Re: Aussie Breeding attempt #2 Dec 2016

I keep getting excited imagining that someone may be able to get their zoea/megalopa to land while I'm a part of this community :) I wish you the best of luck! Hi there PinchersAndShells. This is my second attempt. I got 20 to shells and transition last time and 6 to land but they didn't survive fi...

Re: Aussie Breeding attempt #2 Dec 2016

Tuesday 13th December Day 10 Not even in shells yet. 0830 and I did a 1/3 water change and checked with magnifying glass. Could see non in shells but they are in and around the shells getting the food that has settled there. Definitely not eating each other as there are 3 or 4 together getting the ...

Re: Aussie Breeding attempt #2 Dec 2016

I am very happy with the progress today. Did a final water change (33%) at midnight. Sat and watched for a little while and is going to sound really weird but I was looking through the magnifying glass again and I thought for about 2 seconds that one mega had a stinger (like bees) until I realised i...

Mega pigging out on beta food. A good sign that makes me much relieved.

Re: Aussie Breeding attempt #2 Dec 2016

Monday 12th December Day 9 I’m much relieved to be able to see gut tracks in both jars today. I can even see black spots where eyes are. They are growing. 0830 did a 33% water change and then added 1 drop of prime and a shake of food. Some in both jars are laying on their backs with legs out waiting...

Can't work out how to post images as I don't have them saved anywhere other than my computer or facebook.

Shell grit for birds is one source and I've also scoured the local beach shell grit. Plus Natalie Van Amstel has sent me some after my last attempt.

Re: Aussie Breeding attempt #2 Dec 2016

Well it seems I still have a lot to learn. High mortality rate in the synthetic ocean jar (jar 1) which is more than likely due to me doing water changes taking too much out at once. OK so next time (when the kriesel is up and running I plan to mark on the end of the tank top water level and then a ...

Before I left Bought some marine salt this morning. 1300 Looked carefully and definitely have lobster claws out the front and hanging onto shed skins. Put a bit of food and some shells in before I ...
