Don't know , Doug. It disappeared over night. Only way in the tank is the small slit where the airline and heater cable fit through the lid. My parrot and her cage are only about two feet away. I suppose she could've gotten lucky while tossing her dinner. Lol!

Nice job Rob. I prefer the untouched pictures. Any sightings of the previous hatchlings?

No, I haven't found any. Hoping it's because there's too many places for them to hide!

Congrats. They're definitely slow breeders, but I think that your supplier's estimation of 1 or 2 at a time in a tank with hundreds was a bit pessimistic. I've got 100 or so and have had 3-4 berried consistently for the last several months. They're so finicky about getting started breeding, but once they start it seems to be a steady trickle.

My babies seem to grow oddly. They'll stay tiny for perhaps two weeks after leaving their larval stage and then all at once they quadruple in size and are hard to distinguish from smaller adults. I almost never see them in the 'in between' stages. I don't know if it's because they make a particular effort to hide at that point or what, but that's been my experience.
