Sea Monkeys: Magic Crystal Beings

Yeah, I had Sea Monkeys when I was a kid, but this page that lets you announce the birth of your Sea Monkeys is scary. Equally scary is the main site that the previous page came from. -ram

u people are so crule i gues u people just don’t know that sea monkeys are living and not meant to kill. im sure that if u were a sea monkey u wouldn’t want to be killed. p.s. if u did want to be killed u are veeeeeeeeeerrrry stupid.

if ur sea monkey cage gets gunk or slime in it remove it quikly. sea monkeys can get caught in it and die.

How old are you people? Why are you debating (somewhat poorly) the life of sea monkeys? Granted that their eggs can remain viable for years before hatching – that doesn’t mean that the shrimp aren’t actually alive. That’s like waiting for bird’s eggs to hatch and then declaring the chicks are actually some trick of the mind; some fun toy that we get to raise and kill when we want to; just because it came out of an egg that existed outside of the mother for any period of time.

They are shrimp, they are alive, and it is wrong to cause any animal to expire to satisfy your boredom. Try reading a book, it might do you some good.

does anyone remember a pill looking thing that you would drop in a jar of water and in a few days you would have crystal like mountains? (Around the same time sea monkeys were at there peak)

Yes — and I had them. I think they were called “Magic Rocks” or something like that. They were actually pretty darn cool.

Sea Monkeys are and always have been marketed as “instant pets.” The emphasis on them being pets, living creatures, is stressed throughout the instructions as well.
I learned about respecting life and about being responsible by having Sea Monkeys as a kid. It also helped to start a life long interest in science. The booklets that come with the kits are very informative and encourage further reading. I worked at an aquarium (there’s that interest in science continuing) and I think the gold fish bowls were terrible, way worse than Sea Monkey kits.

Ryan November 26, 2007, 4:45 am

First you coat them in an egg wash, them dip them in your breading, and then fry them up…

Now adays you can get snails that live very well with sea monkeys. They are called coco snails and they do great job cleaning the sides of your ocean-veiwer from all that algae gunk.
