Both shot-films show eating larvae. And they are veerrrry hungry! *g*

Awesome!

And yes, they are really really hungry :shock:

@kuza and nat: only with 20x magnification. Higher magnification and megalopa don't fit into the image section. ;)

By the way: Since nearly 3 days Curlz is hosting over 100 of my larvea. I still have over 1000.^^
And I have seen her little cabbys!!! They are sooo cute! :love7:

:D Spoiler-alert: Curlz has new larvae since yesterday (and still some of mine). :D

As for my larvae: They are well. Only few loses each day. Sill about 1000 larvae in kreiseltanks or bubbling-bottles.

And here is a new picture I made this morning:
