No they are not real monkeys that live in the sea. The actualy scientific term is actually Artemia salina nyos or Artemia nyos. It is actually one of the species under the brine shrimp category, can be considered as FAIRY SHRIMP.
Mommy Nesh just bought a set of Sea Monkeys starter kit today! It has a cute aquarium and 2 packet for the starter. First she needs to stabilize the water by putting stabilizer in the aquarium filled with water. Tomorrow she will put in the eggs that will instantly hatch!
Will blog more when they hatched!
