Good news!

Some time on Saturday/Sunday my female CRS delivered her first babies. I noticed two babies this AM, though I saw that she was sans eggs yesterday AM (I assumed she had dropped the eggs, since it was only about 23 days since I first noticed her her carrying).

And it gets better! I found a fresh molt this AM, then looked for her ... berried again! Woohoo!

Looks like this little eco-system is working so far.

Hopefully I'll find more than the two I've spotted so far. I mixed up a little cocktail of artificial rotiferous plankton and powdered spirulina and squirted some into the moss near the babies ... sound like a good idea? Also added a bit of dried oak leaf to the tank yesterday, just for another food source.
