Day 5 of monkeys!

Today is the 5th day of mine Sea Monkey pwoject!
And on the instwuctions, they said to start feeding the monkeys on the fifth day, which means today!
I did, and I met with one tiny question.
Do I need to stir the water?
Because you see, all the food fwoated at the top of the water.
And although the aquawium isn't vewy huge, those monkeys are extwemewy small.
So to them, the bottom of the aquawium is wike a squiwwion miles away fwom the top of the aquawium.
How will the monkeys at the bottom know that food has awwived at the top?
Well anyway, I attempted to take a pictor of them monkeys with mine Mummy's wousy camewa. Obviouswy a wot of it has to be weft to your imagination.
Even circwing the monkeys out doesn't make it easier to spot them.
And iwonicawwy, the darkest spot on the pictor is not that of a monkey!

Man, I really do have to get me some sea monkeys.

Boy, here is what my direction packet says:

"The specially formulated food will gradually dissolve into the water so no stirring is required."

But you are also supposed to aerate the water. We used a skinny little cocktail straw and blew into the water a few times a day.

Sea Monkeys take a lot of work!

Anonymous said... if the food dissolves in the water, how do the monkeys eat it? we're very confused.

We think you should just eat the monkeys :-D They look very tasty.
Maybe the monkey food is good too

You are a scientist Boy!

Good luck and don't overfeed them. Apparently Daisy overfed her sea monkies and one of the kicked the proverbial bucket. FAZ

Wow! I am learning that sea monkeys are a lot of responsibility. I wanted to get some (because Momma won't let us have a fishie - grrr), but I don't know if I'm growed up enough yet.

This is very exciting! We can't wait to see if they grow. Of course, you must follow Daisy's instructions carefully. She knows everything.
