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!

I have heaps for now but seeing this is my second go it seems likely I may get more opportunities. Where are you GotButterflies? I'm in NE NSW.

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 final moult. Hopefully I'll have more success this time or the next time.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes folks. Just keep your fingers (and toes) crossed that some of this lot survive to land.

Thanks for the offer but I am able to source some quite easily here in Australia. Cheers though.
