Thank you MABJ! I'm super happy too. Of course IW as happy that just SOMETHING hatched out, the two week mark is a bonus. Oh, and that silly cray that was carrying fungus covered eggs finally dumped the fungus covered ones and now has about 20 babies on her. Crazy as I thought they were all goners.

I've had lots of babies, never any survivors with the CPOs. I've been tweaking the params though over the last few weeks in that tank to drop the GH and KH down to see if I can get a better outcome. We'll see

Um...guys? I had written off the eggs in the 2.5g tank with sterile sponge filter because of a poorly aerated sterile sponge filter, no moss, and bio contaminants on the eggs, fuzz on eggs because of bio contaminants....

Today I found a hatched baby! Is that crazy or what?!?

Don't know if there's other hatchlings or not yet...

Just went to take a pic and found another one! That's two so far! Is this wacky or what?

I honestly HONESTLY had just written these off but left it going for the "what the heck" factor.

Oh, and I know it's April 1st, but this is no April 1st joke! This is just plain amazing!

Jaime, our system is working!

Guys, if these babies can hatch from such a poor job as I did, with a little tweaking, this could really be effective!

Okay, now up to sighting 5 babies at once.

Interesting to note that the babies in the pumpkin tank all pretty much started orangish, where as these babies are stark white. Have a sliver of veggie stick in there now for them to munch on. Still extremely skittish.

LOL "Finding Shrimplets" Sounds like a tv show to me.

Thanks. I wouldn't normally be so pumped about common shrimplets, but I wrote these off as lost!
