There are various reasons why triops egg won't hatch at the same time. One major factor affecting these eggs are the temperature, lighting, and water quality. As emphasized previously, distilled water or spring water maybe used. It is emphasized moreover, that triops will hatch on a range of 18-48 hours. Thus, we would expect unsynchronized hatching off eggs. Moreover, aside from the environmental factors, the physiological dormancy of the eggs are also taken into consideration.
In a nutshell, two things are important. Environmental factor and the viability of the triops eggs.
