Sea Monkey Journal- day 10

Disappointing.

Though I have grown a couple dozen Sea Monkeys, they have not begun construction on their castle yet, nor are they having any parties. They just float around in their little tank, twitching and not doing much of anything.

Okay, they are young, I'll give them that. Maybe they don't know what to do at this point. It's just, I figured that by now, one would emerge as the leader. I'd know him right away, of course. Because of the crown, naturally.

Sea Monkeys have been around since 1960. They aren't really very exciting so why do people keep buying them? That's what I'm waiting to find out. Something cool must be about to happen any day now, right? According to the website, they can grow to be 3/4" long! Okay, that's kind of creepy, actually.

WHAT? I need these!

What are Sea-Diamonds?
Sparkling, non-toxic gem-like crystals that Sea-Monkeys use to play and build caves with. Over time, they actually float, suspended in the water like mysterious floating astroids.
Also, according to the website, I need to aerate the water. A Sea Monkey owner's job is never done! Back to the tank I go!

    I now understand why you are so busy. Those sea monkeys are evil task masters. I'm amazed you have any free time at all!

    They ARE executive Sea Monkeys! I think that means they have briefcases. Perhaps that's why they won't build a castle- they don't do that kind of work.

    When they get interesting I'll be sure to post a photo!

    lol When I was in 6th grade, we had sea monkeys as our class pet.
    Then someone knocked their tank over on the heater.
    Their little death screams still haunt my dreams
