I didn't see them this morning- I'm hoping they are on the bottom, but I have no idea. The bottom is very busy with tiny shells. No clue. Still putting brine shrimp eggs in.

GB, you gave it a great shot! Hoping and praying the other two are still kicking in there:) Also praying that you feel better soon! It's difficult to manage every day life + chronic illnesses + raising baby hermies! Hats off to you! I'm sure it has been a wild experience and I hope when it happens again that you will let us all follow u on this journey again^_^

I HAVE ZOEA!!!!!

Post by GotButterflies » Sat Jul 21, 2018 10:02 am

Well...this morning I found eggs on a rock in the PP's 75 gallon tank. Not sure how long they have been sitting there. I set up a mason jar with water from my saltwater tank that I have had up and running since last year with a bubbler to see if the eggs were still viable. I've had the air stone running for a good 1/2 hour now, and have only seen a couple live ones. So sad. I wish I had noticed them earlier.

I made a kriesel, but I'm not going to set it up for just a couple!. I'll post a pic of the eggs.ImageImage

Well...lots of them survived, and she dropped more eggs in the rock while I was feeding them. I’ve been busy with Baseball, so hopefully I can get some pics up later!
