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.
. The Aqua Dragons hatch instantly tho for a while it will be impossible to see them without either a microscope or holding the tank to a light source. After just one day we were able to see tiny white dots swimming about and these are the baby dragons.
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,
Ryan and Jordanna are going to have lots of fun caring for their new Aqua pets. They will be fascinated watching them grow day by day. 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.
World Alive are based in Spain and develop and manufacture a great range of fun educational products related to nature to raise awareness of the living world of insects, animals and plants. They sell some great kits to suit both adults and children.
