Free fairy shrimp eggs anyone?

After my failed bout with daphnia, I've been staring at this vial of eggs....

Does any brave soul want to venture into the scary lands of fairy shrimp hatching?
They are fresh water shrimp...
like brine shrimp.

They also lay dormant over winter eggs, that needs to be dried out thoroughly before being hatched again.

Let me know if you want it, took 6 weeks to ship from thailand... LOL

I'm usually around FIT in manhattan, or woodside queens.

Do they reproduce? Seems like a difficult little critter.

I thought the winter eggs were only laid at the end of the season. Are these a specific breed that only does eggs that need to be dried out and rehydrated? I'd try either way.

I read upon them online, and it seems that it is very hard to encourage them to lay the summer eggs. Plus they have quite a short lifespan XD
it's probably more fun than practical. I'll save them for you for Oct 3r then

XD here are the raising instructions from the seller

couldn't add the ebay link, so if you delete that space in "ebay" it should get you there

I didn't get any of the "special food" but it's probably just algae derived...
