Aqua Dragons versus Sea Monkeys

Amy Holden Aqua Dragons Arteia Salina Sea Monkeys sea monkeys v aqua dragons

Over the last few months we have seen many comments on twitter and in Facebook page about whether Aqua Dragons are Sea Monkeys rebranded. Aqua Dragons are not Sea Monkeys but sometimes people get mixed up and use Sea Monkeys as a generic name for brine shrimp, or artemia, aka Aqua Dragons, a bit like people say they are hoovering for vacuuming when Hoover is a brand and they are probably using an electrolux anyway!

So we´d like to clarify in a public post,....Whilst both Sea Monkeys and Aqua Dragons are brine shrimp growing kits they are not associated companies or products at all, in fact they are competitive brands. It´s a bit like Pepsi and Coke, both competing cola drinks and two different formulas.

Aqua Dragons have a two pouch system (eggs and food), the food is our own unique formula, not used by any other parties worldwide. We developed this in conjuntion with a consulting biologist and it is very nutritionally effective, so much so that in our testing the Aqua Dragons were reproducing directly in the tank rather than laying eggs that would hatch after drying and laying dormant which is how the artemia often produce eggs. Scientific studies show that artemia salina only produce live offspring when they have optimum water conditions and feeding conditions, which our system provides.

In any case we´d like to express our respect and affection for all brine shrimp, aka artemia salina worldwide no matter what brand they come under!


En los útimos meses hemos visto muchos comentarios en twitter y en nuestra página de facebook sobre si los Aqua Dragons nos los Sea Monkeys bajo otro nombre. Los Aqua Dragons no son Sea Monkeys pero amenudo la gente se confunde y usa Sea Monkeys como un nombre genérico para la Artemia, también llamados Aqua Dragons, así como cuando una persona pide un cleenex en vez de un pañuelo de papel, y probablemente no están usando un Cleenex ya que es el nombre de la marca.

Así que nos gustaría aclararlo en un post público... Mientras que Sea Monkeys y Aqua Dragons son kits para criar a tus artemias salinas, no son compañías ni productos asociados, de hecho, son marcas competitivas. Es un poco como Pepsi y Coca Cola, ambas marcas competitivas en la fabricación de cola pero con dos fórmulas distintas.

Aqua Dragons tiene un sistema de dos sobres (huevos y comida), la comida es una fórmula propia nuestra, no está usada en ningún otro sitio en el mundo. Nosotros desarrollamos esta fórmula junto a un biólogo y es muy nutritiva y efectiva, tanto que los tests que realizamos con Aqua Dragons, se reproducían directamente en la pecera en vez de desprender los huevos que eclosionarían después de secarse, que es como las artemia normalmente producen sus huevos. Estudios científicos han demostrado que la artemia salina solo produce huevos cuando tienen unas condiciones en el agua óptimas así como las de alimentación, lo que precisamente nuestro sistema ofrece.

En cualquier caso, nos gustaría expresar nuestro respeto y afecto a todas las artemias salina, llamadas así en todo el mundo ¡independientemente de que marca sean!

    Is there a physical difference? Would you be able to put up photos of the differences? This doesn’t really help at all.
