it comes to false advertising?
>>
>>2164613
Since you are too stupid to know shit about brine shrimp despite supposedly having kept them, I'll educate you.

The larvae of brine shrimps are called nauplia. These things (pic related) are what hatches out of the eggs and further develop into the adult shrimps. Now, the advertisemen(and you dumb moron) claims these spring out of the egg the moment you dip them into the water.

Now, with a tiny bit of understanding on how the development of these animals even works, you'd realize that this is complete and utter bullshit. The eggs you get delivered are all undergoing diapause to even survive outside of the water. The embryos in these eggs have not even begun developing, because in their natural habitat they might stay dry for dozens of years.
However, when the eggs enter the water again, the embryos will start their development.

Now, according to you dumbshit, the hatch-ready larvae are just sitting in a potentially dry wasteland, waiting for ages to hatch, with their only source of sustenance being the yolk in the egg. This is exactly how supposed to work?

kek
you dipshit, if you're going to "educate" "stupid" people you shouldn't start off with a wrong statement right off the bat.

They're called "nauplii."
we could pretend you just hit the wrong key, but you've said it at least twice now and even found a pic with the wrong spelling too.

didn't read the rest of your post, I assume it's just as full of ass-facts as your first sentence of "education."

I'm not a native english speaker and I translated it wrong, but I guess it's better than being a retarded american.

>>2164635
I'm not the anon you were arguing with.

I just read your filename and found it funny.
so I read a bit more and busted out laughing.

>I'm not a native english speaker and I translated it wrong
fair enough.
made me laugh is all.

this anon is 100% right

>>2164600
this stupid retard thinks he is smart, but isn't

I think you mixed things you read.
Eggs DO NOT hatch immediately
BUT if the water quality is right, the Adult females drop live nauplii instead of eggs

please kill yourself, fuckin dipshit

if you don't believe me, learn to read.
I breed these little shits for my fish, So don't tell me I'm fucking wrong.

and now shut your stupid fucking mouth and don't ever try to defend your bullshit again, you absolute prick

someone had to say it

Red pill time.

>A colony is started by adding the contents of a packet labelled "Water Purifier" to a tank of water. This packet contains salt, water conditioner, and some brine shrimp eggs.[5] After 24 hours, this is augmented with the contents of a packet labelled "Instant Life Eggs", containing more eggs, yeast, borax, soda, salt, some food and sometimes a dye.[5] The Sea-Monkeys that hatched from the original eggs seem to appear instantly.[

>>2164822
You're the only retard here.

My post was laughing at anon for using the wrong word while calling other people stupid.

He claimed it was because he isn't a native English speaker and he translated wrong.

which is even more stupid since the word is latin and is the same in any language.

but retards will be retards.

like you, mistaking me for the other poster even though I didn't take up any of his arguments and said that I'm not him. That's just retarded. Such a stupid mistake. Didn't even read the thing.

Is it possible/realistic for me to grow shrimp/lobsters/crabs at home to later eat?
>>
>>2164952
no
>>
>>2164957
Why?
>>
>>2164965
most marine crustaceans have planctonic larval stages, which makes them pretty hard to breed.

Lobsters need pretty cold water too
