Re: Aussie Zoea - raising attempt 2016

Two glass jars in a foam esky. Esky had tap water and a fish tank heater. Jars had ocean water and an airstone. Nothing fancy.

Re: Aussie Zoea - raising attempt 2016

2 water changes today and feeding at 3-4 hourly intervals. More tiny (smaller even) shells added. Last water change was done at 1815 and the water is quite clear. Some spiral water snail shells were added as well to offer a variety. Megalopa definately ready for shells. Nat keeps asking me are there...

Re: Aussie Zoea - raising attempt 2016

Seems that all 7 transfered to the other jar (with fewer shells) did not make it. BUT there are still quite a few in the main jar. Some really really tiny shells were added today and the megalopa are swimming up to the surface to check them out and still checking the ones on the bottom as well. They...

Re: Aussie Zoea - raising attempt 2016

In the last video all are megalopas! They need shells right now to hide. Otherwise they will eat each other, until there is only one left. Hi Naalide, thanks for that yep I realised a bit late they were ready for shells. BUT they got them tonight and showed interest for sure. Hopefully some will go...

Re: Aussie Zoea - raising attempt 2016

https://vimeo.com/151960225 day 6 and one lot are still going strong. Slow motion video clip. The other jar have not fared so well. I added a bio filter to that one. Many got sucked into the very fine soft foam. I gently removed them and the filter. Most if not all are now sinking straight to the b...

Re: Aussie Zoea - raising attempt 2016

Well the numbers are dropping drastically. Not many dead bodies or skins so maybe they are eating already OR the debris is being broken up by the bubbles. I tried a bio filter in one jar. It filters out stuff and aerates the air and keeps the circulation happening. BUT even though the foam is so sof...
