A sea monkey (Artemia salina
all the most famous biological experiments that were ever to exist, the
creation of sea monkeys probably stands as the most enjoyable. The purpose
of this experiment is to see whether the knowledge of the past two years
of Scientific AmeriKen's is sufficient in preparing one to actually get
a sea monkey kit to work.
on the new improvements in recent years (i.e. increased hatching rates
in sea monkeys) It is the hypothesis that by following the prescribed
directions, sea monkeys will eventually hatch.
All equipment is provided in a sea monkey starter kit. However, in this
experiment, the sea monkey company forgot to include "packet 1: Water purifyer"

with the additional steps of dumping a 'goodly' amount of salt and 3 drops
of fish bowl purifyer.

one week sea monkey life was visable! Within two weeks -- all the sea monkeys
experiment was successful and sea monkeys were brought to life under the
care of Scientific AmeriKen! A true marker that over the past two years,
scientific knowledge is indeed increasing. Unfortunantly, all the monkeys
died, for causes unknown, however believed to be a result of bacterial
infection, caused by wrongful water purification techniques. A letter
is has been sent to the company and new materials are being requested.
Results of this letter are still pending.
