That's what they are and it actually says so on the package. Imagine my dissappointment when, after 30 years of wanting them and not being able to(MOMS) I finally got them and they did not sit around the living room and eat lunch and play with their kids like on the commercials! What a rip off!!!! Kids really do believe everything they see.

If I remember correctly, Sea Monkeys are a specific subspecies or variety of typical brine shrimp, but still brine shrimp nathless.

They hatch in 3 days I belive.. Then take 2 weeks to to "feeder" stage... And you can keep them for a pretty long time !

With a lamp and an airstone, ph 8 and specific gravity of ~1.025, they hatch in 24 hours for me. If you haven't already looked at it, check out http://www.aqualink.com/marine/z-atemia.html

Also, I've kept both and sea monkeys, artemia NYOS (New York Ocean Science Laboratories where the hybrid Sea-Monkeys were developed) grow longer and live longer than regular artemia.
