Re: Taking it to the store

Ooh, you want to be careful.  Local wildlife and parks officials might
have a field day with this one.  Check you local laws first.   Otherwise,
I think it's an excellenct idea myself.  I saw a display a couple of weeks
ago of these boxed sets containing those "triops" shrimps (I think) that
are found in the dessert.  You buy the setup and the eggs hatch and you
have strange looking shrimp in your tank.  If this can work, why won't
natives?  If the laws allow, give it a try...after all the worst that can
happen is it doesn't succeed.
