Our experiment on brine shrimp.
When we did our experiment to see which environment they grew best in, we concluded that the shrimp grew best in tap water and sugar water.
We believe this because everyday we checked the shrimp using a telescope and the two with the most cases of hatched shrimp and the most shrimp moving around were those two.
One of the ways we had error during this experiment was when we didn't have an accurate way of measuring the shrimp so some had more or less than other tubes.
While doing this I observed that the shrimp in the sugar water tube tended to float around in the center of the tube while in the others they all went around the bottom, and they all tended to group together.
I under stood why the shrimp liked to be together because it is a small fishes instinct to group together so that they were bigger appearing so predators dont attack them.
Why did the shrimp grow best in tap water with CHLORINE in it, wouldn't they die? Or sugar water opposed to salt water their natural environment they are born to live in.
