Hope this works out for you. Next time mine hatch out, I am going to try a few things, but not actually collect them. I just want to see how well they are attracted by light and I may remove a few to see what they really look like.

Your female should be getting close to releasing. Are you going to try to collect this batch?

I'm going to try - I just got home from work and I have to go to another job shortly - No time to try and assemble the screen idea or get brine shrimp hatchery going tonight.

 

Hopefully I can squeeze out one more night and do the 2 projects tomorrow - The tank did okay overnight last night - I stopped the utube overflow and return pump - I moved the heater into the display and popped in a little jebo powerhead to keep circulation going. I rigged a small LED in the corner to try and keep any hatchlings grouped together. Will have to do it again tonight

 

Lalani (or anyone really) - Do you have exp. hatching BBS? Decapsulate or not? I made seamonkeys, but that was a looooonnnnnngg time ago.

congrats Aaron - How many? What tank are they going in? The AP or pico?

 

I ordered 3 from Dr. F & S. One was DOA. :(

The 2 that I have are in my Pico. They are fitting right in with the Rics... One of them hasn't moved more that 3 inches away from this green ric that I have since I put him in. I threw a couple pics up in my Rico Pico thread.

I don't have any experience with hatching bbs.... that's another thing I need to look into.

you'd think that a pimp would be happy his ladies aren't getting impregnated :P

 

Based on Lalani's hatch, I estimated mine to possibly occur tonight or tomorrow night. My goal today after work is to pickup a couple of 2 litre water bottles and get crackin' on a bbs hatchery so the fry'll have something to eat. Even if there's no hatch, I'll at least have a little exp. with hatching bbs.

I think you just made a very good point!

 

Let us know how the BBS hatchery works out. I was planning on using the same idea, so I'll see how it works out for you, before I try it.

Especially dangerous with your dirty mind. :P

I could be wrong, but the tail looks wider, like a female. If one is producing eggs and one is not, then you may be right about it being a male. :)

 

Just a heads up, mainly for yankee, my female is full of eggs again today.... Only 3 days since she released her last batch!

OK so another question....I am assuming that the other is molting in the cave because she is up under the top and kinda pale. Could she have released her eggs under there and be watching over them? Or do they not do that sorta thing?

My sexies have always molted during the night. What do you mean by pale? Is there any way you could get a pic of her? And my female sexy only releases her eggs at night also. She will send them off into the water column, clean up, molt, then sleep. (Yes, I'm actually keeping track of her.) :)
