+1 I have some project shrimp that would be very hard to replace if the berries died.

Welcome Frik and Frak Baby #2 was just hatched. One egg not looking so good, another is tucked into the sponge and I can't see it well so these may be the only 2 out of the batch.

They're precious. Did anything different happen with them that it worked?

They weren't stuck in clusters...they were individuals though somewhat close to other eggs they weren't 'attached' with the goo that holds them together in the momma 'belly'. Also, these were more towards the outer edge of the sponge...however they weren't always like that as I occasionally moved their position on the sponge. Main thing is they were separated out.

Hmm. Maybe that's the common bond between them. Hope it works with the last one.

Thank you Wicca! I'm hoping they both make it past the critical point. I always get nervous looking for them every day. Today they just happened to both be front and center. I've got a small bit of IAL leaf, moss, and alder cones in there with them. But for now they stay on the sponge. They've gotten two tiny doses of bioplus, one the day they were born and yesterday. By this weekend they should be able to eat actual baby food so I'm going to spot feed some Ebiken EI (roll it in little balls and place it near them).

That is my hope! If they just live I'll be happy but it sure would be a bonus if they had red legs like momma.

Yeah, I've noticed my CRS and Golden babies often have red eyes for the first week then they begin to turn black. Though some of the Goldens hang on to the red eyes for a lot longer.
