pj86, you just successfully completed the full breeding cycle of Thor amboinensis. What are you going to do next? :]


lol, I might begin the culturing of flatworms. You know what that means....Blue velvet nudibranch project on the way!

Quick little update. So I counted 10-11 sexy shrimp. I have named them "los bandoleros", translates to "the bandits." I have grown quite attached to them but am not to certain if I'm going to keep the all. I will take pics and a video this weekend of them and their evil ways.

Today I decided to rear a second generation marine cultured sexy shrimps. This batched came from the original larva I had raised.



Will also document their settlement.

You are quite awesome, sir.

You're the type of man who passes by sports illustrated and grabs encyclopedia brittanica when you take a dump, huh?

Did someone mention Alto ???

That sucks :( It would be cool to see some tiny little pom poms. It's great you got the sexies to settle though. Keep raising them, we need more captive bred species on the market

Not sure, like 100 or so. I transferred the 2 females right before the spawning to the rearing tank. I had noticed they were seeking the highest point and I knew that they were going to spawn.

Been really busy with med school, and neglected the shrimps. Only one survived with erratic feeding and water changes. Here is a current picture, along side a dime for comparison in size
