Habitat for Triops: Water Surface Area

Oxygen should readily dissolve into the water so that Triops can breathe oxygen with ease. To ensure maximum intake of oxygen, the water surface should have sufficient area. Triops donít need too much air however since itís a living creature, it still needs air. Because of this, itís not good to use a narrow and tall container because oxygen canít dissolve easily.

Use wide neck containers instead. The aquarium tanks are among the best options available to you. If you donít have any, you can use other suitable containers.
