i didnt read through the whole thread but this "splitting" is not normal and i think the egg/shrimp is dead.
the egg stays the same size the whole time.
in the coming weeks i will be photographing CRS eggs under a microscope as they are developing, ive done this before last semester without photo-documentation, just observing. this time i will photograph and take videos for everyone to enjoy, you can see many details such as individual pigments (red pigments and white pigments in the CRS), legs, tail, organs, and cell-like structures inside the egg. you can even see its heart beating.
head up for an exciting thread coming soon!
