Do not be alarmed! I know I'm a little behind on the Sea-Monkey reports, but it's not because of anything catastrophic.
To be honest, the Ocean-Zoo is looking a little rough these days. The walls and floor are covered with large, Kelly-green spots of what I can only assume is algae. It looks moldy and gross, but the Sea-Monkeys do not seem to care.
The only easily visible Sea-Monkey left is a surprisingly long-lived female. However, there are still lots of babies in the tank, and many are can now be seen from a few feet away if you stop dead and really concentrate.
I have seriously cut back on feedings, partly because of the vigorous algae growth and partly because I'm afraid I was feeding them to death. According to the handy-dandy "Official Sea-Monkey Handbook," green algae is beneficial to the Sea-Monkeys as a food source and oxygen-producer, so I'm sure they're in no danger of starving.
The adult female Sea-Monkey appears healthy and vigorous, but you just never know. She spends the majority of her time grubbing around at the bottom of the tank. Sometimes in the morning I think she might be dead until I see the plume of tank muck she stirs up while she's hunting for the perfect molecules of algae for breakfast.
The babies range in size from about 1.5mm down to "tiny little speck." The larger ones are already wide at the front, tapering to a straight little tail at the back. They're all whitish in color - I haven't used the "Red Magic" vitamins lately.
So that's the latest Sea-Monkey saga. I have high hopes for this new crop of youngsters. They will carry the torch for their fallen ancestors (many of whom are still enhancing the topography with their withered corpses). Try to enjoy your lunch.
